Cloud Security Posture Management & Workload Protection

Get control of your public cloud infrastructure here is why
 Cloud Security Posture Management & Workload Protection banner background banner dots


Organizations are embracing multiple public cloud platforms, resulting in increased complexity of management which impacts security and risk. Additionally, the built-in security tools that come with various cloud platforms are unique to each, compounding the challenge of consistently managing risk across all clouds in a multi-cloud world. This challenge renders security operations time consuming and ineffective. As the attack surface expands, organizations need to protect from not only from risks of configuration and management of the application elements themselves, but also from risks originating via cloud application programming interfaces (APIs) and UIs.

FortiCWP offers security administrators and DevOps teams the ability to evaluate their cloud configuration security posture, detect potential threats originating from misconfiguration of cloud resources, analyze traffic across cloud resources (in and out of the cloud), and evaluate cloud configuration against best practices. It enables the ability to manage risk throughout multi-cloud infrastructures, provides regulatory compliance reporting, and integrates remediation into the cloud infrastructure lifecycle automation framework.

As cloud adoption accelerates, organizations are increasingly reliant on cloud-based services and infrastructures. Yet, organizations often end up with a heterogeneous set of technologies in use, with disparate security controls in various cloud environments. Fortinet's cloud security solutions provide the necessary visibility and control across cloud infrastructures, enabling secure applications and connectivity from data center to cloud.

Risk Management

Continuous configuration assessments and risk analysis presents actionable information enabling security teams to focus on the highest priority issues, take quick remediation actions, and automatically fix known configuration errors to manage and mitigate risk. Protect public clouds including: Amazon S3, Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud, Amazon EKS, IBM Identity and Access Manager roles, and more.

  • Reduce risk with central visibility and control in distributed/multi-cloud environments.
  • Prioritize vulnerabilities based on individual risk score.

Data Security

FortiCWP analyzes configurations, files, and documents in cloud storage services to identify and monitor insecure configurations, sensitive data, and malware. By drilling down to document profiles from generated alerts, customers can monitor and analyze sensitive data activity to investigate data leakage in their environment.

  • Identify sensitive data, assess data leakage, and discover misconfigurations across the cloud environment.
  • Assess risk by drilling down to document profiles from alerts to investigate data leakage and misconfigurations. 

Traffic Analysis and Investigation

Obtain comprehensive visibility into all network resource topologies. FortiCWP also identifies and monitors network traffic for attacks, with drill-down capabilities on resource profiles. It provides contextual understanding of the cloud environment, helping eliminate blind spots, reduce incident response time, and analyze incident impact to improve security posture. 

Gain complete visibility and visualize Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) environments to:

  • Quickly implement effective control and security policies.
  • Protect resources against inside or outside threats in major public cloud infrastructures.

Threat Detection and Response

Continuously monitor/track all security activity, including configurations, user activity, traffic flow logs, and data storage in public cloud environments. Predefined policies detect any potential risk such as: malicious traffic, suspicious user activity, vulnerability configuration, and sensitive data leaks and malware. 

  • Detect complex threats and user activity in public cloud environments.
  • Identify suspicious host/IP and provide details on violated policies.
  • Rapid response to identified threats based on contextual alerts.


For organizations operating in a highly regulated industry, FortiCWP provides out-of-the-box policies for standards and mandates, and allows organizations to quickly generate compliance reports for auditing teams so they can identify policy violations and take necessary remedial actions. 

  • Enhanced visibility and control maintains historical snapshots of public cloud environments.
  • Continuous monitoring of security and compliance assessment policies.
  • Comprehensive reporting to stay compliant and reduce risk.
