Aug 24 2017 - Foundation of Learning - Defended.
GISS is providing a cluster of three Fortigate 300D UTM firewalls and a FortiAnalyzer-VM to a large foundation of 6 independent schools. One of the key requirements was the capability of the Fortigate to not only secure Windows and Macintosh devices, but also to securely handle and audit trail internet traffic from 500+ student iPads via RSSO. This has been done with great success. This firewall cluster also deploys SD-WAN (Software Defined-WAN) for easier firewall policy deployment and connection redundancy.
