Mobility/Wireless LTE Security – FortiCarrier OS

FortiCarrier extends FortiGate Network Security Appliances (NGFW, UTM, Data Center Firewall) with additional FortiOS features specifically designed for protecting Carrier/ISP Networks and their customers, particularly with the accelerating adoption of Mobile Data and Wireless LTE infrastructure. Mobile devices and applications are undergoing a time of exponential growth, requiring Carriers and Internet Service Providers (ISPs) to take steps to protect their expanding infrastructure, stop the spread of malware and botnets within their environments, and provide migration paths to IPv6. Next Generation Firewall (NGFW) features such as application control and intrusion prevention (IPS) of encapsulated streams takes on additional meanings in LTE infrastructure as tools to aid in radio resource control, a denial-of-service (DoS) concern for mobility operators. Mobility services such as MMS now require content inspection to reduce the transfer of malware between smart mobile devices, as well as content scanning to prevent data leakage prevention (DLP) for corporate and government users.
