With the ever growing use of mobile devices, social networks, cloud-based applications and evolving intrusions, your business is under constant threat. Whilst deliberate outside attacks are a huge concern, your own employees unwittingly threaten your network by opening email-borne viruses, running bandwidth-hungry applications and accessing the wrong websites on a daily basis.

Both purposeful and accidental breaches of your network can be crippling and sometimes cause enough damage that businesses just cannot recover. With the average cost of each security breach to small businesses ranging from £65,000-£115,000, securing your business’ vital assets is critical.

As network threats evolve and new threats emerge, network security must change and adapt to protect against such threats.

With the ever growing use of mobile devices, social networks, cloud-based applications and evolving intrusions, your business is under constant threat. Whilst deliberate outside attacks are a huge concern, your own employees unwittingly threaten your network by opening email-borne viruses, running bandwidth-hungry applications and accessing the wrong websites on a daily basis.

Both purposeful and accidental breaches of your network can be crippling and sometimes cause enough damage that businesses just cannot recover. With the average cost of each security breach to small businesses ranging from £65,000-£115,000, securing your business’ vital assets is critical.

As network threats evolve and new threats emerge, network security must change and adapt to protect against such threats.

Unfortunately, many organisations continue to rely on non-integrated, legacy security systems built around traditional Firewalls and stand-alone appliances to maintain network security.

Unified Threat Management  (UTM) provides the solution, it is the simplest and most effective way for organisations to manage the latest security threats. UTM is the concept of consolidating multiple network security functions – application control, content filtering, malware screening, intrusion prevention and more – into a single Next-Generation Firewall device.

The award-winning FortiGate Next-Generation Firewall delivers a full Unified Threat Management (UTM) solution, providing organisations with a cost-effective and simplified way of dealing with today’s sophisticated, evolving security threat landscape.

Here’s how a Next Generation Firewall works:

 

Web Content Filtering

Web Content Filtering

Web Content Filtering

Web Content Filtering
The use of a diverse range of techniques to determine if a web request should be permitted or not based on a number of configurable parameters.

For example, using reputation services or analytic techniques to scan websites for security violations.

UTM tools typically offer malware-scanning capabilities for email and web traffic, and in some cases, for other network-application traffic frequently used to spread malware (e.g. instant messaging services).

Intrusion Prevention Systems (IPS)

Intrusion Prevention Systems monitor, identify, log and prevent both previously known and unknown attacks using a combination of methods, such as signature, anomaly and reputation-based detection.

A Firewall inspects inbound and outbound traffic on a network, allowing safe traffic to pass while blocking unsafe traffic.

While Firewalls are not as effective as they used to be – because the nature of attacks has changed – they are still a fundamental aspect of network security control.

Application Control

Application Control

Application Control

Application Control

Provides the ability to identify and control applications on networks and endpoints.

Application control is increasingly important for network security because many applications are either malicious in nature or contain exploitable vulnerabilities that can lead to compromises.

Social engineering has become one of the most common methods used to compromise systems.

AntiSpam is therefore essential to stop incoming email-based attacks, as well as internally generated spam messages (from compromised desktops and laptops) from being sent outside the organisation.

Virtual Private Network

VPN technology protects an organisation’s network activity from eavesdropping or unauthorised manipulation by providing secure remote access to networks.

VPNs allow employees, for example, to securely access their company’s network while outside the office.

Business benefits include:

  • One platform for end-to-end security across your entire network with 360 visibility and intuitive controls through a single pane of glass interface
  • Models to satisfy any deployment scenario
  • Effective across all elements of the attack cycle- prevention, detection and mitigation.
  • Industry tested and validated for superior security effectiveness (NSS Labs “Recommended” NGFW and NGIPS solutions)
  • Best-in-class performance/value to keep your network moving fast and reduce operating expenses
  • As networks are ever-expanding our solutions leave room to grow over time
  • Automatic download of updates to protect against the latest threats
