There are diverse applications for Fortinet’s unified FortiCloud platform. Below are five common use-cases outlining the key advantages in employing FortiCloud to protect and secure your on-premise and Cloud network environments.
Cloud-Based Application Protection
Organizations are increasingly taking a “Cloud-only” approach to developing and using applications. Protect Cloud-based applications, data, and services with Security as a Service (SaaS). The FortiCloud Offering Suite includes FortiWeb Cloud for web application protection, FortiMail Cloud for email protection, FortiCWP to identify configuration errors, suspicious user activity, storage protection and compliance, and FortiCASB for securing SaaS applications such as Microsoft 365 or Salesforce.

- Manage Security Services – Multi-tenant support enables managed service providers to manage their customers’ security posture through FortiCloud
- Easy central management for small and medium businesses who seek to avoid the expense and maintenance of on-premise management solutions
Unified account management provides key authentication elements that allow access to multiple services with a single account across various Fortinet portals and services. The key objective of unified account management provides secure access to all the services and resources to enable the right person the right access at the right time, without compromising on security. This feature allows login with FortiCloud account from any portal or service and allows access to other portals seamlessly with built-in authorization roles specific to each portal or service.
FortiCloud hosts many Fortinet Cloud portals and services under a single brand. Products are increasingly interlaced with more than one Cloud service. Complimented by unified account and single sign-on, FortiCloud portal selector is accessible from the FortiCloud top bar, providing easy navigation between the FortiCloud portals and is consistently available from all the FortiCloud portals. Managed centrally, FortiCloud portal selector includes support, settings, Cloud management, and service portals.
As the portfolio of assets grow in numbers, managing assets gets complex and often requires additional effort to arrange, filter, and organize them. Asset Management portal gives the ability to view, organize, and manage Fortinet products and services using the Assets and Account Services views. Assets can be searched by serial number, contract, or license number. Products and services can be registered easily to access complete information including entitlement, location, threat statistics, tickets, enabled Cloud services, license, and keys all in one place. Asset Folders help organize large number of assets into multi-depth folder hierarchies. Asset manager also provides dedicated and filtered views for expired units, decommissioned units on the registered products, and notifications on the assets.
