Our FortiGate VM for VMware Cloud on AWS features the identical FortiOS firmware and FortiGuard security services that are delivered for other hypervisors and public clouds.  But because the hybrid cloud raises additional security considerations – issues that we’ve been talking about with customers for more than a year - a major offering like VMware Cloud on AWS really brings those requirements into sharp focus.

Securing Next-Generation Data Centers

Data Centers are undergoing the most radical transformation since they were first created. For decades, they were walled off and isolated vaults containing some of an organization’s most valued assets. Only a handful of data center shamans were authorized to query that data center for information. It’s no coincidence that that largest data center vendor in the world is named Oracle.

The Best of Both Worlds - How Fortinet is Securing Your Data Center

With each passing day, enterprise networks are evolving. It started with the advent of virtualization, when companies realized that they don’t need a single server per application. Ever since, there has been a consistent march towards the purely virtual data center. While networks are evolving, so are the threats they face on a day-to-day basis. Building a defense using a perimeter firewall is as futile as defending a castle today using a moat. While it can prevent the causal hacker or trespasser, it does little to nothing to protect against...
