Fortinet Security Fabric
Engineered for Simple, Cost-effective Security Across Your Growing Business
A successful small business needs to focus on two primary themes—growth and a shrewd oversight of cash flow. A successful security breach can instantly derail both of these, and 43% of attacks target SMBs.1 With the rapid adoption of new technologies and instantaneous data-sharing in and out of your traditional networking perimeters, breaches are easier than ever and can impede critical productivity cycles and/or result in sensitive data being lost and your customers’ trust coming into question.
At Fortinet, we strive to ensure you are able to protect what you have worked so hard to build and enable you to keep growing through intelligent security designed to maximize your limited resources.
Improving Security for Growing Businesses
Technology both enables our productivity and spreads the attack surface, increasing the challenge of ensuring both our business’s and customers’ data is protected. Looking across the security landscape, there are lots of options and closer inspection regularly finds critical holes in a vendor’s offerings, such as:
- Limited solutions forcing you to purchase from multiple vendors to protect everything
- Confusing implementation and management that result in ineffective protection
- Expensive solutions that claim to protect everything and leave no budget for anything else
The Fortinet Security Fabric is designed to scale as your business grows and gives you the ability to build an enterprise-grade security platform that gives you:
- Broad coverage and visibility of the entire digital attack surface to better manage risk
- Integrated solutions that reduce the complexity of understanding and supporting multiple vendor point products
- Automated workflows to increase the speed of operations and reduce management and response times
And unlike others, Fortinet has always believed that enterprise-grade security should be affordable and widely available. In both our engineering and our pricing, we aim to protect your growing business throughout and across all your digital initiatives.

Your growing business demands technologies that enable your employees to move faster and give your customers experiences they will love, but supervising disparate security devices and management portals quickly becomes cumbersome and inevitably leads to gaps in protection. To perform at your best, you need your network up and running fast, an easy way to control what’s happening and to make sure it’s safe.
Quickly Expand Your Network Safely
The Fortinet Secure Access solution effortlessly extends security policies from the FortiGate to attached FortiSwitches and accompanying devices such as FortiAPs and FortiExtenders, for wireless access and LTE coverage, respectively.
Proprietary engineering within the FortiOS operating systems, known as FortiLink, allows our FortiGates to also manage any FortiSwitch, FortiAP, or FortiExtender, granting a near plug-and-play experience for administrators looking to quickly expand their network while maintaining security across wired and wireless devices and providing a single-pane-of-glass management experience.
In addition, two-factor authentication can be added with FortiToken Cloud for enhanced credential security of any user attempting to enter the network.

Management and Analytics:
While the opportunity for increased revenue through growth and expansion is appealing, network administrators must ensure the network can support the organization’s progress. Growing quickly means more users, devices, and technology to manage. Understanding how security and understanding how security all fits together and being able to handle changes easily—especially if the devices were not intended to be managed as a whole—becomes more difficult as staff must correlate data using each vendor’s tools.
