Lycée Louis Massignon selects Fortinet Security Fabric

Fortinet today announced that Lycée Louis Massignon (LLM) relies on the Fortinet Security Fabric to improve its security infrastructure and keep its students and staff safe online.

LLM was looking for a secure solution that will keep them secure and ahead of the threats, could be centrally managed, reduce operational overhead and offer unified visibility and control of the entire security and network.

After evaluating several offerings in the market, the school opted for the Fortinet Security Fabric approach which combines protection across the entire attack surface and cycle with unified management and orchestration, market leading AI-powered security services, granular control, and centralized compliance capabilities. FortiGate next-generation firewalls (NGFWs) supporting secure sockets layer (SSL) inspection (including TLS1.3), with natively integrated FortiGuard cloud delivered web filtering, and advanced intrusion prevention (IPS)were deployed in the LLM infrastructure, reducing complexity by consolidating multiple point products into one Security Fabric.

Another part of the solution is the deployment of FortiSwitches, which are managed through the FortiGate NGFW, offering a seamless experience when connecting to wired and wireless networks for both students and staff. Lastly, FortiAnalyzer has provided analytics and automation to provide better detection and response against cyber threats while streamlining SOC operations.

“Right after the implementation was completed, we have experienced unified management and an ease of operation. In more general terms, we have much more confidence in our security infrastructure. Fortinet’s team was really supportive and attentive to understand our pain points and recommend the best solutions,” concludes Christope Hammami, IT Manager at Lycée Louis Massignon.
