iS5 Communications | Fortinet

MISSISSAUGA, ON – June 15, 2021 – Today, iS5 Communications Inc. (“iS5Com”) announced with great pleasure a joint Technology partnership with Fortinet, an American multinational corporation headquartered in Sunnyvale, California.

The partnership between iS5Com and Fortinet includes an integration of the FortiGate Next Gen Firewall (NGFW) functionality on iS5Com’s RAPTOR® iMX350 & iMX950 Models. The RAPTOR is an intelligent cybersecure hardware running the iBiome® OS, an all-encompassing operating system that supports L2/L3 switching and routing on a single platform.

Fortinet’s FortiGate product combined with iS5Com’s RAPTOR platform is a robust solution that will provide the ability to identify attacks, malware, and other threats, and allow the NGFW to block threats. Extending beyond stateful firewall capabilities, NGFW’s provide SSL inspection, applications control, Deep Packet Inspection (DPI), and identifying threats across multiple attack surfaces.

“As IT/OT networks continue to evolve, we believe that the integration of Fortinet’s technology is the right step in providing enhanced cybersecurity functionality in iS5Com’s portfolio. Fortinet’s FortiGate product integrates with the RAPTOR using the iS5Com iROC module (application processor). We look forward to a positive relationship with Fortinet and are excited to offer this solution to our customers on RAPTOR” said iS5Com’s Founder, President & CEO, Clive Dias.

iS5 provides a solid, hardened product that meets my utilities needs for a very competitive price. Features such as 1000BaseT Ethernet, fiber optic uplink options, POE, secure protocols for administration, standards-based management and solid user interface provide excellent value for the money. So far, all the units have been working perfectly with no issues, some of them have been in place for over a year.
