Fortinet Unified Threat Management
Fortinet makes a wide variety of security products. Fortinet's security fabric can intelligently protect your entire network: from the endpoint to the cloud and everywhere in between, delivering industry-leading, end-to-end simplified security that won't slow you down.
We focus on the Fortinet Unified Threat Management devices, the Fortigate line, that combine the functions of firewall, switch, virus scanner, intrusion prevention and much more. Every small business needs to protect itself from and disable all threats at the edge of the network, as well as to control the actions of users with business policies that help insure productivity in a safe environment.
We have come to really appreciate the FortiWiFi products which economically integrate a WiFi access point into the firewall, making the security administration seamless. Additional access points can be added to the network for a wireless mesh environment.

Not every Fortigate model contains every one of these features. Many features depend upon the support package you purchase, and the Fortigate Elite Support provides the full range of options for your device, and is recommended. There are models available for any size business, from mom-and-pops to enterprises.
Protect the edge of the network, as well as wireless traffic and external traffic. All traffic is scanned for viruses, malware and spam as a first layer of protection. With FortiWiFi, it's easy to detect rogue wireless access points.
Comply with regulatory requirements, such as PCI-DSS and HIPAA.
Provide road warriors and today's remote workers with secure connections, both from outside to internal network resources, and also protect them by routing VPN traffic out to the Internet. They can be on the road, connect to the office with the VPN and browse the Internet, receiving the same level of protection as an office worker.
Prevent workers from wasting company time and resources connecting to social media and news sites. Block file sharing services such as BitTorrent from consuming network resources.
Administer firewall settings with a single-pane-of-glass administrative tool, and protect physical and virtual environments.
All of the Fortigate models we sell are available with built-in wireless access points.

Additional Fortinet Products
FortiNet continues to weave together and create new products to address security threats. This is known as the Security Fabric. Since this continues to change and adapt to threats, instead of listing products which may be quickly renamed or replaced, it's easier to link to their pages, which are frequently changed.
