The Unified Access Layer
Summary
Legacy security
Multiple point solutions are inefficient with a high total cost of ownership
Leave gaps in the network security posture
Multi-party UTM offer similar problems with very little improvement in performance
Fortinet
Fortinet offers a different approach with purpose built, accelerated hardware
High performance at a low price
Complimentary Fortinet technologies provide a ‘unified access layer’ for secure connectivity
regardless of location or network type
