WeLab Uses Fortinet on AWS to Build Virtual Bank and Ensure Compliance

“We needed high-end security capabilities even though we weren’t an enterprise-scale company. Fortinet was able to deliver a solution, based on AWS, to boost our size and supplement our in-house staff.”

– Eddie Tse, Deputy Chief Technology Officer, WeLab Bank


WeLab is a FinTech company that provides online financial services to more than 42 million individual users and more than 300 corporate users in Hong Kong, Mainland China, and Indonesia. In preparing to launch a virtual bank quickly and efficiently, WeLab sought the agility and scalability of the Amazon Web Services (AWS) cloud. Recognizing the need for robust security for its AWS environment, the bank wanted to minimize the staff and training required to implement and maintain cloud security.

In Fortinet, WeLab found the optimal balance of comprehensive cloud-native solutions and ease of deployment and management. Learn more about how WeLab is confidently expanding its cloud-based financial offerings in this case study.
