Fortinet Redefines the Open Security Platform

Fortinet uniquely delivers an effective security platform – the Fortinet Security Fabric – built around three critical principles: 

Broad – Visibility and protection need to extend across the entire digital attack surface. With data and workloads crossing between a variety of device form factors and network ecosystems, platforms need to provide a holistic view into devices, traffic, applications and events, while also stopping threats.

Integrated – The integration of tools and systems using open standards, common operating systems and unified management platforms enables the sharing and correlation of real-time threat intelligence. This common framework also supports the coordinated detection of advanced threats through sophisticated, centralized analytics that are difficult or impossible to achieve using traditionally isolated security deployments.

Automated – Like today’s digital business, cyber crime happens at digital speeds. The time between a network breach and the compromise of data or systems will soon be measured in microseconds. Security systems need to automatically provide continuous assessment and then provide an immediate, coordinated response of detected threats.

Effective security platforms also need to be open. That means they are built using an open architecture and industry standards, and provide Application Programming Interfaces (APIs) to ensure that third-party solutions that weren’t natively installed on the platform can still be easily incorporated into a unified platform. This ensures that no security tool ever functions in isolation, but as part of an integrated security framework by sharing threat intelligence and participating in coordinated responses to detected threats.

Fortinet’s Open Fabric Ecosystem Spurs Digital Innovations

Fortinet is deeply committed to the idea of an open security environment. The Fortinet Fabric-Ready Alliance Partner Program brings together a community of technology alliance partners to enable comprehensive solutions. It provides alliance partners with resources and tools, enabling them to integrate with the Fortinet Security Fabric and be part of the Fortinet Open Fabric Ecosystem. Fortinet’s Open Fabric Ecosystem just passed the threshold of more than 355 technology integrations, making it one of the most extensive cybersecurity ecosystems in the industry.

Fabric-Ready technology alliance solutions provide customers with more effective security, and are pre-integrated, saving customers time and resources in deployment, operations and support.  

By removing complexity and unifying fragmented solutions, the Fortinet Open Fabric Ecosystem spurs digital innovations faster and more securely.  Fortinet’s Open Fabric Ecosystem approach extends the Security Fabric to technology partners through Fabric ConnectorsFabric APIs and DevOps tools:

Fabric Connectors: Fortinet Fabric Connectors are Fortinet-developed deep integrations with technology partners to automate security operations and policies. This also enables Fortinet to interconnect with a customer’s multi-vendor ecosystem to synchronize security with operational changes, automate security tasks, and supports DevOps processes – all while ensuring protection of the entire attack surface, from Internet of Things (IoT) devices to the cloud.

Fabric APIs: Fortinet’s technology alliance partners can use Fabric APIs to develop integration with the Fortinet Security Fabric to actively collect and share threat and mitigation information. This improves threat intelligence, enhances overall threat awareness, and broadens end-to-end threat response. These APIs also enable automated operations through the sharing of local and global threat intelligence across security components, allowing them to orchestrate a coordinated, rapid threat response to cyber threats.

Fabric DevOps: Providing community-driven automation scripts on open source platforms enables automated network and security provisioning, configuration, and orchestration. DevOps tools and scripts developed by Fortinet, technology partners and customers leverage the Security Fabric and provide full automation of Fortinet security provisioning and configuration management. DevOps tools and scripts enable community-driven security innovation and accelerate time to deployment. They are published on the Fortinet Developer NetworkGitHub, and other online repositories.

Open Platforms are Essential for Securing Digital Business

As the number of connected devices and the implementation of new edges grows, the attack surface is expanding, making it challenging for organizations to protect and manage their network. And far too many organizations are trying to secure these digital transformation efforts with security solutions that don’t communicate with each other, fragmented management tools, and have low visibility of workflows and policies.

In such an environment, the value of an open security platform cannot be overstated. Security tools that cannot see each other or work together to identify and mitigate threats can actually reduce visibility and control, enabling threats to slip through the confusion. And as networks continue to expand and transform to keep up with the demands of today’s digital economy – and exponentially expand their potential attack surface in the process – organizations need more visibility, not less, combined with the ability to automatically deliver a rapid, coordinated response to threats, anywhere and everywhere they occur.
