Security Fabric Solutions for Public Clouds Overview

Public clouds have become very popular due to their ability to provide elastic and scalable infrastructure for applications, storage, and data. These capabilities change the way the world does business. When organizations choose to consume infrastructure as a service (IaaS) by leading cloud providers such as Amazon Web Services (AWS), Microsoft Azure, and Google Cloud Platform (GCP), network security needs to be thought of differently than when security was solely on premises. Even though the cloud provider’s infrastructure is secured by the cloud provider, organizations are required to implement security controls protecting the applications and data they put into that cloud infrastructure. This must meet or exceed their on-premises security postures.

By leveraging Fortinet Security Fabric Enabled Solutions, organizations can implement optimal cloud application workload security throughout their public cloud and hybrid cloud application deployment. Fortinet secures workloads in public clouds to ensure privacy and confidentiality while leveraging the cloud benefits of scalability, metering, and time-to-market.

Security Fabric Use Cases:

Security in the cloud is intended to increase the organizations confidence to deploy applications in the cloud and by such improve overall organizational agility and ability to respond to market demand. By leveraging Fortinet’s Security Fabric solutions to deploy use case driven security capabilities, organizations benefit from market leading security with streamlined management functionality. Following is a set of common deployment scenarios of Fortinet’s Security Fabric:


Cloud Services Hub

Cloud Services Hub



Organizations can build remote access VPN termination points in the cloud and leverage the global presence of large-scale cloud providers.  This FortiGate-based solution applies both when applications reside in the cloud, as well as when applications reside on-premises.  On-premises applications are commonly connnected to the cloud over IPsec VPN tunnels. 


hybrid cloud

Hybrid Cloud


For web applications and mail servers, the combinations of FortiGate, FortiWeb, FortiMail, and FortiSandbox offer unique in-depth protection. This solution offers capabilities that help organizations comply with regulatory and security requirements such as PCI, SOX, GLBA, or HIPAA. Additionally, these capabilities help with relieving the need to constantly apply patches to web servers and reduce the risk from advanced threats.


Security Management from the cloud

Security management from the cloud

Organizations can leverage a cloud-based virtual network to provide shared services to cloud and on-premises networks. Networks and applications that are independently developed and operated by different organizational units (Line of Business) and connected to the Cloud Services Hub over a VPN connection can utilize shared services such as application based firewalling, application communication protection, context and application aware web application firewalls (WAF), Email security, and Sandbox based advanced threat protection services, which can all be managed from the cloud.


Remove access VPN

Remote Access VPN

This solution outlines the various scenarios enterprise organizations may encounter in which they are required to connect a variety of on-premises data center-based services to cloud-based services in order to deliver enterprise applications to customers and employees. FortiGate VPN functionality is available for both on- and off-cloud deployments, offering enterprises a secure and seamless operation of applications across a variety of infrastructures.


Advanced application protection
