Cyber threats are becoming more complex with new everyday dangers. From the IoT (Internet of Things) network to the cloud, businesses need an architecture that integrates, synchronises, and automates defence measures across their networks. Through its security fabric architecture, Fortinet provides a broad portfolio of advanced solutions for Vietnamese companies to help them grow their business safely.
These critical infrastructure systems are also increasingly targeted by cybercriminals, with a reported 51 per cent of critical infrastructure enterprises reporting an OT (Operational Technology)/SCADA (supervisory control and data acquisition)/ICS (industrial control systems) security breach within the past 12 months.
Targeting and taking out a critical infrastructure system has huge appeal for numerous cybercriminals, especially cyber terrorists or criminal organisations. Motivations include holding systems hostage for a ransom, stock price manipulation (short sell, attack, and reap a “clean” profit), denial of assets or production for strategic or tactical reasons, political awareness or impact or corporate malfeasance (illegal competitive action).
Unfortunately, not only are many of these now-connected systems quite vulnerable to compromise, unlike IT networks, a failure in one of these sectors also has the possibility of causing a catastrophic event affecting both human life and property. The consequences of a successful attack can lead to the disruption and even destruction of physical assets and essential services like water, electricity, and fuel.
Fortinet is among the top five public cyber security companies in the world. Its broad portfolio of solutions spans network, infrastructure, cloud, and IoT security.
Fortinet protects large enterprises, service providers, and government organisations around the world, including Vietnam, by providing customers with unmatched, intelligent protection across the entire extended attack surface. It also has the ability to meet the increasing performance requirements of borderless networks, now and in the future.
The Fortinet Security Fabric architecture can provide security without compromise, thereby addressing critical security challenges in the network, application, cloud or mobile environments.
At Fortinet, we offer both IT and OT solutions and ensure that they can work together. We have a number of experts in charge of critical infrastructure who have numerous years of experience in protecting OT for critical infrastructure.
90 per cent of cyber attacks were conducted via business email compromise scams. Fortinet supplies customers with security framework or security fabric with specific solutions. For example, in order to prevent email scams, Fortinet has an email security solution ready.
Advanced threats require more than passive security systems, especially when protecting critical infrastructure. Fortunately, the behaviour of most OT systems can be pretty easily defined, which means that unusual or aberrant behaviour should be likewise relatively easy to detect and block with a UEBA (user and entity behaviour analytics) system in place.
In Vietnam, Fortinet supplies comprehensive solutions for customers, including total security, enterprise Wi-Fi, storage, data, and information management. Fortinet’s customers are enterprises operating in telecommunications, finance and banking, energy, technology, and healthcare, among others. Based on our strengths, Fortinet is looking at mobile and internet network providers, state agencies, and small- and medium-sized enterprises. Two of the largest mobile and internet network providers and one of the four largest banks are Fortinet’s customers.
