Fortinet: How GenAI assistants can upskill cyber teams

Fortinet harnesses more than a decade of AI and deep threat expertise to empower customers with a cutting-edge GenAI tool that upskills cybersecurity teams

Global cybersecurity leader Fortinet has announced it has added Fortinet Advisor, a generative AI (GenAI) assistant, to its portfolio of more than 40 AI-powered offerings to help upskills cybersecurity teams. 

AI has served as the backbone of the Fortinet Security Fabric and FortiGuard Labs threat intelligence and security services for more than a decade, and the implementation of GenAI is Fortinet’s latest innovation designed to protect customers and keep business operations online. The company says the initial release of Fortinet Advisor will help support and guide security operations (SecOps) teams so they can investigate and remediate threats faster than ever before.

“Fortinet has pioneered AI innovation within cybersecurity, and to date, we’ve delivered more than 40 AI-powered offerings that put the transformative power of this technology into customers’ hands,” said Michael Xie, Founder, President, and Chief Technology Officer at Fortinet. “We’re excited to build on our legacy as a leader in AI cybersecurity innovation with Fortinet Advisor, which combines Fortinet’s vast intelligence network with the benefits of GenAI to increase security team productivity and accelerate threat detection and mitigation.”

How Fortinet Advisor empowers SecOps teams

Today, Fortinet says its Advisor is available within FortiSIEM, Fortinet’s security information and event management solution, and FortiSOAR, Fortinet’s security orchestration, automation and response offering.

Fortinet Security Operations Solutions already enable customers to slash the time needed to identify and contain threats from more than 20 days to less than an hour and condense investigation and remediation timelines from more than 18 hours to 15 minutes or less. By providing contextually aware incident analysis, remediation guidance, and playbook templates, Fortinet Advisor delivers critical information in natural language within seconds so SecOps teams can further reduce the mean time to detect and respond as well as improve their organisations’ overall risk posture.

More than a decade of AI-powered threat research, prevention, detection and response

Fortinet has been on the bleeding edge of AI innovation for more than a decade, and more than 700,000 customers already benefit from AI-powered offerings, including FortiGuard AI-Powered Security Services, FortiAIOps, FortiEDR, and FortiAnalyzer. The use of AI across the Fortinet Security Fabric aids in zero-day threat detection, helps remediate today’s most sophisticated attacks and enables IT teams to refine and resolve networking and security issues before they impact the organisation.
