Fortinet collaborates with AWS to deliver integrated next-generation firewall
Fortinet announced new integrations with Amazon Web Services (AWS) to further provide customers with advanced security across their cloud platforms, applications, and network. Fortinet’s cloud security solutions – including its virtual next-generation firewall, FortiGate-VM and web application firewall (WAF), FortiWeb – are designed to protect workloads and business applications across on-premises data centers and cloud environments. Fortinet is continuing to provide a broad set of natively integrated security solutions using AWS to provide customers with full visibility and control of applications and centralized management across cloud and hybrid environments.
Rajesh Maurya, regional vice president, India and SAARC at Fortinet, said: “Enterprises are increasingly looking to integrate both native cloud security and Fortinet’s enterprise-class cloud security offerings to protect their workloads on AWS. Fortinet has always collaborated closely with AWS on security initiatives and we will leverage AWS Marketplace to further enable rapid deployment.”
The announcement builds on Fortinet’s existing collaboration with AWS. Fortinet delivers natively integrated and enhanced security for available AWS services, including Amazon GuardDuty, AWS CloudFormation and AWS Outposts. Supporting the broadest set of use cases, Fortinet’s Security Fabric offers customers with comprehensive security for AWS workloads including firewall, security gateway, intrusion prevention and web application security. AWS is also part of Fortinet Open Fabric Ecosystem, one of theindustry’s largest cybersecurity ecosystems
“For our customers deploying data and applications in AWS, S2 Global has been able to automate operations through the FortiGate-VM Next-Generation Firewalls to protect their VPC environments. With the FortiGate-VM seamlessly integrating with AWS CloudFormation, we’ve been able to create an automated setup for rolling out Fortinet solutions on AWS. Now it takes just a couple of minutes to spin up a new firewall and 40 minutes for an entire stack deployment when previously it would have taken hours. In doing so, we’ve reduced the risk of human error while freeing up time for our IT teams to focus on other business-critical operations,” said Nikolay Chigrin, senior system engineer, AWS at S2 Global.
