We live in an anytime, anywhere world. From Facebook and TikTok, to Microsoft (News - Alert) Teams and Zoom, we expect connectivity and consistent experience. So, whether you’re a road warrior, relegated to the remote workforce or re-entering the office, expectations are high.




Fortinet is forging the frontier of this new reality, taking a leadership role by merging zero trust, endpoint and network security within the Fortinet Security Fabric, and serving as the only vendor capable of providing contextual security, access and networking based on location.

John Maddison, EVP of Products and CMO at Fortinet (News - Alert) explained, “Empowering users to move seamlessly between different work environments has critical implications for maintaining user productivity as well as security. Cybercriminals have been quick to exploit the expanded attack surface and security gaps created by this shift in work patterns to get a foothold into the corporate network.”

Work-from-anywhere is not a goal line, it’s a baseline. For the road warrior, Fortinet integrates endpoint security, zero trust access and network security (SASE) to prevent device vulnerability and protect against future threats.

Work-from-home offers challenges like non-secure IoT devices or the kids gobbling bandwidth watching Netflix or playing Xbox. Linksys HomeWRK for Business Secured by Fortinet steps in to overcome the unique productivity pitfalls of WFH.

Finally, old faithful: the office. Endpoint security remains a focal point in a layered security approach, and the Fortinet Secure Fabric offers an integrated and automated cybersecurity solution.

Fortinet’s cybersecurity threat intelligence and research wing, FortiGuard Labs ensures the vendor remains one-step ahead of cybercriminals with the best threat identification and protection information available. Actionable threat intelligence translates to rapid security enforcement.

“Today’s enterprise organizations require work-from-anywhere security that is as flexible and dynamic as today’s business demands. Fortinet is the only vendor capable of delivering unified security built for the Work-from-Anywhere Era that seamlessly adapts based on a user’s environment and risk profile,” Maddison continued.

What does your work-from-anywhere world look like?
