Welcome to Industry 4.0!
Organizations are rapidly adopting digital innovation (DI) initiatives to accelerate their businesses, reduce costs, improve efficiency, and provide better customer experiences. Common initiatives involve moving applications and workflows to the cloud, deploying Internet-of-Things (IoT) devices on the corporate network, and expanding the organization’s footprint to new branch locations.
With this evolving infrastructure also come security risks. Organizations must cope with growing attack surfaces, advanced threats, increased infrastructure complexity, and an expanding regulatory landscape. To accomplish their desired DI outcomes while effectively managing risks and minimizing complexities, organizations need to adopt a cybersecurity platform that provides visibility across their environment and a means to manage both security and network operations easily.
Fortinet Security Fabric solve these challenges with broad, integrated, and automated solutions that enable security-driven networking, zero-trust network access, dynamic cloud security, and artificial intelligence (AI)-driven security operations.
Fortinet Security Fabric enable multiple security technologies to work seamlessly together, across all environments and supported by a single source of threat intelligence, under a single console. This eliminates security gaps in the network and hastens responses to attacks and breaches.
Network access control, or NAC, is a zero-trust network access solution that provides users with enhanced visibility into the Internet of Things (IoT) devices on their corporate networks.
NAC provides visibility over everything connected to the network, as well as the ability to control those devices and users, including dynamic, automated responses. It plays a role in strengthening overall network security infrastructure.
A properly functioning solution can deny access to noncompliant users or devices, place them in quarantine, or restrict access to a small number of network resources, separated from the rest of the network. NAC generally supports the following:
- Authentication and authorization of users and devices
- User and device profiling
- Denial of unsecured devices
- Quarantine of unsecured devices
- Restricting access to unsecured devices
- Policy lifecycle management
- Overall security posture assessment
- Incident response through policy enforcement
- Guest networking access
FortiNAC is Fortinet’s network access control solution that enhances the Security Fabric with visibility, control, and automated response for everything that connects to the network.

Simple Network Deployment
The Power over Ethernet (PoE) capability enables simple installation of cameras, sensors and wireless access points in the network, with power and data delivered over the same network cable. There is no need to contract electricians to install power for your PoE devices, reducing your overall network TCO.
Get integrated security, performance, and availability monitoring in one application with Fortinet’s powerful SIEM (Security Information & Event Management) with User and Entity Behavior Analytics (UEBA).
FortiSIEM Delivers Next-Generation SIEM Capabilities
FortiSIEM brings together visibility, correlation, automated response, and remediation in a single, scalable solution. It reduces the complexity of managing network and security operations to effectively free resources, improve breach detection, and even prevent breaches.
What’s more is that FortiSIEM’s architecture enables unified data collection and analytics from diverse information sources including logs, performance metrics, security alerts, and configuration changes. FortiSIEM combines the analytics traditionally monitored in separate silos of the security operations center (SOC) and network operations center (NOC) for a more holistic view of the security and availability of the business.
In addition, FortiSIEM UEBA leverages machine learning and statistical methodologies to baseline normal behavior and incorporate real-time, actionable insights into anomalous user behavior regarding business-critical data. By combining telemetry that is pulled from endpoint sensors, network device flows, server and applications logs, and cloud APIs, FortiSIEM is able to build comprehensive profiles of users, peer groups, endpoints, applications, files, and networks. FortiSIEM UEBA behavioral anomaly detection is a low-overhead but high-fidelity way to gain visibility of end-to-end activity, from endpoints, to on-premises servers and network activity, to cloud applications.
FortiSIEM’s lightweight UEBA agent captures high-fidelity data, on- and off-network, by leveraging a five-factor telemetry model. To understand the behavior of users, it uses information from the following:
