See The “Who, What, Where, When And How” With Fortinet ZTNA

Fortinet Zero Trust Network Access is a combination of Fortigate Next-Generation Firewall and Forticlient ZTNA Agent that work together to enable end-user employees to work from anywhere, securely.


Fifty nine percent of the U.S. workforce now prefers a hybrid work model over solely working remotely or onsite.

Business owners need to be sure their employee devices and company data get the same level of security working from a remote location as they would in the office. That’s where Zero Trust Network Access from Fortinet comes in.

Zero Trust Network Access, or ZTNA, is a combination of Fortigate Next-Generation Firewall and Forticlient ZTNA Agent. Together, these solutions ensure only authorized users have access to applications located in the cloud, on-prem or in datacenters. “We like to call it universal ZTNA, because it doesn’t matter where the application is hosted or where the user is working. If they’re working in the office or working remotely, we can provide those and enforce those ZTNA policies for all those applications, for all those locations,” says Peter Newton, senior director of product marketing, ZTNA, Fortinet.

Unlike VPN, which allows any user to move freely throughout a network once accessed, Fortinet ZTNA restricts access to individual applications each time they’re interacted with. “With ZTNA, you’re going to have to go through that same verification process to make sure that you should have access to that application and you’re in an appropriate time, location, your device is in an appropriate posture, so that you should have access to that application,” says Newton.

Transitioning an organization from a traditional VPN to Fortinet ZTNA is easy. With Fortinet, you’re using the same architecture as you would for a VPN, making the deployment of ZTNA a seamless experience for the end-user employee. “The IT organization can move a group of users one at a time, application at a time, so that they can gradually transition from VPN to ZTNA in a very controlled process,” Newton says.
