A new initiative from Fortinet makes securing hybrid networks easier, more complete

The hyper-digital transformation that online casinos are undergoing will not stop but will accelerate. Due to new technological developments and a shortage of skilled labor, many operators in the iGaming industry will rely on artificial intelligence (AI) to address their business challenges, including the protection of their hybrid networks. To help with this goal, Fortinet, a cybersecurity company that develops and sells intelligent solutions to industries such as these, has announced the release of FortiOS 7.2.

Fortinet’s new AI-based platform is considered the latest update to its flagship operating system and the foundation of Fortinet Security Fabric. Through its more than 300 features, IGaming operators can now converge security at each end of the combined network. In order to achieve this, it uses the scale and performance necessary to prevent and detect threats across the entire infrastructure of the organization itself.

Data is the “most precious commodity” for cybercriminals, who are particularly focused on attacking online casinos because of the large amount of data and, in most cases, its confidential nature. There are other factors that can cause an iGaming platform to lose its data or that of its employees or customers, but there is no doubt that cyber-attacks are, nowadays, one of the main causes.

Being the focus of cybercriminals, iGaming operators need to have IT solutions that are up to the task of preventing cyber-attacks. They have to ensure that, if they occur, data recovery is simple and effective.

FortiOS 7.2 is an essential tool that offers new AI-powered FortiGuard security services, enhancements to the only converged security and networking platform available today, and further consolidation of security point products across networks, endpoints and clouds. These enhancements enable FortiOS to further protect today’s hybrid networks in the face of a growing threat landscape while helping online casinos achieve digital acceleration.
