"Fortinet's Open Fabric Ecosystem allows participating partners from an array of industries to seamlessly integrate their solutions with the Security Fabric"
Open Source: A disruptive technology
As organizations face the rapidly expanding digital attack surface, customers increasingly seek to achieve an integrated security approach. Various IT solutions working in isolation are not enough to address the critical gaps that contribute to increased security risks. Lack of integration and automation across products hinders visibility, making life very complicated for IT and security departments. Enterprise deployments can often be comprised of 30+ point products, mostly from different security vendors. These independent and often isolated systems may not share threat intelligence or take coordinated security policy actions to respond to fast-moving cyberthreats, resulting in greatly reduced overall security effectiveness.
The Fortinet Security Fabric has an architectural approach to security designed to connect traditionally disparate security solutions into a unified framework, allowing them to dynamically adapt to the evolving IT Infrastructure in order to defend its rapidly changing attack surface. Fortinet’s Open Fabric Ecosystem allows participating partners from an array of industries to seamlessly integrate their solutions with the Security Fabric, thus extending the benefits of the Security Fabric through pre-validated and documented joint solutions with advanced security. The Fortinet Security Fabric enables organizations to achieve an integrated platform approach for complete visibility and comprehensive security without compromise across every network segment and device, and across hardware, virtual and cloud environments.
Advantages of Open Source
With over 400 technology integrations, Fortinet’s Open Fabric Ecosystem is one of the largest cybersecurity ecosystems in the industry. The ecosystem is comprised of Fabric-Ready technology alliance partners, collaborations with threat sharing organizations and other technology integrations, delivering comprehensive end to end security. These ecosystem integrations enable threat intelligence sharing to detect, monitor, block, and remediate attacks across the entire attack surface, ensuring rapid and coordinated policy enforcement. Fortinet’s Fabric-Ready Partner Program, launched in 2016, plays a key role in the Open Fabric Ecosystem. The Fortinet Fabric-Ready Partner Program acts as the enabler and brings together the community of technology alliance partners to deliver powerful complementary solutions in the Open Fabric Ecosystem. Partners are provided with program infrastructure, resources, and tools to integrate with the Security Fabric, develop joint solutions, and become part of the ecosystem. Fortinet’s open ecosystem approach extends the capabilities of the Security Fabric to the Fabric-Ready partner solutions and enables integration of new solutions into the Fabric.
Open Source & organizational strategy
Customers can leverage a wide array of integrated ecosystem solutions to best fit and secure their infrastructure while preserving their existing security investments. Through threat intelligence sharing and coordinated policy enforcement across products, ecosystem solutions provide customers with effective security. Pre-validation of ecosystem solutions enables customers to make purchase decisions with more confidence and gain faster time to deployment with reduced systems integrations costs. Ecosystem solutions extend the benefits of the Security Fabric, and are a testament to the openness of the Security Fabric and the inclusive philosophy of the Fabric-Ready Partner Program.
