Fortinet, a provider of unified threat management solutions, has announced that Community Health Resources has deployed a Fortinet FortiGate? multi-threat security appliance to help secure its network from malicious internet attacks.
Community Health Resources (CHR) initially planned to deploy the FortiGate appliance for firewall protection, replacing an underperforming competitive solution. Upon seeing the strength of the Fortinet firewall, the agency decided to implement additional Fortinet security functions including antivirus, intrusion prevention (IPS) and web filtering protection while maintaining a low total cost of ownership and ease of management.
Fortinet’s FortiGate-400A multi-threat security solution will help to provide firewall, antivirus, IPS and web filtering protection at CHR’s Windsor, Conn. headquarters. CHR’s ability to add advanced network security functions to its initial firewall requirements is due to Fortinet’s integrated and scalable multi-threat security solution.
Without having to deploy new point products, CHR easily added security functionalities to its network and thereby lowered the total cost of ownership.
Fortinet provides ASIC-accelerated security appliances, which are used by enterprises and service providers to enhance and consolidate their security needs while reducing total operating costs. Fortinet solutions were built from the ground up to integrate multiple levels of security protection – including firewall, antivirus, intrusion prevention, VPN, Web filtering, spyware prevention and anti-spam – designed to help customers protect against network and content level threats.
Delivered via its flagship FortiGate family of appliances, Fortinet provides a flexible and extensible platform of security applications and services that enable customers to deploy and centrally manage the same broad level of protection at remote locations as they have for headquarters and data center environments.
