Bangalore: Fortinet announced FortiOS 7.0, the new updated version of the company’s flagship operating system (OS).
With over 300 new features, FortiOS 7.0 enhances the Fortinet Security Fabric and Fortinet’s ability to deliver consistent security for all networks, endpoints, and clouds.
Major updates in the Linux based FortiOS 7.0 tackle some of today’s biggest security challenges related to work from home, securing the SASE edge, and more. It covers key areas including Zero Trust Access, Security-Driven Networking, Adoptive Cloud Security, NOC/SOC, and FortiGuard Labs Threat Intelligence.
Over 300 new features added to FortiOS7.0, which expand the Fortinet Security Fabric’s ability to deliver consistent security across all networks, endpoints and clouds.
The explosion of network edges – across data center, WAN, LAN, LTE, off-net, compute, operational technology, CASB, SASE, internet, and most recently the home edge – has expanded and splintered the perimeter across the entire infrastructure.
Security that can keep pace with changes to the network and today’s performance requirements while delivering holistic visibility, data, analysis, detection, and timely coordinated response against cyberattacks requires an integrated platform approach.
FortiOS powers the Fortinet Security Fabric – a highest-performing cybersecurity platform to enable consistent and flexible security across the entire attack surface. Fortinet has more consumption models than any other vendor – physical, virtual, cloud and as-a-Service.
It has the largest product portfolio – spanning network security and SD-WAN, switching and wireless access, network access control, authentication, public and private cloud security, endpoint security, and AI-driven advanced threat protection solutions.
These models and product portfolio are all built on a common operating system that enables Fortinet to empower organisations of any size to secure and simplify their IT infrastructure. The new FortiOS 7.0 will be available at the end of Q1 2021.
“Most vendors are focused on a single slice of security, but the reality is it’s impossible to keep up with the complexity of today’s threat landscape with that approach,” said Rajesh Maurya, Regional VP India and SAARC – Fortinet.
“New innovations in FortiOS 7.0 continue Fortinet’s commitment to delivering a cybersecurity platform that expands across the entire digital attack surface to enable security that is broad, integrated, and automated to protect devices, data, and applications,” added Maurya.
