Fortinet enhanced and expanded its
security management functionality to provide comprehensive reporting,
vulnerability scanning and other features that let IT organizations
obtain increased visibility into their networks and address
governmental regulatory compliance requirements.
Fortinet announced FortiAnalyzer 3.0, a firmware
release for the product formerly known as FortiLog, whose name
change better reflects the product line's significant increase in
functionality. Fortinet also announced two new appliances in the
FortiAnalyzer family -- the 100A and 2000 models -- targeted at
small/medium business (SMB) and large enterprise deployments,
respectively. The FortiAnalyzer 3.0 firmware will run on the new
appliance models as well as Fortinet's existing FortiLog-400 and -800
FortiAnalyzer systems are purpose built appliances that provide
valuable intelligence and simplify and centralize the collection and
analysis of log and event data from Fortinet's FortiGate security
appliances, delivering highly relevant network reports, valuable
intelligence on network usage and assistance with meeting regulatory
"Regulatory obligations have forced many of our customers to face
the time consuming and often frustrating task of trying to collect and
make sense of vast amounts of security event data from multiple devices
spread across their distributed networks," said Chris Ralph, senior
information security consultant for Global Data Systems, a Fortinet
Partner and global provider of advanced IT solutions. "Fortinet's
FortiAnalyzer systems help ease this burden by delivering a centralized
view of security activity across FortiGate security appliances --
helping to improve network security and maximize IT resources."
The new FortiAnalyzer appliances deliver scalable capacity,
performance and enhanced 3.0 firmware features, providing
administrators with a single source for gathering, correlating,
analyzing and storing event data from dispersed FortiGate security
appliances across their network security infrastructure.
The FortiAnalyzer-2000 system provides capacity and performance to
meet the varied security analyzing, logging and reporting needs of
medium to large enterprises. It includes four gigabit Ethernet ports
and the highest amount of CPU performance and RAM of all FortiAnalyzer
systems to deliver larger networks with a comprehensive view of network
usage and security information. The FortiAnalyzer-2000 system has
storage capacities of up to 2.4TB through options for up to six 120 or
400GB hot-swappable hard disk drives and supports logging for up to
700 FortiGate security appliances, depending on configuration.
The FortiAnalyzer-100A system is suited to meet the security
analyzing, logging and reporting needs for small to mid-sized
enterprises. It includes four 10/100 Ethernet ports, and supports
logging for up to 100 FortiGate security appliances. The
FortiAnalyzer-100A system has storage capacity of 120GB.
All FortiAnalyzer systems securely aggregate and analyze log data
from multiple FortiGate integrated network security appliances to
provide network administrators with a centralized graphical view of
network usage and security information. A convenient, built-in report
generator lets administrators quickly gain useful analysis on key
events to support security response, network planning, acceptable use
enforcement and compliance with governmental regulations regarding
privacy and disclosure of security breaches. FortiAnalyzer systems
accept and process a full range of log records provided by FortiGate
security appliances -- including traffic, event, virus, attack, content
filtering, and email filtering data. Additionally, they support
configurable RAID-based storage, provide syslog support for third-party
networking and security systems and include a vulnerability scanner
that is platform independent.
