Fortinet Solutions for AWS Security

Many enterprises are turning to AWS to build new applications, extend internal data centers, and ultimately take advantage of the elasticity of the public cloud. While AWS security covers its infrastructure, customers are responsible for protecting everything they build and store within it.

Fortinet accelerates the journey to AWS with purpose-built cloud security. Fortinet dynamic cloud security solutions protect workloads and business applications across on-premises data centers and cloud environments—with multilayer security for cloud-based applications. Organizations can achieve: a consolidated view of their security posture, a single console for policy management and governance reporting, and event monitoring regardless of physical, virtual, or cloud infrastructure, and across private, public, and hybrid clouds.

Fortinet offers Software-as-a-Service (SaaS), virtual machine (VM), container, and API-based protection that delivers natively integrated security functionality that complements AWS services such as GuardDuty, Security Hub, and AWS Outposts. Supporting the broadest set of use cases, Fortinet products offer comprehensive security for AWS workloads including firewall, security gateway, intrusion prevention, and web application security.

FortiWeb Cloud WAF-as-a-Service

FortiWeb Cloud WAF-as-a-Service is a Security-as-a-Service SaaS cloud-based web application firewall (WAF) that protects public cloud-hosted web applications from the OWASP Top 10, zero-day threats, and other application layer attacks.

Requiring no hardware or software, the FortiWeb colony of WAF gateways can run in most AWS regions. This allows organizations to scrub application traffic within the same region their applications reside, addressing performance and regulation concerns, as well as keeping traffic cost to a minimum.
