The Fortinet Security Fabric

The Advantages of Fabric Approach to Security

A security fabric is an architectural approach to security that allows you to connect different security devices – including security platforms – into a single, integrated security system that spans your distributed network.

The Fortinet EDR / MDR

Advanced attacks can take just minutes, if not seconds, to compromise the endpoints. First-generation endpoint detection and response (EDR) tools simply cannot keep pace. They require manual triage and responses that are not only too slow for fast moving threats but they also generate a huge volume of indicators that burden already overstretched cyber security teams. Further, legacy EDR security tools drive up the cost of security operations and can slow network processes and capabilities, negatively impacting business.

Fortinet FortiEDR delivers advanced, real-time threat intelligence, visibility, analysis, management, and protection for endpoints both pre- and post-infection. It proactively reduces the attack surface, prevents malware infection, detects and defuses potential threats in real time, and can automate response and remediation procedures with customizable playbooks. FortiEDR helps organizations identify and stop breaches in real-time automatically and efficiently, without overwhelming security teams with a slew of false alarms or disrupting business operations.
