Initial configuration of firewalls, switches and access points can be a difficult proposition, often requiring expert staff on site to configure each device individually. FortiDeploy greatly simplifies initial configuration and onboarding by providing one-touch provisioning when devices are deployed, locally or remotely. FortiDeploy provides deployment for FortiAPs into a Cloud AP Network, and automatic connection of FortiGates to be managed by FortiCloud.
Hundreds of FortiGates or FortiAPs can be provisioned by using a bulk key in distributed environments, such as large retail or education networks. Once a communication tunnel is established, FortiCloud leverages provisioning profiles and setup wizards to quickly configure managed devices as required.
Consistent configuration of the devices within your network is essential to maintaining an optimal performance and security posture. FortiCloud provides a central web-based management console to control Fortinet devices. Device settings such as IP addresses or SSIDs can be centrally configured for individual devices or pushed to multiple devices. Configuration backups are kept in FortiCloud to assist with replacement or recovery efforts. Device firmware updates can also be centrally managed and controlled, thereby ensuring uniformed policy enforcement and allowing you to take advantage of the latest features.
Log retention is an integral part of any security and compliance best practice, but administering a separate storage system can be burdensome and costly. FortiCloud takes care of this automatically and stores your valuable log information securely in the cloud. Depending on your device, you can easily store and access different types of logs including traffic, system, web, applications and security events. The default free service provides 7 days of logs, the subscription service extends this to 1 full year of logs.
FortiCloud supports two factor authentication using the FortiToken application which is provided as a free security service with the product.
If you’re deploying FortiAP wireless access points, you’ll want to make sure your WiFi infrastructure stays up and running. FortiCloud provides information about your access point uptime along with performance metrics to ensure your WiFi is operating smoothly.
Wireless health statistics are tracked along with client connection data. FortiAP devices can even be rendered on an interactive map to give you a complete view of your wireless infrastructure.
Managing wireless guest usage can be cumbersome if administered separately at each remote site, with simple misconfigurations potentially opening up your network to security threats. For organizations in hospitality and retail in particular, centralized guest access management is a must have. FortiCloud allows you to fully control how guests access your wireless network and includes features such as customizable captive portals for authentication.
The FAP-S model access points can provide much of the FortiGuard suite of threat management services. The Advanced Management license includes the subscription to these services along with the 1 year log retention and FortiCare 8×5 support. Additional features such as the Bonjour Relay, which allows Bonjour protocols to be easily copied between layer 2 domains, are also included in the FAP-S Enterprise License.
The more traditional FAP series and the Connectivity range FAP-C series also benefit from extended logs and FortiCare support with the Advanced Management License.
Advanced radio configuration options, dynamic VLANs based on RADIUS attributes and intra SSID client isolation can be enabled on the FAP and the FAP-S access points.
If you’re deploying FortiGates, you can harness the power and expertise of Fortinet’s FortiGuard Labs global threat research team to inspect potentially malicious files. FortiGate firewalls can upload suspicious files to FortiCloud, where it will execute the file in a sandboxed environment and analyze the resulting behavior for risk. If the file exhibits risky behavior or is found to contain a virus, the FortiGuard team creates a new virus signature and adds it to the FortiGuard anti-malware database. You can then review the status of any files you submit from within your FortiCloud console.
In order to place better security controls on your network, you must first know how it is being utilized. FortiCloud’s extensive set of dashboards gives you an immediate view of FortiGate usage, including a breakdown of network traffic and bandwidth usage. FortiCloud analytics provides you with drill-down and filtering functionality to instantly determine how applications, websites, user and threats are impacting your network.
Periodic review of network and security activity is essential in order to keep costs down and security breaches at bay. Reporting allows you to be proactive about optimizing your network and satisfying executive staff scrutiny. FortiCloud provides both preconfigured and custom reports to give you the information you need for your specific reporting and compliance requirements. Reports can be either ad-hoc or scheduled and can be either downloaded or emailed to interested parties.
FortiCloud encrypts all communication, including log information, between your FortiGate devices and the cloud. Fortinet deploys redundant data centers to give the FortiCloud service its high availability. Fortinet has also used its years of experience in protecting sophisticated networks around the world to implement operational security measures that make sure your data is secure and only you can view or retrieve it.
FortiGuard Indicator of Compromise (IOC) is an automated breach defense system that continuously monitors your network for attacks, vulnerabilities, and persistent threats. It provides protection against legitimate threats, guarding customer data and
defending against fraudulent access, malware, and breaches. It also helps businesses detect and prevent fraud from compromised devices or accounts.
With IOC, network security controls are in place to rapidly detect and respond to security events by analyzing your network traffic, evaluating security parameters and using global intelligence.
IOC is a post-infection solution. We detect infected or highly suspicious devices in your network, analyze the risk the infected devices represent and notify you about them. As a result, you can clean up the infected device and minimize your business risk. With the advanced plan, you can instantly see which machines are infected.
IOC improves your security posture and helps safeguard your organization through accurate detection of advanced threats. Fortinet Indicator of Compromise Service is available as an add-on service on FortiCloud.
