The Fortinet Security Fabric provides an intelligent architecture that interconnects discrete security solutions into an integrated whole to detect, monitor, block, and remediate attacks across the entire attack surface. All elements in the Security Fabric work together as a team to share policy, threat intelligence, and application flow information that expand network visibility to provide fast threat detection in real time and the ability to initiate and synchronize a coordinated response, no matter which part of the network is being compromised.
This section describes the following topics:
Automation — Automation Stitches pair an event trigger with one or more actions to monitor the network and take the designated actions automatically when the Security Fabric detects a threat.
Fabric connectors — Fabric connectors provide integration with Fortinet products to automate the process of managing dynamic security updates without manual intervention.
External connectors — External connectors provide integration with public and private cloud solutions to ensure changes to cloud environment attributes are automatically updated in the Security Fabric.
