AppGate enables organizations to adopt a Software-Defined Perimeter approach for granular security control. AppGate makes the application/server infrastructure effectively “invisible.” It then provides users with access to authorized resources only, verifying user context and attributes — including device posture and identity — before granting access to an application. Once the user logs out, the secure tunnel disappears. Additionally, when a user’s context changes – such as moving from a corporate to a public network, additional security requirements (such as multi-factor authentication) can be enforced, or access can be denied. All controlled by a simple policy.

Networks are constantly evolving due to threats, organizational growth, or new regulatory/business requirements. Traditional management products focus on mitigating company-wide threats through firewall policies, firmware updates, and keeping content security current. FortiManager offers the features to contain threats as well as providing flexibility to evolve along with your ever-changing network.
