The strategic partnership includes an integration of the FortiGate Next Generation Firewall (NGFW) functionality on iS5Com’s RAPTOR® iMX350 & iMX950 Models.
MISSISSAUGA, ONTARIO, CANADA, September 9, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — iS5 Communications Inc. (“iS5Com”) announces with great pleasure a joint Technology partnership with Fortinet, an American multinational corporation headquartered in Sunnyvale, California.
The partnership between iS5Com and Fortinet includes an integration of the FortiGate Next Generation Firewall (NGFW) functionality on iS5Com’s RAPTOR® iMX350 & iMX950 Models. The RAPTOR is an intelligent cybersecure hardware running the iBiome® OS, an all-encompassing operating system that supports L2/L3 switching and routing on a single platform.
Fortinet’s FortiGate product combined with iS5Com’s RAPTOR platform is a robust solution that will provide the ability to identify attacks, malware, and other threats and allow the NGFW to block threats. Extending beyond stateful firewall capabilities, NGFW’s provide SSL inspection, applications control, Deep Packet Inspection (DPI), and identifying threats across multiple attack surfaces.
“As IT/OT networks continue to evolve, we believe that the integration of Fortinet’s technology is the right step in providing enhanced cybersecurity functionality in iS5Com’s portfolio. Fortinet’s FortiGate product integrates with the RAPTOR using the iS5Com iROC module (application processor). We look forward to a positive relationship with Fortinet and are excited to offer this solution to our customers on RAPTOR.” said iS5Com’s Founder, President & CEO, Clive Dias.
The Fortinet FortiGate integration with the RAPTOR provides numerous benefits for OT environments and their operators, including:
• A singular multiservice platform solution
• IT enterprise-grade NGFW for harsh environments
• Robust Industrial Design, compliant with IEC61850 and IEEE1613 standards
• Ease of implementation – Simplified GUI management, smaller footprint, single power source, and simple integration
The RAPTOR is an intelligent cybersecure hardware with 64 Gb/s full line speed and 4 x 10Gb/s + 24 1Gb/s ports running the iBiome® OS. The iBiome® OS is an all-encompassing operating system that supports L2/L3 switching and routing on a single platform. Its modular system of field-replaceable modules, redundant hot-swappable power supplies, and ability to run third-party software applications makes it a very flexible platform for today and the future. Combined with the Fortigate VM®, RAPTOR will enable Industrial applications to have “best in breed” security solutions for their OT applications. This will include firewall functionality in addition to Fortinet’s Advance Threat Intelligence capabilities such as IPS, Application control, vulnerability management, and malware protection specific to OT environments.
