Latest release of FortiOS delivers over 300 new innovations across the Fortinet Security Fabric for protection from IoT to the edge, network core and to multi-clouds.
Fortinet, a global leader in broad, integrated and automated cybersecurity solutions, has announced the release of the latest version of its flagship operating system, FortiOS 6.2, at its global customer and partner conference Accelerate 19.
This FortiOS 6.2 release continues the evolution of the Fortinet Security Fabric with over 300 new innovations that span Fortinet’s products and solutions portfolio, enabling organisations to achieve a security-driven network required for the edge and multi-cloud environments created by Digital Transformation.
“The ongoing Digital Transformation means the edge – not just the cloud – is increasingly important for business,” said Ken Xie, founder, chairman of the board and CEO at Fortinet.
“The biggest challenge will be securing the exponential growth of the digital attack surface due to the rapid expansion of edge devices. Because business success is measured in microseconds, organisations cannot afford to trade performance for protection.
“Instead, security needs to occur at the speed of business everywhere, even at the edge. To achieve this, organisations must adopt a fabric-based approach to security that goes beyond isolated security devices and platforms to cover the whole network at the same time, even when it changes. This requires protection that is broad, integrated and automated.”
