Heavy Networking 676: Implementing ZTNA And SASE With Fortinet (Sponsored)

If the last time you designed a security solution for your company, it was all about perimeter firewalls and issuing VPN clients to your users. Everything is different now. At least, it should be, because the legacy model of firewalls at key points and VPN clients to provide remote users secure access to your precious applications doesn’t map to the way the world works anymore. The current problem is providing secure connectivity to users that are anywhere accessing applications that are anywhere. Several different security tools are used to solve this problem, as different techniques are required depending on where your user is coming from and where the app they are trying to get at is located. I’ll spare you the acronym soup for now, because we’re going to get into it with our sponsor, Fortinet. Fortinet is a security vendor most of you have heard of. But if all you think of when you hear the name “Fortinet” is firewalls, well yeah, but you should think more broadly. On today’s sponsored episode we’re going after the work-from-anywhere challenge with Fortinet’s Universal Zero Trust Network Access (ZTNA) and Secure Access Service Edge (SASE) tech, all of which is baked into FortiOS. If you’re running a FortiGate, you’ve got these capabilities already, whether you’re using them or not. Joining us for the discussion today are Alex Samonte Field CTO & VP of Product Development and Peter Newton Senior Director of Products. We discuss: * How Fortinet defines Universal ZTNA and SASE * ZTNA building blocks including a clean identity store & accurate application inventory * Supporting on-prem and cloud access * Integrating SASE with ZTNA * ManagingUniversal ZTNA and SASE with FortiManager * Including ZTNA and SASE in your Fortinet licensing * More Show Links: Fortinet.com/ZTNA Fortinet.com/SASE Fortinet ZTNA Documentation Library Fortinet FortiSASE Documentation Library What is User Entity and Behavior Analytics (UEBA)? – Fortinet
