Blended Security Threats Within Small Businesses and Enterprises
Cyber crime and network attacks pose serious threats to small businesses. Intellectual property, revenue, customer and company records, and other mission-critical resources are at risk. As larger companies work to increasingly lock down their networks, more and more security threats are being targeted at smaller companies. Small office/home offices (SOHO) often lack the infrastructure to meet the technical sophistication of today’s complex blended-attack methods and remote offices/branch offices (ROBO) often lack the on-site expertise to tackle such complex security issues. Point-based security appliances are inadequately equipped to protect against these types of attacks because of the multitude of attack vectors used. At Integratech we partner with the foremost provider of unified security, Fortinet. The ‘FortiGate’ series of SOHO and ROBO security appliances tightly integrate multi-threat protection onto a purpose-built platform to effectively block application and network-borne attacks.
Cost-Effective Security Platform
The Fortinet FortiGate series of security appliances deliver high performance, multi-threat protection at a compelling cost that is ideal for securing smaller locations. Complete Unified Threat Management (UTM) features including firewall, VPN, intrusion prevention, web filtering, antispam, antivirus, antispyware, traffic shaping and IM/P2P controls, prevent blended attacks or unauthorised use from interrupting business. All FortiGate devices support High Availability (HA) configurations to ensure maximum uptime. FortiGate appliances operate in either transparent or routing modes and are available with integrated multi-port switches and modems, integrated WiFi access points and PC Card slots for 3G/UMTS modems, all of which enable FortiGate devices to adapt to any network environment. Moreover, with Fortinet FortiGuard Security Subscription Services, the FortiGate-50 thru -110 Series becomes an affordable and easy-to-manage security solution for an enterprise’s remote/branch offices, a service provider’s customer premise equipment (CPE) or as an all-in-one solution for small-to-medium businesses.
Secure Wired and Wireless Gateways for Small Business
Firewall + Antivirus + Antispam + Intrusion Prevention + Web Filtering
Through the integration of essential security technologies, Fortinet protects both mobile workers and workstations at SOHO and ROBO locations. To keep resources safe, Fortinet’s advanced antivirus, antispyware, antispam, and intrusion prevention systems utilise the integrated FortiASIC processor and a combination of signature and heuristic detection engines to provide multi-layered, real-time protection against a multitude of attacks. The FortiWifi series offers the ability to broadcast multiple SSIDs (Service Set Identifiers), maximising infrastructure flexibility in multi-provider environments and conserving spectrum. Moreover, different security policies can be set for each SSID, increasing security flexibility. FortiGate 60-series models provide a PC card slot that allows a 3G/UMTS PC card to be used for secure network connectivity.
Enterprise ROBO Deployment
Firewall + VPN + Secure Messaging (Email, IM and P2P)
Workers at various remote offices are tasked with vastly different business processes: some use messaging applications while others use database applications. Sales offices that use email and IM applications are protected from blended threats that use multiple methods to attack a system- viruses that spawn dormant Trojans, rootkits, and bots, for example. Combining Fortinet’s antivirus and antispam technology with IM and P2P controls, employees are assured that email and IM messaging remain secure and won’t result in lost revenue or lost data. Application and database users, such as a remote manufacturing site, are guaranteed secure connectivity—via firewalls and VPNs—to the application servers it uses at the central office.Finally, Fortinet offers a complete management solution for centralised monitoring, reporting, logging, and analysis to ensure that remote offices remain up and running.
