FortiGate Firewalls: Protect Your Network from Exploits and Encrypted Malware

The evolution of cyber-attacks is accelerating, so surely you have asked yourself how to deal with cyber threats in such a changing and diverse environment? One of the most recommended solutions is to pay more attention to your network traffic management strategies to better analyze system vulnerabilities.

Don’t forget that your databases, file services, and directories are often a favorite target for hackers.

In addition to backups, antivirus, authentication mechanisms and cryptography, you should not dispense with a next-generation firewall, because of its effectiveness in identifying and controlling traffic, based on the application itself rather than just the port and protocol.

For a more comprehensive protection of your network, we suggest Fortinet’s FortiGate mid-range next-generation Firewalls.
