Fortinet uncovers security risks in Asia Pacific

Anuradha Shukla | Feb. 24, 2016
Launches Cyber Threat Assessment Program (CTAP) in the region.

Fortinet is providing Asia Pacific organisations with a detailed look into the type and amount of cyber threats posing risks to their networks.

The high-performance cyber security solutions provider has unveiled its new Cyber Threat Assessment Program (CTAP) to this end.

CTAP is part of a broader effort by Fortinet and its FortiGuard Labs threat research team to provide customers greater insight into dynamically changing cyber risks that threaten their businesses.

Fortinet has collaborated with several partners to offer its threat assessment program to organisations free-of-charge.

"In the past, it was much easier for firewalls to detect significant threats to the network, because traffic could be classified based on specific protocols, and hackers' approaches were not as sophisticated," said John Maddison, senior vice president of Products & Solutions for Fortinet. "A growing number of network threats today are designed to avoid detection by bypassing traditional firewalls with ease. Our new CTAP program is specifically designed to quickly detect the threats other solutions are not intercepting to help customers significantly increase protection, while decreasing business risks."

Next generation firewall

The FortiGate high-performance next generation firewall will be installed within the customer or prospect network.

This firewall will monitor the application traffic traversing the network for intrusions, malware and malicious applications that could cause massive risk to the network.

Attackers will therefore have access to a company's most sensitive files and database information.

A detailed risk assessment report will be generated at the end of the data collection period by using FortiAnalyzer.
