Fortinet Security Fabric supports these use cases for Microsoft Azure security:
Businesses need seamless security orchestration that scales along with cloud workloads. The Fortinet Security Fabric includes next-generation firewalls (NGFWs) that compliment native Azure security functions while supporting secured and encrypted connectivity across every flavor of cloud infrastructure. They can be managed from either a public cloud deployment or on-premises in a private data center.
Advanced Threat Protection
An increasingly essential percentage of modern business applications are deployed over public cloud infrastructures. At the same time, web and mail applications are responsible for the highest number of breaches per pattern. The Fortinet Security Fabric for Azure includes solutions designed to protect these kinds of business-critical applications from known and zero-day attacks by leveraging Security Fabric solutions such as FortiWeb, FortiMail and FortiSandbox
Secure Access VPN
The Fortinet Security Fabric delivers best-in-class performance for securing VPN traffic for remote access VPN in Azure. By leveraging Azure's multi-region global infrastructure, organizations can instantaneously scale their services globally and offer remote access VPN termination close to the end user. Remote access VPN can be used to enable access to cloud-based applications as well as on premises applications that are connected to the cloud over other forms of private links or VPN.
Cloud Services Hub (vNET)
Cloud-provider connectivity far outperforms that of the typical mid-sized enterprise. An Azure-based virtual network (vNET) allows organizations to share security services to multiple networks worldwide. By leveraging the extent of the Fortinet’s solutions—including network visibility, VPN connectivity, next generation firewall (NGFW), advanced web application firewall, sandboxing, and mail security—the Security Fabric provides far more services while leveraging cloud elasticity and on-demand scalability for optimized price/performance.
Securing Office 365
Due to the high attachment rate of Office 365 with Azure cloud deployments, alongside the fact that most threats find their way into organizations via email, the need to secure Office 365-based email and business applications is as high as ever. The combination of FortiMail, FortiSandbox, and FortiCASB provides critical capabilities when securing Office 365. In particular, the Security Fabric enables deep visibility into mail messages for protection from zero-day threats and monitoring of the Office 365 API layer.
