With many of today’s emerging technology, a challenge that often arises is that of migration. As we all know, today’s technology is ever moving forward and with this comes its own issues. One of the most common ones is that of transitioning older complex configurations onto new and next generation solutions. This, from a high level, can look like a relatively simple task; however, for any manager of security solutions, they will see this as one of the biggest headaches that they face.
With FortiConverter, Fortinet offers their customers a simple supported process for this. Historically, this has been a heavily manual or professional services driven engagement and there are a number of reasons for this. The primary reason is often complexity. Device configurations can often grow organically and while individual changes can be managed relatively easily, when the task is to transfer whole configurations to new platforms, the task becomes substantially more difficult. An additional challenge is that very often old and redundant information exists in configurations and these complicate the migration process. With FortiConverter, this process is massively simplified and automated while errors and redundant information are highlighted quickly, enabling a smooth transition process to the next generation platforms.
