Private Cloud Security

Advanced Security for Private Cloud, SDN, and Virtualization Platforms

Key Use Cases and Strategies for Private Cloud
Private Cloud Security banner background banner dots

Overview

Virtualization and software-defined network (SDN) security are rapidly transforming data centers into agile, innovative, software-defined, and cost-effective private clouds. Yet, security is often an afterthought when it comes to private cloud deployments. Traditional security cannot keep up with these new environments, creating security gaps or manual security processes that negate the benefits of virtualization and SDN firewalls. Private cloud requires a software-defined approach to security due to the lack of visibility posed by east-west traffic and virtualized services.  Private cloud and software-defined data center (SDDC) assets need advanced protection from evolving threats, both known and unknown.

North-South Advanced L7 Security Protection

Organizations expanding their networks to accommodate the rapid deployment of data center-based services may often discover a strain on the security architecture’s ability to handle a subsequently growing security threat landscape. Implementing a virtual next-generation firewall with FortiGate-VM in the virtualized data center or private cloud provides extensive visibility and control of the infrastructure. FortiGate-VM automatically provisions and scales security, and has broad support for leading hypervisors, software-defined networks (SDNs) and cloud platforms. It provides advanced Layer 7 protection for north-south traffic in virtualized data centers.

Intent-Based Segmentation: East-West Advanced L7 Security Protection

Microsegmentation is a method of creating secure zones in data centers and cloud deployments that allows companies to isolate workloads from one another and secure them individually. Virtualization and SDN increase east-west traffic in software-defined data centers (SDDC), and poor visibility into traffic between VMs increases risk from security breaches. FortiGate-VM provides microsegmentation and control of east-west traffic in the SDDC, for workload isolation and application-aware security policy. It allows granular policy segmentation and isolation across clustered resources to provide visibility across the entire SDDC infrastructure.

Security Virtual Network Function (VNF)

Service providers need to deliver security services as virtual network functions both on-premises and in cloud. VNF handles specific network functions that run on one or more VMs on top of the hardware-networking infrastructure. Individual VNFs can be connected or combined together as building blocks to offer a full-scale networking communication service. Fortinet’s security VNF is deployed as an uCPE on-premises edge, or vCPE hosted in data center/cloud. FortiGate-VM is a small footprint security VNF with consolidated networking and security. It provides full application layer security with next-generation firewall, Intrusion prevention, AV, web filtering, and embedded Secure SD-WAN. VNF orchestration and service chaining is done via partner orchestrators such as Amdocs, Nuage, OpenStack, and others.

Compliance and Regulatory Requirements

Achieving regulatory compliance with regulation mandates such as PCI DSS, HIPPA, SOX, and GDPR can be a complex and time-consuming burden. Security or governance issues force organizations into using a private cloud. Certain countries require that application data pertaining to people in a particular locale remain within the country. For a broader view of compliance across cloud platforms, FortiSIEM can create compliance reports at the push of a button. FortiAnalyzer provides a closed-loop compliance-gap mitigation and collects fabric logs, while FortiManager enables customers to audit, review, approve, and implement changes from a central place. The benefits are automated compliance auditing and reporting on-premises, in the data center, and in the cloud.
