Centralized Security Management System

Internet of things (IoT) and cloud force networks are evolving while many solutions with varying management tools strain security teams. FortiManager provides visibility across the entire Fortinet Security Fabric and manages Fortinet’s security and networking devices.

The Fortinet Security Fabric is a framework connecting your security devices together for effective, efficient, and comprehensive security.

Centralized FortiAP management

As WiFi business continue to gain momentum, we're adding this module to help user centrally manage all of the AP's in an enterprise deployment. Users can drill-down to the individual APs and clients.

Network Security Operating System

The FortiOS enables the Security Fabric, letting you control the security and networking capabilities in all your Fortinet Security Fabric elements with one OS.

The FortiOS GUI redesign improves the visibility into your network traffic. I produced visual mockups to view traffic by source, destination, application, threat, interface, device, policy, and country.
