- Advanced Threat Protection (ATP): FortiGate Premium may include advanced threat protection features, such as sandboxing and behavior-based analysis, to detect and mitigate sophisticated threats that evade traditional security measures.
- Application Control: FortiGate allows you to monitor and control the applications running on your network, enabling you to set policies for application usage, prioritize critical applications, and block unauthorized or high-risk applications.
- Centralized Management: FortiGate firewalls can be managed centrally through a management console, providing a unified view of your security infrastructure, simplified configuration management, and streamlined monitoring and reporting capabilities.
