Enterprise Firewalls and Intrusion Prevention Systems (IPS)

Get granular inspection capabilities for protection against attacks and malware.

Next generation firewalls give organizations more comprehensive threat protection for their enterprises, including intrusion prevention, web filtering, anti-malware and application control.

Next generation firewalls (NGFWs) analyze traffic for a variety of known and potential threats and often include integrated advanced threat protection capabilities. NGFWs are aware of the overall context of network traffic and act accordingly. Application, user identity, and content awareness, all play into their function, as do performance characteristics that support on-the-fly decryption and encryption and advanced threat intelligence.

Next generation firewalls (NGFWs)



FortiGate Next-Generation Firewall technology delivers content and network protection by combining stateful inspection with a comprehensive suite of powerful security features. Application control, antivirus, intrusion prevention system (IPS) technology, web filtering, and virtual private network (VPN) along with advanced features such as an extreme threat database, vulnerability management, and flow-based inspection work in concert to identify and mitigate complex security threats.

Deploy FortiGate-VM on AWS as a NGFW and VPN Gateway. Refer to the diagram to see how it works.

Fortinet secures icare’s applications in Amazon Web Services

When icare, one of the largest insurers in Australia, made their strategic decision to migrate their mission critical and customer facing applications into the cloud, they knew they had to provide the levels of security and accessibility that would give their customers, staff, and contractors complete peace of mind.

To ensure that they could deliver protection from cyber threats and a scalable platform for planned growth, they selected cloud services provider AWS to host their core insurance platform and Fortinet’s FortiGate Next Generation Firewall for superior threat protection.

The solution deployed included FortiGate AWS firewalls for next generation gateway protection at the perimeter and internal segmentation within each Availability Zone, FortiManager for ‘single pane-of-glass’ dashboard management, FortiAnalyzer for forensic reporting and performance analytics, and FortiToken for secure remote access.

David Johnston's quote

We have opted for a SAAS model for our cloud-based operations, one that provides low-overhead solutions in a secure environment. The combination of AWS and Fortinet has given us what we needed. As a result, we can offer our essential insurance and care services to the people and businesses of New South Wales in a secure and cost-effective manner.
