Rapid Response with FortiSOAR
Security Operations teams face an ongoing challenge of balancing their need to adapt to the evolving threat landscape and addressing existing operational complexities. Countering the sophistication of today’s attackers has required organizations to deploy a multitude of technologies. However, this approach often leads to a complex multivendor infrastructure that lacks seamless coordination or integration. The result is a fragmented threat response due to countless lengthy manual workflows, decentralized processes, and the inability to truly streamline team collaboration efforts – creating further friction for organizations already battling alert volume and cybersecurity talent shortages. And these slowed response times and operational difficulties ultimately impact security operations center (SOC) teams and reduce mean-time-to-respond. 

FortiSOAR enables enterprises at higher stages of maturity to harmonize team collaboration, visibility, and SOC automation for improved security efficiency. SOC teams are not only able to streamline and accelerate their incident response processes, but also reduce their mean-time-to-respond, thereby reducing the impact of a security incident. 

Join us to learn how customers utilize FortiSOAR to remedy the complexities in many mature SOC environments, discover what’s new in FortiSOAR 7.0, and see how you can ensure rapid response while optimizing your security operations. 

 

Applying Advanced Threat Analytics for Earlier Threat Detection
Waiting for detectable threats to become detected incidents before launching an appropriate response is a losing proposition. Fortinet provides the analytical tools and techniques needed to uncover even the most sophisticated threats early in the attack chain, dramatically reducing their dwell time they are given – even within today’s complex environments.

 

Fully-Automatable XDR Across the Security Fabric
According to Gartner, 80% of organization currently have or plan to actively consolidate their security vendors.

Simplify NOC/SOC with Security Fabric Automation
Increasingly complex and fragmented infrastructures continue to enable the rise in cyber threats and network outages. Too many point products deployed by most enterprises operate in isolated silos, with individual consoles and narrow automation frameworks that are only relevant for that one solution. Subsequently, network operations (NetOps) and Security Operations (SecOps) teams rarely have clear and consistent insight into their policies and configurations, or visibility across their own infrastructure. 

A unified console with network-security automation and orchestration capabilities can easily eliminate the complexity challenge for NetOps/SecOps teams. The Fortinet Fabric NOC/SOC solution helps address this challenge, enabling Operations to be proactive rather than reactive through the unified management and analytics that are part of the Fortinet Security Fabric.  

In this session, attendees will learn how customers and partners are leveraging FortiManager/FortiAnalyzer today, what’s new in FortiManager 7.0/FortiAnalyzer 7.0, and how we help with an Integrated NOC/SOC.

Expanding Visibility Beyond the Network: Leveraging FortiMonitor
In today’s remote workforce, it’s become critical for organizations to understand complex IT environments that modern applications and services run on. Network Operations Center (NOC) teams rely on the insights that their infrastructure monitoring platforms provide in order to track availability, performance, security and quality of an application. These become crucial factors that impact and dictate the end-user experience.  

As enterprise and service providers attempt to monitor these various aspects—in and outside of their network—it becomes increasingly difficult to consolidate the products they use. Traditionally, monitoring products are segmented by a particular element of insight, such as security or network traffic. This results in fragmented monitoring efforts, repetitive manual workflows, decentralized operations and lack of streamlined team collaboration—all key factors that limit overall IT practitioner’s visibility internal and external to the network. 

In this session, learn about Fortinet’s new Network Performance Monitoring (NPMD) and Digital Experience Monitoring (DEM) solution, FortiMonitor. Discover how it can be leveraged for monitoring the full end-to-end user experience, unifying operations, deep analysis in both network health metrics and application performance.
