Fortinet Secures Workloads on AWS

By Dave Morrissey | March 28, 2017

Fortinet is proud to be a Silver Sponsor of the 2017 Amazon Web Services (AWS) Summit being held April 5th and 6th in Sydney, Australia at the Hordern Pavilion & Royal Hall of Industries.

Security is a high priority for Amazon Web Services. AWS customers benefit from a cloud-based network architecture designed to meet the requirements of the most security-sensitive organizations. However, many organizations also require additional advanced security solutions. Fortinet in cooperation with AWS provides a full suite of carrier-class security solutions designed for the rigors and unique challenges of the cloud environment.

Most organizations, however, are not looking to deploy another set of security technologies that require separate management and resources. Which is why Fortinet security solutions can be integrated together into a holistic security framework. Fortinet Partners are able to provide their customers with advanced security solutions not only on AWS, but also for enterprise networks, endpoints, applications, data centers, and access points.  These are all designed to work together as an integrated and collaborative security fabric.

Fortinet Partners can collaborate with customers to determine the specific security posture enablement their unique network ecosystem requires, drawing from a wide selection of features, including intrusion prevention (IPS), antivirus, application control, WAN optimization, data loss prevention (DLP), web filtering, anti-spam filtering, explicit proxy, and log analytics.

Fortinet partners can also guide cloud customers to the operational model best suited for their environment with options for both On-Demand Pay-As-You-Go pricing and Bring-Your-Own-License (BYOL) perpetual licenses.

Of course, orchestration is key in the cloud.  Partners can work with the Fortinet Cloud Formation Templates to facilitate such things as Security Auto Scaling, High Availability failover automation, and hub and spoke Transit VPC to rapidly set-up and manage complex architectures.

Fortinet’s relationship with AWS benefits our partners and customers in creating scalable, secure networks while leveraging the elasticity and cost compression of the cloud. Please stop by our booth in the Expo Hall to learn more about how Fortinet can help you secure your workloads on AWS.
