CimTrak for Fortinet

What We Monitor

The Fortinet Fortigate is a firewall device that provides controlled connectivity between an internal network and an external network (internet) while providing protection for the internal network by blocking traffic that isn’t explicitly allowed. Fortinet devices can be configured to provide additional security functions as well. CimTrak for Network Devices monitors the device configuration for changes, logs the changes, and then notifies the responsible parties of them.

At user-configured intervals, CimTrak reads the contents the configuration, calculates the digital signature, and compares it to the signature stored in CimTrak’s master repository. When CimTrak detects a change in the configuration, its contents and its digital signature is then stored in the master repository.

The master repository then logs the detected change and sends notifications to the configured emails and/or configured syslog services and/or SNMP services.
