CASE STUDY insight into network traffic and threats through a single pane of glass .
Dawood and his team now have full control and visibility over the entire infrastructure with FortiAnalyser for centralised logging , reporting , and analysis . The result is less time spent firefighting and more time optimising and planning . The final crucial component of any Fortinet solution is the threat intelligence delivered by FortiGuard Labs . Gathering threat information from customer networks and a global community of threat partners around the world , Fortinet ’ s analysts employ the latest Machine Learning ( ML ) and Artificial Intelligence ( AI ) tools to process over 100 billion events per day . This collection , correlation and automated delivery of real-time threat intelligence back to Fortinet ’ s products provides Oriental Weavers and all Fortinet customers , with comprehensive and actionable security updates across the full range of threats encountered .
Looking to the future
In the months following completion of the SD-WAN rollout , Oriental Weavers was able to reduce their branch communications costs by up to 80 % with zero downtime in applications availability . Realtime access to critical data and applications has led to faster transaction processing , which in turn has driven greater efficiencies in stock and logistics management . The effect has transformed the overall customer experience , while further reducing operating costs .
NOT ONLY DID WE
COMPLETE THE ROLLOUT AT A TIME WHEN MANY PROJECTS WERE BEING
POSTPONED , BUT WE HAD ALL 180 SHOWROOMS ONLINE WITHIN JUST
THREE MONTHS .
Not content to rest on their laurels , however , Dawood and team are now considering reinforcing their resilience to network failure and cyberattack through unified event correlation and risk management . The Fortinet security information and event management solution , FortiSIEM , uses ML to detect unusual user and entity behaviour analytics ( UEBA ) without the need to create complex rules . Such an approach can help to identify both insider and inbound threats that might otherwise pass traditional defences . Highfidelity alerts then prioritise which threats require immediate attention .
“ The project so far has proven a great success . The customers are happy with the improved service , the executives are happy with the lower risk profile and operating costs , and my team is happy to have more time to focus on new challenges ,” he said . p
