In addition, with Fortinet’s SOHO and SME FortiGate models, security administrators are now able to cost-effectively deploy the same level of IPS protection at branch offices that in the past was only available for the corporate headquarters. By tightly integrating industry leading security technologies IPS, antivirus, antispam, web filtering, VPN and Stateful Firewall, Fortinet delivers comprehensive solution for enterprises and service providers to combat the complex network and content level threats that use multiple methods to infect hosts and self-propagate.

FortiManager™ centralized management delivers a single console interface to manage hundreds of FortiGate systems.
For traditional IDS deployments, the FortiGate system’s flexible architecture supports monitoring of traffic from a network tap or mirrored interfaces from the core switch. The FortiGate system can generate detailed traffic logs and alerts for analysis and auditing.
