Secure SD-Branch Facilitates Digital Innovation
Fortinet Secure SD-WAN technology is integrated with network access to deliver the most secure and manageable remote branch in the industry. To address the explosion of IoT devices, Fortinet Secure SD-Branch further utilizes FortiGate next-generation firewall capabilities to offer NAC services onboard. Administrators can not only discover and secure IoT devices, but also detect anomalies by using FortiGate as a network sensor for our FortiNAC product.
Secure SD-Branch follows the Fortinet security-driven networking philosophy, powered by FortiLink, which integrates wired and wireless services into the security infrastructure through FortiOS. Key FortiLink benefits include a common management platform and integrated security, enabling Ethernet switch and WLAN interfaces to be controlled with the same level of enforcement as firewall interfaces. FortiLink switch and wireless integration requires no license. It is included as part of the FortiOS running on every FortiGate.
Extend the benefits of the Fortinet Security Fabric
Fortinet SD-Branch enables customers to converge their security, WAN, and LAN, extending the benefits of the Fortinet Security Fabric to their distributed branches.
Secure SD-Branch is comprised of FortiGate Secure SD-WAN, FortiSwitch, and FortiAP to deliver consolidation of branch services for LAN edge. To extend protection to the device edge, built-in NAC features in our FortiOS operating system allow for secure onboarding of devices. Additional real-time auditing of device behavior can be obtained by adding FortiNAC network access control capabilities.
Keeping you ahead of threats
The Fortinet Security Fabric continuously assesses the risks and automatically adjusts to provide comprehensive real-time protection across the digital attack surface and cycle.
