Regional Vice President, India & SAARC - Fortinet



Digital transformation has changed networks thoroughly and rapidly that traditional security tools can no longer provide the consistent security that networks require. Fortinet’s Security-driven Networking is defining a new, third generation of security solutions and strategies designed to meet the security and networking demands of today’s highly dynamic and hybrid networks. 


Fortinet uniquely delivers an effective security platform with the Fortinet Security Fabric built around three critical principles -


Broad –With data and workloads crossing between a variety of device form factors and network ecosystems, platforms need to provide a holistic view into devices, traffic, applications and events, while also stopping threats.


Integrated – The integration of tools and systems using open standards, common operating systems and unified management platforms enables the sharing and correlation of real-time threat intelligence.


Automated – Like today’s digital business, cybercrime happens at digital speeds. Security systems need to automatically provide continuous assessment and then provide an immediate, coordinated response of detected threats.



Fortinet’s Security-driven Networking strategy tightly integrates an organization’s network infrastructure and security architecture, enabling the network to scale and change without compromising security. This next generation approach is essential for effectively defending today’s highly dynamic environments by weaving security deep into the network itself.


Fortinet is armed with a broad portfolio of integrated solutions, tools, and platforms available in any form factor, and solutions designed to operate natively in and between any networked environments. This not only enables us to better meet the dynamic and expanding needs of customers – it also enhances our ability to covert a single opportunity to a long-term relationship. 



The magnitude of the remote working wave took even the most foresighted of CISOs by surprise. The fact is remote working infrastructures and policies were never designed to face the entire planet working from home. Adding to this the sophistication of the threat landscape has extended to new classes of attacks that aim at inflicting damages while remaining silent. They are targeting IT devices and networks that are critical for business continuity. With so many users now accessing resources from home, visibility into what is happening to workloads, who is accessing them, and analysis of their activity has become more important than ever.


There is a major emphasis on the concept of Zero-Trust Network Access because CISOs want to know exactly who and what is on their network as employees continue to work remotely. ZTNA is a very strong concept, and a necessary approach as more and more business-critical processes are becoming fully digital. Whether the organization has a Fortinet Security Fabric in place or another security infrastructure, Fortinet ZTNA solutions for user identity and access management provide robust security for the Fortinet Security Fabric.


As applications proliferate and the number of connected devices expands the perimeter, billions of new edges are being created that have to be managed and protected. In addition, organizations are facing increased sophistication of attacks targeting the expanding digital infrastructure, including some being driven by artificial intelligence and machine learning. To effectively secure their distributed networks, organizations have to shift from protecting just security perimeters to protecting the data spread across their new network edges, users, systems, devices, and critical applications. Only a cybersecurity platform designed to provide comprehensive visibility and protection across the entire attack surface–including devices, users, mobile endpoints, multi-cloud environments, and SaaS infrastructures will be able to secure today’s rapidly evolving networks driven by digital innovation.


Securing Hyperscale Networks

Fortinet has spent years developing custom Security Processing Units (SPUs), such as its latest NP7 Network Processor, to enable organizations to deploy true, enterprise-class security in even their most demanding environments. The NP7 can inspect encrypted traffic about twenty times faster than devices that rely on off-the-shelf CPUs – and it delivers comparable performance acceleration across all critical security functions, including firewall, threat protection, connections per second, concurrent connections, and IPSec VPN. Its advanced Content Processors are designed to support the processor-intensive convergence of security and networking required by Security-Driven Networking – which is fundamental to protecting the next generation of highly dynamic networks
