FortiNAC Provides Visibility and Control of IoT Devices and Automated Response to Threats, Controls Access at Scale in Multi-Vendor Environments
Fortinet has introduced FortiNAC, a new network access control product line that delivers network segmentation and automated responses for IoT security.
FortiNAC product line delivers network access control to secure IoT environments and provides enhanced visibility, control and automated response capabilities.
FortiNAC provides detailed profiling of each device on the network and enables granular network segmentation and automated responses for changes in device status or behavior. This ensures each device only has access to approved items on the network.
“FortiNAC allows organizations to identify every single device on the network and enables segmentation, giving each device access only to approved items. This functionality is delivered all within a solution that works with multi-vendor environments and an unlimited number of devices. FortiNAC strengthens the Fortinet Security Fabric for IoT deployments, delivering broad, integrated and automated cybersecurity solutions across the entire attack surface,” says Rajesh Maurya, Regional Vice President, India & SAARC at Fortinet. “In the world of IoT, FortiNAC answers the question ‘what’s on your network’ and then enables you to protect it.”
FortiNAC diminishes the security risks associated with unsecured devices accessing the network by giving organizations total visibility of endpoints, users, trusted and untrusted devices and applications. Once visibility has been achieved, FortiNAC establishes dynamic controls that ensure that all devices, whether wired or wirelessly connected, are authenticated or authorized, and are subject to a context-driven policy that defines who, what, when and where connectivity is permitted. This ensures that only the appropriate people and devices can connect to and access appropriate applications, infrastructure and assets. Additionally, FortiNAC can enforce company policies on device patching and firmware version. FortiNAC also contains powerful network orchestration capabilities for delivering automated responses to identified threats and can perform threat containment in seconds, where a manual process could take days or weeks.
