FortiSIEM for AWS

By Dave Morrissey | June 13, 2017

Far too often, organizations adopting a cloud-based strategy lose critical visibility and control for infrastructure and resources located in the cloud environment. Protecting dynamically scaled cloud compute resources can be challenging, especially for organizations that lack the time or money it takes to maintain dynamic security. To address this challenge, they need to extend their security strategy using tools designed to create and support a holistic security strategy that spans their entire distributed network ecosystem.

Which is why Fortinet is proud to announce that our FortiSIEM solution is now available for the AWS Marketplace, providing the resources needed to optimize AWS networks. FortiSIEM for AWS provides essential security services for cloud environments, including:

  • Unified analysis of log, flow, performance, and change data in the context of an auto-discovered configuration management database (CMDB.)
  • Real time alerting, compliance reporting, cloud scale architecture for on-premise and cloud infrastructure and application data sources
  • Support for multi-tenant environments, making it MSP/MSSP ready

AWS Public Sector Summit, June 13-14

For public sector organizations looking for solutions and strategies to extend security visibility and control into an AWS environment, we will be showcasing FortiSIEM this week at the AWS Public Sector Summit being held June 13-14. If you are there, please drop by Fortinet Booth #559.

As a reminder, Fortinet is a certified AWS Public Sector Competency Partner, and FortiSIEM for AWS is designed to scale to the unique needs of public organizations of all sizes and configurations. In addition, Fortinet recently announced the formation of Fortinet Federal, a new specialized subsidiary within Fortinet designed to focus on cybersecurity solutions specific to the Federal market.
