Virtualization and SDN are rapidly transforming data centers into agile, innovative, and cost-effective private clouds. Unfortunately, if your security is an afterthought and can’t keep up with these fast, flexible environments, there can be protection gaps or manual security processes that negate the advantages of network virtualization and SDN.
Our SDN security framework delivers security built for these networks. It defines security evolution across the network architecture. It evolves network security in each conceptual layer of network architecture: the data plane, control plane, and management plane.
As an innovator and leader in data center security appliances, we also offer the largest range of virtual appliances that provide better visibility and control of virtual network traffic with industry-leading scalability, performance, and value. Virtual appliances also facilitate elasticity, automation, and orchestration of the virtual machine form factor.
Fortinet provides out-of-the-box integration with leading orchestration platforms such as VMware NSX, Cisco ACI, and OpenStack Neutron, as well as rich API extensibility, so that security policy can be seamlessly applied in logical and dynamic environments.
Fortinet’s software-defined security solution is certified by leading SDN and Network Function Virtualization (NFV) platforms and can be applied to any data center cloud environment.
