UTM Security with Fortinet

Mastering FortiOS

Traditionally, network security (firewalls to block unauthorized users, Intrusion Prevention Systems (IPS) to keep attackers out, Web filters to avoid misuse of Internet browsing, and antivirus software to block malicious programs) required separate boxes with increased cost and complexity. Unified Threat Management (UTM) makes network security less complex, cheaper, and more effective by consolidating all these components. This book explains the advantages of using UTM and how it works, presents best practices on deployment, and is a hands-on, step-by-step guide to deploying Fortinet's FortiGate in the enterprise.
