Fortinet Details Updates to Their Cybersecurity Operating System

18th February 2016 | By Mouseworld Now Correspondent |

Fortinet-logoBangalore, India, February 18, 2016 – Fortinet, a leading provider of high-performance cybersecurity solutions, today announced updates to their FortiOS cybersecurity operating system. FortiOS 5.4 offers new features that enable customers to deploy internal network segmentation for containment and defense against advanced threats.

One Cybersecurity Operating System for the Entire Attack Cycle
Gartner predicts “that 6.4 billion connected things will be in use worldwide in 2016, up 30% from 2015, and reach 20.8 billion by 2020,”1 exponentially expanding the attack surface and security challenges faced by enterprises. FortiOS removes the complexity of defending against advanced threats. With the latest configuration, analytic capabilities and assisted one-click actions in FortiOS 5.4, enterprises can implement internal segmentation firewalls (ISFW) and Secure Access Architectures to move beyond traditional perimeter defense to stronger layered security strategies.

“Organizations are facing an increasingly hostile threat landscape with new and highly sophisticated threats emerging every day. Combating these attacks requires security solutions that can deliver true network segmentation without compromising network performance,” said Michael Xie, founder, president and CTO of Fortinet. “FortiOS 5.4 delivers new features that empower organizations to implement internal segmentation strategies that isolate and remediate malware should it make it past the perimeter.”

FortiOS 5.4 Introduces New FortiGuard Mobile Security Services
FortiOS 5.4 introduces a new Mobile Malware subscription service from FortiGuard Labs. The rise in mobile device usage within the enterprise shows no signs of slowing down and has made these devices a prime target for cyber criminals. Leveraging FortiGuard Labs’ threat intelligence, FortiOS receives a constant feed of mobile-specific intelligence to deliver automated protection against emerging threats that target platforms like Android, iOS and Windows.

FortiOS version 5.4 is available immediately. Current customers can update their products manually or reach out to their Fortinet customer service representative.
