Fortinet’s Open Fabric Ecosystem reaches more than 400 integrations


Fortinet® Fortinet Security Fabric has reached more than 400 technology integrations in its Open Fabric Ecosystem. These integrations are made possible through Fortinet’s Fabric-Ready Partner Program, made up of partnerships with organisations to offer pre-validated solutions.

Many organisations using multiple vendors grapple with IT solutions working in isolation, leading to critical gaps that increase security risks. In fact, nearly two-thirds of enterprises in EMA’s Network Management Megatrends 2020 report indicated they use between four and 10 network management tools.

Fortinet helps organisations consolidate their solutions through the Security Fabric – an open architecture and integrated platform for complete visibility and comprehensive security across every network segment and device, whether it is hardware, virtual or cloud-based. Through Fortinet’s Fabric Ecosystem, the Security Fabric has more than 400 integrations, unifying an array of solutions that communicate and work together to detect, monitor, block, and remediate attacks across the entire attack surface.
