Digital innovation (DI) initiatives are designed to improve a company’s efficiency and customer experience. However, this is often accomplished by deploying new systems and solutions, including Internet-of-Things (IoT) devices, mobile devices, cloud computing, and new branch locations. These create additional security and operational complexities that open up an organization to new cyber risks.

As digital attack surfaces expand and the cyber-threat landscape evolves, security teams commonly attempt to address new risks through deployment of point security products. However, the additional complexity associated with monitoring and managing these point solutions, exacerbated by new data protection regulations, leaves security teams unprepared to protect the organization against cyber threats.

Software-defined wide-area networking (SD-WAN) is rapidly replacing traditional WAN for remote office and branch deployments. While SD-WAN offers performance benefits that support new digital innovations, many SD-WAN solutions lack consolidated networking and security features. In response, many network leaders have had to add a complex assortment of tools and solutions to manage and protect their SD-WAN deployments. Instead, they need a simplified approach to contain costs, improve efficiency, and reduce risks. FortiGate Secure SD-WAN addresses each of these requirements, combining next-generation firewalls (NGFWs) with integrated solutions for management and analytics to centralize and simplify SD-WAN operations.

Managing voice communications has become increasingly challenging as corporate offices have become more geographically distributed, employees have begun working remotely or using mobile devices, and more and more businesses have adopted a bring-your-own-device policy. Legacy communications technologies supported by onsite network engineering and operations staff have difficulty supporting these environments. Many are also left unprotected against fraudsters and intruders. That is why Fortinet offers a scalable, comprehensive voice communications solution.

As organizations accelerate their digital innovation initiatives, it is essential that their security infrastructure is able to keep up
with the new network edges being put in place along with the increasingly complex and fast-evolving threat landscape.

Organizations face a number of different potential emergency situations, such as illness, flood, hurricanes, and power outages. Implementing a business continuity plan is essential to ensuring that the organization is capable of maintaining operations in the face of adversity and preparing for potential disasters.

An important consideration for organizations developing a business continuity plan is that the organization may not be capable of sustaining normal operations onsite. The ability to support employees working remotely is essential to ensuring both business continuity and security. Fortinet solutions offer an integrated solution to support telework. FortiGate next-generation firewalls (NGFWs) have built-in support for IPsec virtual private networks (VPNs), enabling remote workers to connect securely to the company network. With endpoint protection, provided by FortiClient, and multi-factor authentication (MFA) with FortiAuthenticator, organizations can securely support remote work and maintain business continuity.

The term “the Internet of things” was coined by Kevin Ashton of Procter & Gamble in 1999. ”Things”, in the IoT sense, can refer to a wide variety of devices such as heart monitoring implants, biochip transponders on farm animals, cameras streaming live feeds, or automobiles with built-in sensors. Ashton correctly foresaw a world in which large numbers of connected things would communicate with each other autonomously via the internet—effectively creating an internet of things that is distinct from the internet of people.

The coronavirus has forced millions of corporate and government employees to work from home, and has created challenges for many companies that did not plan effectively for a majority-remote workforce. In order to maintain productivity, companies not only need a fast adoption of communications tools to ensure business continuity but they also need to help remote employees deal with the new way of working—securely

When a cyber threat grows in magnitude by 35 times in one year, and continues to become even more prevalent the next, every organization should pay attention. This is exactly what happened with ransomware. Cyber criminals have targeted organizations from many different industry segments, as well as businesses of virtually every size.

Ransomware-as-a-Service (RaaS) and other kit-like tools have lowered the entry bar for cyber criminals, enabling even novice attackers to be successful against scattered security infrastructures. And monetary technologies like bitcoin make it virtually impossible for law enforcement authorities to track ransom payments. With the exponential growth in ransom paid to ransomware groups, the prospect that this will continue—and at a faster rate—in coming years is great. Recognizing the growing threat, banks are stocking up on bitcoin so their customers can quickly pay cyber criminals to unlock hacked data.
