Fortinet announced details of its new Secure Access Architecture. The Secure Access Architecture provides a broad platform of integrated, high-performance cybersecurity solutions that span from the client to the cloud and everything in between.
The company asserts that the new framework stretches Fortinet’s innovative Internal Segmentation cybersecurity strategy, enabling organizations to seamlessly segment devices and the access layers across wired and wireless networks.
“As the probable first line of defense for an organization’s infrastructure, the access layer hasn’t received the amount of attention it deserves in regards to cybersecurity,” said Michael Xie, founder, president and chief technology officer at Fortinet. “Leveraging our extensive portfolio of cutting-edge solutions and exceptional engineering capabilities, Fortinet is uniquely positioned to change that.”
