Fortinet’s New Cloud-Managed Wireless LAN Solution Delivers Wi-Fi Access with an Emphasis on Management Simplicity and High-Performance Security for Wireless Networks and Mobile Devices
Last August 11, 2015, Fortinet has announced enhancements to its cloud-based FortiCloud management system and a new line of cloud-managed Wireless Access Points (APs), following up on its strategic investments and momentum in the secure wireless networking market, which includes its recent acquisition of Meru Networks. Fortinet’s “FortiAP-S series” wireless LAN (WLAN) APs are the most secure cloud-managed enterprise Wi-Fi products on the market, featuring Fortinet’s legendary cybersecurity technology running directly on the AP and receiving the latest security updates from Fortinet’s industry-leading FortiGuard Labs Threat Intelligence services team. The cloud was deemed to be one of the least secure platforms to manage your enterprise wireless LAN on, but through the “FortiAP-S series”, organizations need no longer be alarmed.
Fortinet’s new FortiAP-S series combines the flexibility of Cloud Management, the latest generation of Wireless Access Point technology and the proven security of FortiGuard, all forming a Secure Wireless architecture for Enterprise Access Networks. We can now apply mobile-specific security policies and updates such as application control and virus scanning directly to the Wireless Access Points, giving the customer a layer of perimeter defense for BYOD devices.
With the explosion of BYOD in the enterprise, and the subsequent mission-criticality of mobile devices and applications, organizations have struggled to balance the concerns around providing pervasive, easily managed WiFi coverage with WLAN security and compliance. Fortinet’s new FortiAP-S series of access points integrates the simplicity of cloud-based WLAN management with the cybersecurity protection that Fortinet is known for.
We’ve worked closely with Fortinet to deliver best-in-class and business enabling wireless solutions that are tailored to meet the unique needs of each of our customers. We’re excited for the launch of the FortiAP-S series of wireless access points and the prospect of providing our customers with secure wireless solutions, managed completely in the cloud.
