Today, Fortinet is announcing the availability of FortiWeb Cloud WAF as a Service, delivered on Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI), Oracle’s next-generation enterprise cloud. This further expands Fortinet’s Adaptive Cloud Security offerings to enable customers to secure any application on any cloud. Customers who want to leverage Oracle Cloud Infrastructure’s high performance computing power to host their web and ERP applications and want to expand their security offerings to include Fortinet can now enjoy the benefits of FortiWeb Cloud’s machine-learning enabled web application firewall and API protection, delivered on the same cloud infrastructure where their applications reside. With machine learning, bot mitigation, API protection, and CDN capabilities built in, FortiWeb Cloud delivers a full web application and API protection (WAAP) solution that can streamline your security operations and accelerate the transformation of your business with Oracle Cloud Infrastructure.
When you subscribe to FortiWeb Cloud to further protect your web applications on Oracle Cloud Infrastructure, FortiWeb Cloud scrubs your web application and API traffic using multi-tenant scrubbing centers deployed in OCI. Whether you’re looking for protection against the OWASP Top 10 to meet compliance requirements such as PCI-DSS, need to defend against sophisticated attackers employing the latest zero-day exploits, or require security for your internet-facing web APIs, FortiWeb Cloud on Oracle Cloud offers the protection your business-critical applications require. And because the solution is delivered on the same cloud infrastructure where you host your application, the solution minimizes latency, maximizes performance, and addresses the potential for regulatory complications that using an external WAF as a Service might introduce.
Organizations increasingly rely on web applications for the full range of line-of-business applications: interacting with customers, enhancing collaboration and productivity, managing data and workflows, and putting critical information and services at everyone’s fingertips. The use of DevOps methodologies to rapidly and continuously deploy the latest code means that these applications evolve at a rapid pace, and so does their attack surface. To roll out new applications and capabilities to support your key business initiatives, you need security solutions that are both easy to manage and easy to deploy. That’s where FortiWeb Cloud powered by Oracle Cloud Infrastructure can help, complementing Oracle’s native security offerings.
Some of the key benefits from using FortiWeb Cloud WAF as a Service include:
Protecting your applications deployed on Oracle Cloud with FortiWeb Cloud enables your organization to enjoy the benefits of a cloud-native SaaS web application and API solution provisioned in the same region as your application, providing low latency, a simplified regulatory environment, and reduced bandwidth costs. It also enables your DevOps team to take full advantage of the agility of the public cloud while relieving them of routine security maintenance and management tasks. As a result, full-featured web application security can now be deployed with minimal configuration and management, allowing your organization to proactively participate in today’s digital marketplace and business environment without ever compromising performance, agility, or security.
