Comprehensive cloud security offerings enable centralized management of security operations and automation of Amazon Web Services workloads 

Dubai UAE – December 6, 2017 - Fortinet® (NASDAQ: FTNT), a global leader in high-performance cybersecurity solutions, today announced that it has extended its virtualized Security Fabric applications to Amazon Web Services (AWS) customers with a broad set of solutions that can be managed through a centralized console.  

Fortinet achieves AWS Security Competency status, which highlights AWS Partner Network (APN) partners who have demonstrated technical success and proven customer adoption in providing security solutions on AWS. With Fortinet, AWS customers can now better identify and protect applications and data from cyber-attacks and other advanced threats vectors.
FortiSandbox is now available as Pay-As-You-Go On Demand in AWS Marketplace and provides a cloud-based malware sandbox that automatically analyzes suspicious programs and offers detection against zero-day threats for applications and data hosted on AWS.
FortiSIEM, AWS-integrated security information and event management solution, is available now as BYOL in AWS Marketplace, delivering comprehensive visibility and analytics of both security and network operations for a holistic view of threat data across an organization.
Fortinet also announced that it has expanded its Fabric-Ready Partner Program with Amazon Web Services.

“One of the many advantages of the cloud is on-demand infrastructure and services. Security needs to be the same with consistent policies, performance and visibility that can scale across multi-cloud networks, without reducing control.” Said John Maddison, senior vice president of products and solutions at Fortinet. “To keep pace with these evolving infrastructure requirements, Fortinet has extended its Security Fabric virtualized solutions to AWS customers, from sandbox capabilities, to centralized performance and compliance management. Having one cloud security provider to protect all types of workloads running on AWS ensures that customers benefit from a single security management console, with consistent updates and licensing models across all their cloud security applications.”

Centralized Management of Security Operations and Automation for AWS Workloads

As organizations adopt cloud environments, the need for consistent security policies, visibility and control is imperative. Point security devices need to be replaced with integrated tools that can see and operate consistently within and across multi-vendor ecosystems without ever having to compromise protection for performance. According to Gartner, “by 2018, the 60% of enterprises that implement appropriate cloud visibility and control tools will experience one-third fewer security failures.” *

Through its latest collaborations with AWS, Fortinet is providing a suite of security solutions that provide a single management console with unified updates to simplify operations and safeguard against threats across various enterprise applications. The offerings span cloud sandbox capabilities and SIEM, to centralized performance and compliance management.

The attack surface is dynamic on the cloud. With the latest integrations of FortiSandbox and FortiSIEM, AWS customers can benefit from multi-layered security with integrated FortiGuard Threat Intelligence, advanced analytics and a single pane of glass view of security and network activities.

FortiSandbox emulates end-user operating environments and automatically executes suspicious code to better protect organizations against potential attacks. With incident objects forwarding directly from FortiMail or FortiWeb, FortiSandbox technology on AWS helps reduce the false-positive or false-negative alert noise in typical security tools. It focuses resources on active threat mitigation by sharing real-time updates to disrupt threats at the origin. FortiSIEM works in lockstep to provide a holistic view of network and security operations on the cloud and delivers actionable analytics that manage network security, performance and compliance standards all delivered through a single management console.

In addition to FortiSandbox and FortiSIEM, Fortinet Security Fabric virtualized solutions are available now in the AWS Marketplace, including FortiGate Enterprise Firewalls, FortiWeb web application firewalls, FortiMail for secure mail gateway, FortiManager for centralized cloud security management, and FortiAnalyzer for centralized network logging, analytics and reporting.

“As use of the cloud gained momentum, it was clear that continuing to rely on conventional on-premise measures for protection would not be sufficient. We saw the opportunity to create a more intelligent, cloud-based, distributed strategy that would alleviate the vulnerabilities for clients. Implementing Fortinet's FortiAnalyzer on AWS was a key element of our evolving cloud-based model. The virtual appliance provided rich log data and analytics to ensure that we maintain an optimal security posture and assures ongoing regulatory compliance.”

- Brian Thomas, chief technology officer at Security7 Networks
