FortiSwitch secure access switch delivers outstanding security, performance and manageability for threat-conscious small to mid-sized businesses, distributed enterprises and branch offices. Tightly integrated into the FortiGate Network Security Platform, the FortiSwitch secure access switch can be managed directly from the familiar FortiGate interface. This single-pane-of-glass management provides complete visibility and control of all users and devices on the network, regardless of how they connect. When a device connects to a secure access switch Ethernet port, it is first identified, and then the user is authenticated. Once authenticated, access to the network is granted based on pre-defined security policy from the FortiGate, ensuring secure network access across the enterprise, without impacting the user experience.
