As global companies increasingly rely on e-business to gain competitive advantage, they are more and more relying on networked supply-chain management and Internet trading communities that offer manufacturers efficient means to build an extended enterprise. Because sensitive, business-critical information flows through VPNs in and out of the corporate network, gateway security at the central data center level, as well as network perimeters, is required to prevent harmful virus, worm and intrusion attacks.
Fortinet’s FortiGate™ Multi-threat Security systems address the key network protection needs of manufacturing networks. Fortinet’s ASIC-powered systems scan email, IM, Web and file transfer content at the network edge and in real time - protecting the manufacturing network from viruses, worms and other inappropriate and malicious content before it can enter the network. In addition, every FortiGate system includes built-in intrusion detection, intrusion prevention, firewall, VPN, web filtering, spam filtering and traffic shaping functionality in one easy to install, maintain and update unit.
A few of the manufacturers that rely on Fortinet for Network Protection
Crompton Greaves DaimlerChrysler Services AG Toyota Deutschland GmbH Pulte Homes Boston Scientific Siam United Steel Archer Daniels Midland Tyco Flow Control Pte Ltd Northern Manufacturing Meyer Manufacturing Co. Ltd. Nissan
"At the beginning of the project, Nissan Korea explained that they recognized the need to have a credible network security system in place. Fortinet was a proven brand, with many foreign automobile companies already using FortiGate systems, and for us, the most important factor was the superior performance of the FortiGate systems, even with security functions such as antivirus, firewall and VPN turned on."
