Delivering Fortinet Security to AWS GovCloud Customers

By Cynthia Hsieh | August 10, 2017

Fortinet and Amazon Web Services are committed to delivering world-class security to new AWS GovCloud workloads. With the continuation of our partnership in the new release of AWS GovCloud, we are now able to further protect mission-critical government workloads with six virtual security products optimized for AWS.

A Security Fabric for the AWS GovCloud

Fortinet’s Security Fabric solutions for the cloud have been released on the highly secure AWS GovCloud to provide comprehensive security, threat intelligence, and the visibility to detect, isolate, and respond to threats in real time for workloads running in the GovCloud environment. Virtual security solutions such as Fortinet’s industry leading enterprise firewall (FortiGate), web application firewall (FortiWeb), email security (FortiMail), integrated security management (FortiManager), log analytics and threat analysis (FortiAnalyzer), and our security information and event management (FortiSIEM) are all available. These tools not only provide comprehensive security and management for your AWS environment, but also allow you to seamlessly extend your Fortinet Security Fabric architecture into the AWS cloud. Fortinet is also a go-to-market partner with AWS GovCloud.

Fortinet is Committed to Securing the Government

Fortinet’s recently established standalone Federal subsidiary and Federal Board of Directors allows us to maintain the dedicated focus required to ensure that our cybersecurity innovation keeps pace with the government’s complex and critical security requirements.

Fortinet has a long history of security leadership within the public sector security market. We work closely with the US Federal Government to define security requirements and deliver leading solutions to serve its departments and organizations. Additionally, we work closely with the US security community to identify and deter threats as they are identified, and provide critical and actionable threat intelligence designed to meet the complex and critical security requirements of today’s complex government agency networks.

Simplified Software Consumption

The pricing and procurement of software is simplified through AWS Marketplace for AWS GovCloud to support Bring-Your-Own-License (BYOL) to help you easily migrate and consolidate existing software licenses and applications.

Increased Speed of Procurement

With the “Launch with 1-Click” AWS CloudFormation templates, including high availability, auto scaling, or transit VPC designed by Fortinet, customers can instantly subscribe and deploy advanced security to support regulated workloads through AWS Marketplace for AWS GovCloud (US).  AWS GovCloud (US) is an isolated AWS region designed to host sensitive data and regulated workloads in the cloud, assisting customers who have U.S. federal, state, and local government compliance requirements.
