FortiManager appliances provide you with a secure web-based interface for the command and control of your Fortinet security infrastructure. FortiManager appliances also provide centralized policy-based provisioning, configuration, and update management for FortiGate, FortiWiFi, and FortiMail appliances, as well as FortiClient endpoint security agents. Finally, FortiManager includes real-time monitoring capabilities for added visibility.
To complete your centralized management solution, FortiManager compliments the FortiAnalyzer appliances. These appliances provide in-depth discovery, analysis, prioritization, and reporting of the security events detected within your environment. Together, the FortiManager and FortiAnalyzer systems form a comprehensive and enterprise-class management solution.
