NRF 2015 NEWS: Fortinet Unveils New Secure Wireless Access Points

01/15/2015
Fortinet released seven new FortiAP Wireless LAN Access Points at the National Retail Foundation's (NRF) 104th annual Retail's Big Show in New York City. Fortinet's new FortiAP Access Points are engineered to deliver businesses with expansive wireless LAN coverage, maximum device density and increased bandwidth. Combined with Fortinet's threat protection, IT departments can rest easy knowing that their wireless LAN is secure.
 
Fortinet's portfolio of security solutions enables businesses to consolidate stand-alone products, embrace new technologies and pursue business opportunities, all while remaining completely secure.
 
FortiAP's are thin access points, enabling secure, identity-driven Wi-Fi access for an organization's network. Designed to seamlessly integrate with the built-in enterprise wireless LAN controller of the market-leading FortiGate appliance, Fortinet delivers a true end-to-end Unified Access Layer. This holistic approach enables businesses to easily manage wired and wireless security from a single management console and protects their network from the latest security threats that other security vendors might miss.
 
Fortinet's new FortiAP Wireless Access Points deliver the security, throughput and resiliency to enable organizations to take advantage of the latest innovative wireless technologies. Featuring top rated threat prevention; these new FortiAP Wireless Access Points utilize the latest high-performance technologies, supporting dual and triple stream MIMO 802.11ac technology.
 
These security and performance features enable organizations to implement innovative wireless technologies like Point-of-Sale (POS) and inventory systems or simply deliver robust BYOD and mobility services without worrying about the integrity of their networks.
 
As part of Fortinet's broad Connect and Secure solution, FortiAP Wireless LAN Access Points integrate seamlessly with Fortinet's FortiGate Next Generation Firewall (NGFW) and Unified Threat Management (UTM) products, eliminating the need for stand-alone network switches or wireless LAN controllers, greatly reducing complexity. This allows distributed organizations to better adhere to compliance regulations and analyze customer behavior to compete more effectively in the marketplace
 
Going beyond just Wi-Fi access, FortiAP's can also be paired with Fortinet's FortiPresence Analytics solution, launched in August 2014, which delivers customer presence analytics to power the brick-and-mortar retail stores of the future. FortiPresence enables FortiAP's to function as a sensor that can analyze the location of foot traffic, distinguish between new or repeat visitors, provide historical and real-time data analysis and much more. Enabling innovative marketing engagement initiatives like social Wi-Fi access and smart digital signage, FortiPresence paired with FortiAP's enable retailers to optimize their businesses for the digital age and turning your network a competitive advantage.
