FortiPortal consists of two major components — a collector engine that processes network events (typically from FortiAnalyzer) for reporting and a portal engine that facilitates customer device configuration (which interacts with FortiManager). The FortiPortal VM acts as a backend interface to both FortiAnalyzer and FortiManager where it maintains aggregated logs and customer configuration information. Customers can manage their own devices through a self-service portal and the service provider can access a multi-tenant interface which shows a variety of administrative functions. FortiPortal gives the service provider multi-site visibility and control, automated alerts and user analytics that make deploying, securing, and centrally managing branch and distributed networks very easy and intuitive.
