Governments face a number of different potential emergency situations, such as illness, floods, hurricanes, and power outages. Governments must function as the management and coordination point in the face of adversity by communicating with citizens through openness and transparency. Implementing a business continuity plan is essential to ensuring government is capable of maintaining operations in the face of adversity and preparing for potential disasters. We have entered a new era where government workers can be required to work remotely. Government must be capable of supporting secure, remote connectivity to the network. For over 400,000 Fortinet customers, their existing technology deployment already contains this functionality. FortiGate next-generation firewalls (NGFWs) have integrated support for SSL and IPsec VPNs, enabling secure connectivity for employees working from alternate work sites.
