Fortinet _Expections in 2015

Hi All,

Wish you great year ahead.


I believe FIDO ( Fast Identity Online) gonna be the smartest thing in 2015 in network Security World...!

I hope Fortinet too is working to build a  "FIDO Firewall"..

If yes, All the best wishes.

Let's forget passwords and can start use our finger prints or retina to authenticate. :p

I agreed on the last part but I believe passwords will still be used in conjunction with  some type of fringerprint or retina scan.


For FIDO I don't know of any hardware security firewall vendor having a FIDO appearance of have been associated with this.To generate a password free authentication would be very nice, but  we are years away from this being industry standard & accepted. I believe until of the kinks have been removed risks eliminated, than we will find more FIDO. Also the hardware needs to be ramped up also. We don't want our yubikey reader failing when we are trying to get online to check our social media page or place  a bid on our online market place.


Maybe FTNT will be the 1st . Either way, a  Happy 2015 to all.
