Introduction

FortiPortal Management Extension Application (MEA) enables customers to operate a cloud-based hosted security management and log retention service. It provides end customers with centralized reporting, traffic analysis, configuration management, and log retention without the need for the end customer to invest in additional hardware and software.

You must enable the ADOM mode for FortiManager to work with FortiPortal MEA.

FortiPortal MEA 6.0.1 Beta requires FortiManager 6.4.4 or later, and you must be in a 6.4 ADOM to access FortiPortal MEA.

FortiPortal MEA is well-suited to multi-tenancy customers. For example, a managed security service provider (MSSP) can provide a self-service portal for FortiManager for a customer's managed security devices such as FortiGate devices, VDOMs, and FortiWiFi. Having both FortiManager and FortiPortal MEA provides new service revenue opportunities for MSSPs.
