Infoblox Integration with Fortinet Fortigate Next-gen Firewall

Infoblox and Fortinet FortiGate: Securing your Network

From IoT to an always-on mobile workforce, organizations face increasingly complex IT infrastructures that are more exposed to attacks than ever before. By combining Infoblox’s IPAM and DNS security and protection with Fortinet’s Next Generation Firewall (NGFW), users can automate the security of their network.

Infoblox and FortiGate NGFW together enable security and incident response teams to leverage the integration of firewalls and DNS security to enhance visibility, manage assets, ease compliance and automate remediation. Thus, improving your security posture while maximizing your ROI in both products.

Watch this video to get a quick overview of the integration.

In the attached documents you will find the templates for the Fortinet integration in PDF and txt format. The templates are provided “as-is” and should be tested in your lab environment and modified as needed before implementing them into production.
