Fortinet (NASDAQ:FTNT), a global leader in cybersecurity solutions announced at the RSA Conference 2018 the industry’s first pupose-built NOC-SOC solution that bridges workflows, analysis and automated response across operational and security process.
As quoted in the press release:
Building on the Fortinet Security Fabric architecture, Fortinet has combined the latest capabilities of FortiManager 6.0, FortiAnalyzer 6.0 and FortiSIEM 5.0 to offer a unique NOC-SOC management and analytics solution.
NOC-SOC approach to management enables enhanced security operations visibility with a new graphical Security Fabric topology view and extensions into both private and public cloud environments, with dynamic policy objects.
New Security Rating feature combines analytics from FortiGate, FortiAnalyzer and FortiManager with threat intelligence services from FortiGuard to provide enterprises with a quantifiable security posture. Rating includes expanded audit rules, risk scoring and industry benchmarking with customized auditing based on network environments.
New Incident Response (IR) tracking capabilities allow users to automate responses across silos based either on predefined triggers (system events, threat alerts, user and device status) or through direct ServiceNow IT Service Management (ITSM) integration.
“Both security and IT teams are challenged by resource constraints, yet workloads and the rate of cyber threats continue to rise in scope and complexity,” said John Maddison, senior vice president of products and solutions at Fortinet. “As the industry faces a cyber talent shortage and the pressure to maintain operational efficiency and security efficacy is critical for digital business, a new approach is needed that brings visibility and control into the NOC with workflow and response automation in the SOC. Fortinet is introducing a customized NOC-SOC solution that bridges the gap across IT disciplines to achieve broad and automated security response.”
