Securing Remote Sites
Large organizations wanting to provide secure access to remote teleworkers, retail outlets, and branch offices are facing an evolved dilemma: while granting access to these remote sites has become relatively easy, ensuring the remote sites are secure by remotely deploying numerous security devices and software is unfeasible. In order to secure both the data in transit and the remote networks from which data originates, a single device uniting firewall, VPN, intrusion prevention, Web filtering, antivirus, and antispyware specifically designed for remote branch offices, retail outlets, and telecommuters is required.
Retail Outlets and Branch Offices
Dedicated IPSec VPN tunnels have become a standard method of providing access and conveying real time inventory and sales information to corporate headquarters. Once connected, these networks can introduce malware and trojans acquired by their endpoints if the remote network is not adequately protected. Multiple security enforcement technologies such as firewall, intrusion prevention, and antivirus/antimalware must be deployed in order to maintain compliance with PCI, HIPPA, and GLBA regulations. With multiple internal security ports, the FortiGate-30B and FortiWiFi-30B offer complete network security protection and dedicated VPN access in a single device that can be provisioned and managed from anywhere in the world.
Security concerns similar to that of the retail or branch offices exist for remote teleworkers as well. Unprotected home networks can introduce a barrage of threats to the distributed network. Remotely deploying multiple devices and software solutions at teleworker sites creates a deployment and maintenance nightmare—for both IT administrators and teleworkers. Security risks are compounded with teleworker network usage by other family members, who must be kept separate from work-related access. The FortiGate-30B and FortiWiFi-30B offer a complete solution that provides total network protection for the teleworker’s entire network, while simultaneously offering dedicated VPN access to corporate resources. Multiple internal security ports support multiple devices on the internal interface, and authentication techniques ensure that only the teleworker’s endpoint is allowed access to corporate resources.
