“Building a reputation can take many years, but it only takes ONE significant attack on data to bring it back to square one.”

Brian Forster – VP Marketing, Fortinet

fortexx & Fortinet

Fortinet is the leading provider of comprehensive network security products with more certifications from independent labs and more deployed products worldwide than its next 3 competitors combined. Their products are powered by proprietary ASIC chips that are built for specific purposes such as encryption and threat detection. fortexx consulting works with Fortinet to provide a no-charge Cyber Threat Assessment to potential customers by deploying their leading Fortigate firewalls on-site at clients at no charge to collect all network traffic for up to 7 days. The objective of this assessment is to to quickly gain insights into:

  • Security and Threat Prevention – which application vulnerabilities are attacking your network, which malware/botnets were detected, and which devices are “at risk” – for firewall assessment and security breach probability.
  • User Productivity – which peer-to-peer, social media, instant messaging, and other apps are running – for application visibility control.
  • Network Utilization and Performance – what are your throughput, session, and bandwidth usage requirements during peak hours—network utilization and monitoring tests for performance optimization.

We then use this data to create a comprehensive Fortinet Cyber Threat Assessment Report which we review with you in person to define follow-up steps and develop an action plan for dealing with identified vulnerabilities.
