Provides secure application mobility and consistent policies across enterprise hybrid clouds

Dubai, UAE, September 13, 2017 – Fortinet® (NASDAQ: FTNT), the global leader in high-performance cybersecurity solutions, today announced that its FortiGate Virtual Machine (VM) is available to customers of VMware Cloud™ on AWS.

Initial availability in AWS US West Region (Oregon), VMware Cloud on AWS brings together VMware's enterprise-class Software-Defined Data Center (SDDC) software and elastic, bare-metal infrastructure from Amazon Web Services (AWS) to give organizations a consistent operating model and application mobility for private and public cloud.
The FortiGate VM enables an existing VMware-based private cloud to securely extend to the public cloud with site-to-site connectivity, cross-cloud segmentation, and consistent security policies for customers of VMware Cloud on AWS.

John Maddison, senior vice president of products and solutions at Fortinet

“Enterprises are increasingly adopting hybrid cloud architectures, integrating on-premises private clouds with advanced public cloud resources to take advantage of the scale and performance benefits, yet consistent security is a top priority. VMware and Fortinet have a long-standing relationship delivering virtualized security for software-defined data centers, and today we are extending our collaboration to VMware Cloud on AWS customers to provide the security control, visibility and segmentation capabilities required to seamlessly transition to hybrid cloud environments.”

Seamlessly Extend Security Policy Visibility with FortiGate VM on VMware Cloud on AWS

As enterprises transition to hybrid cloud infrastructure, 51-percent of recent survey respondents indicate that security remains a top challenge. FortiGate VMs provide VMware Cloud on AWS users with a combination of advanced threat intelligence from FortiGuard Labs with the industry leading security operating system, FortiOS, delivering complete security control, workload visibility and management across physical, virtual and cloud environments. Enterprises can now move workloads from the data center to the AWS public cloud securely without jeopardizing policy visibility.

Fortinet virtualized security has long been available to global enterprises and service providers running VMware vSphere, providing visibility into east-west traffic in virtualized data centers and private clouds. With FortiGate VM for VMware Cloud on AWS, organizations can expand their on-premise network to AWS with secure site-to-site VPN connectivity and Fortinet Security Fabric visibility capabilities for application mobility. Organizations can ensure that an application running on vSphere has the same security posture throughout the hybrid cloud, regardless of whether the application is on-premises or in VMware Cloud on AWS, while providing proper segmentation of users and data between clouds.

VMware Cloud on AWS technology partners enable customers to deploy the same proven solutions seamlessly in both the public and private cloud. VMware simplifies the deployment and eliminates the need for partners to refactor solutions for VMware Cloud on AWS. If a partner solution works on-premises in a VMware vSphere® environment, it will easily support VMware Cloud on AWS. VMware technology partners complement and enhance native VMware Cloud on AWS service and enable customers to realize new capabilities.

“VMware Cloud on AWS provides customers a seamlessly integrated hybrid cloud offering that gives customers the SDDC experience from the leader in private cloud, running on the leading public cloud provider, AWS,” said Mark Lohmeyer, vice president, products, Cloud Platforms Business Unit, VMware. “Solutions such as FortiGate VM enable IT teams to reduce cost, increase efficiency and create operational consistency across cloud environments. We're excited to work with partners such as Fortinet to enhance native VMware Cloud on AWS capabilities and empower customers with flexibility and choice in solutions that can drive business value.”
