recent analyst research. 2023 opportunity shown.
First-generation network security (stateful firewalls) focused on securing the connection. Led by Fortinet, a second generation of
network security, next-generation firewalls and UTMs, expanded inspection to the application and content. The emergence of
cloud, IoT, and mobile is driving the need for a third generation of network security to protect the rapidly expanding attack surface.
Fortinet’s high-performance FortiGate firewalls—powered by our purpose-built OS, security processors,
and threat intelligence from FortiGuard Labs—provide consolidated, advanced security and deep visibility
that protects the network from known and unknown threats.
FortiOS is the foundation of the Fortinet Security Fabric, consolidating many technologies and use cases into a simplified, single policy
and management framework. FortiOS provides customers with superior protection, deeper visibility and control, reduced complexity, and
greater operational efficiency across their entire attack surface.
