At Vodat, we take a holistic view of cybersecurity, ensuring our solutions protect our clients from cyberattacks, unauthorised access, or data damage or loss. Our cybersecurity services incorporate procedural, technological, architectural and even user educational security. There are many categories of cybersecurity, and they are all critical. A single breach in security can have far-reaching consequences for a business, and the effect can be devastating.
Our Fortinet network security solution is the core of our security fabric, enabling advanced security throughout your business. This includes broad protection and visibility, segmentation orchestration (running through branch, core, data centre and cloud), the ability to apply advanced threat protection anywhere on your network and security audit best practice. We achieve this with the following solutions:
- Next-generation firewall (NGFW)
- Intrusion prevention systems (IPS)
- Software-defined WAN (SD-WAN)
- Secure web gateway (SWG)
The Fortinet multi-cloud security solution we use provides superior visibility, protection and control across the expanded attack surface. This security fabric-centric approach to cloud security enables single-pane-of-glass visibility across multiple private clouds, public clouds, and SaaS applications.
The huge increase in IoT devices and their lack of cybersecurity features presents tremendous opportunities for hackers and significant challenges for organisations. This expanding IoT attack surface can’t be protected with point products or even platform solutions that lack visibility and network-wide integration. However, our Fortinet IoT security solution will deliver all the protection you need. It achieves this using an integrated solution that delivers visibility, segmentation, and protection throughout the infrastructure, from IoT to the cloud.
Web App Security
Web apps are seen as a soft target by hackers, giving them relatively easy access to their victim’s network. The Web app cybersecurity solution we use, however, stops hackers in their tracks. Our clients benefit from the only web app security product that can detect advanced persistent threats (APTs) to web apps; it shares attack data with associated firewalls and sandboxes to ensure your web apps are secure.
Our multi-layered Fortinet email security system provides the most comprehensive email security, spam and virus filtering protection available. It will protect you from email viruses, spam, phishing, email flooding, directory harvest attacks and denial of service attacks. We deliver simple, secure administration that is entirely web-based, with no software to install. Users can define settings that allow/deny senders, domains, and IPs for any email to the domain. And our advanced policy options allow for sophisticated rule management, including support for regular expressions.
Endpoints are frequently the target of initial compromise or cyberattack. A recent Fortinet study found that 30% of breaches involved malware being installed at endpoints. Our Fortinet endpoint security solution, Forticlient, strengthens endpoint security through integrated visibility, control, and proactive defence. With the ability to discover, monitor and assess endpoint risks, you can ensure endpoint compliance, mitigate risk and reduce exposure.
Conventional Wi-Fi and switching solutions are unable to address the network, application and device management requirements demanded by modern businesses. Companies are deploying more mobile devices and expect smooth and secure connectivity, without added complexity for IT departments. The Fortinet unified access solution we deploy provides comprehensive security on the LAN infrastructure, delivering the most flexible cybersecurity platform with end-to-end enforcement.
Security teams globally are being challenged with reduced resources while being expected to do more, with more complex networks and growing numbers of alerts and multiple systems. We deploy four solutions to greatly simplify network management and analytics: FortiAnalyzer, FortiCloud, FortiManager and FortiSIEM. More information on these cybersecurity solutions can be found on the Fortinet Management Analytics page.
As cybersecurity technology, infrastructure and services evolve, our market-leading mobile security products continue to provide evolutionary, state-of-the-art security for multiple LTE, LTE-A and 5G use cases.
What are the main cybersecurity challenges facing businesses?
Even with increased spending on cybersecurity, organisations’ networks are still constantly breached. That’s because there are a daunting number of challenges that need to be addressed to enable successful cybersecurity. These include:
- Network performance slowdowns (including disruptions and shutdowns);
- Lack of visibility into entire network;
- Complexity: too many disparate products to manage;
- Shortage of IT professionals;
- Growing attack surface/borderless networks; and
- Increasingly sophisticated cyber criminals and constantly evolving threats.
How can today’s security requirements be addressed?
High-performance appliances and top-rated threat protection services that cover all attack surfaces are key to successfully protecting networks, but there is much more to it than that. Effective cybersecurity requires planning, diligence, and coordination between different IT departments and companies. The security technologies must also communicate to share intelligence and coordinate their responses to threats automatically, for faster response.
Security must be easy to manage, requiring minimal resources. And, the entire network must be visible to IT security staff to enable them to find any threats that may have entered the network and remain undetected.
Essentially, to protect an organisation’s entire attack surface, a layered approach with security solutions for all areas of the network is required: data centre, application, cloud, access, endpoint, and email must all work in unison as an integrated and collaborative security fabric. This eliminates the gaps in security and visibility that occur when disparate security products are bolted on to a network.
