Fortinet, leading cybersecurity solutions provider today announced its collaboration with Amazon Web Services (AWS) to offer customers with advanced security across their cloud platforms, applications, and network.
According to the company’s official communiqué, Fortinet’s cloud security solutions such as virtual next-generation firewall, FortiGate-VM and web application firewall (WAF), FortiWeb are developed 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 & SAARC at Fortinet says, “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.”
Fortinet offers a broad range of security products in VM, container, and SaaS form factors with flexible bring-your-own-license (BYOL) and pay-as-you-go (PAYG) billing options through AWS Marketplace. Products that can be purchased through AWS Marketplace include FortiGate-VM Next Generation Firewalls, FortiWeb WAF, FortiMail, FortiSandbox, Fortinet Managed Rules for AWS WAF and more.
“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,” says Nikolay Chigrin, Senior System Engineer, AWS at S2 Global.
“Fortinet’s new Consulting Services available in AWS Marketplace was very valuable in optimizing the security of our AWS implementation. AdvisorEngine leveraged Fortinet’s services to design, architect and implement the FortiGate Next-Generation Firewall to enhance our security posture. The service was easy to procure and to arrange through via the new placement in AWS Marketplace,” says Vladimir Baranov CTO @ AdvisorEngine Inc.
“With the introduction of AWS Network Firewall, customers can leverage global threat intelligence from Fortinet to protect their VPCs and securely accelerate their cloud journey. We are pleased to expand our relationship with Fortinet to provide our customers with managed, advanced protection for their AWS deployments,” says Andrew Thomas, General Manager of Perimeter Protection, Amazon Web Services, Inc.
