Distributed enterprise branches transitioning to a digital business model are having a significant impact on the network. With enterprise users both remote and local directly accessing the internet for cloud and Security-as-a-Service (SaaS) applications, the WAN and access edges are getting more complicated than ever. Moreover, Internet-of-Things (IoT) devices entering the branch network introduce new vulnerabilities for attackers to exploit. It is becoming critical to deploy next-generation security strategies to support this new paradigm.
Fortinet Secure SD-Branch enables customers to converge their security and network access, extending the benefits of the Fortinet Security Fabric to their distributed branches. Secure SD-Branch is comprised of FortiGate next-generation firewall, FortiNAC network access control, FortiSwitch, and FortiAP to deliver consolidation of branch services for network edge and device edge protection.
