Next Generation Firewall technologies from Fortinet offer integrated, high-performance protection against today's wide range of advanced threats targeting your applications, data, and users. In todayís environment, businesses are realizing that traditional enterprise network security solutions such as firewalls, intrusion detection systems and host-based antivirus are no longer adequate to protect against new, sophisticated attacks. In order to defend networks against the latest threats, NGFW should include, at a minimum, an integrated intrusion prevention system (IPS) with deep packet scanning, the ability to identify and control applications running over a network, and the ability to verify a userís identity and enforce access policies accordingly. In addition, Fortinet now offers Advanced Threat Protection (ATP) in FortiGate Next Generation Firewalls providing enhanced security tools to combat and mitigate multi-vector persistent attacks.
