Zero Trust

Zero Trust is an approach to security based on the principles of least-privilege and continuously authenticated, authorized, and monitored communications. Zero Trust Network Access (ZTNA) is an essential first step that provides a foundation for effective implementation of ZT Architectures.  Aligned with NIST Zero Trust Architecture guidance, ZTNA is at the core of Fortinet’s technology that provides consistent, seamless, and continuously validated application access for all users and resources, regardless of their location.  Fortinet Security Fabric stretches across the breadth of an agency’s attack surface and features enhanced context-aware and risk-based conditional Zero Trust policy enforcement for every access request.

Features and Benefits

Flexible Deployment

Enables ZTNA policy enforcement for the entire workforce, anytime and anywhere.

Granular Access Control

Grant users and devices access to specific applications within predetermined parameters and permissions.

Ongoing Verification

Verify user identity, device identity, device security posture, and user access rights prior to granting application access.

Client-Initiated Model

Continuously validated, secure access to applications delivers both improved endpoint security (visibility and control) and a better user experience (prioritizing performance of mission critical applications).

Integrated Capability

Fortinet’s ZTNA requires no additional licenses or cost. It is an embedded feature in FortiOS and FortiClient that allows organizations to shift from VPN access to ZTNA at their own pace.

Automatic Encrypted Tunnels

Fortinet’s ZTNA automatically creates TLS-encrypted tunnels from the endpoints to the access proxy, allowing agencies to inspect network traffic while ensuring that it is hidden from unauthorized users or devices.
