Fortinet® (NASDAQ: FTNT), a global leader in broad, integrated and automated cybersecurity solutions, has announced the expansion of its Fortinet Security Fabric offerings and new automation capabilities for Amazon Web Services (AWS) to provide streamlined and consistent security management for hybrid infrastructures. New offerings are grouped into the following categories:

 

  • New Management and Automation Capabilities: Fortinet now facilitates a more streamlined and automated rollout of security services that are designed to be less prone to human error with new automation templates, FortiCASB configuration assessments and web application firewall (WAF) rulesets for Amazon API Gateway.

 

  • Containers, AWS Security Hub, and Broad Protection: On top of the existing broad set of Fortinet security offerings on AWS, Fortinet has also announced support for AWS Security Hub. Fortinet now also offers FortiWeb Web Application Firewall in AWS Container Marketplace, enhancing multi-layer security protection at the API level, the VM level and the container level for applications running on AWS.

 

  • Native Integration for DevOps Teams: New Fortinet WAF rules for API Gateway, Quick Start guides for initial deployment and support for AWS Transit Gateway help DevOps teams more easily integrate security into their automated application lifecycle routines.

 

  • Access to Cloud Offerings Via Partners: Fortinet has been named one of the few vendors selling solutions on the AWS Marketplace to participate in the AWS Consulting Partner Private Offer program. Participation in this program allows Fortinet partners to easily provide AWS customers with best-of-breed Fortinet security solutions for their cloud applications.

 

 

The rapid deployment of new applications and introduction of new services on AWS require DevOps and IT teams to integrate security into everything they do as quickly as possible so as not to stifle the pace of innovation. This is no small task that requires both time and resources. To help organizations keep up with this pace, Fortinet is introducing new solutions and more automation in its security offerings on AWS Marketplace.

 

With new automation templates, FortiCASB configuration assessments, and WAF rulesets on Amazon API Gateway, users who used to have to manually build automation scripts for integrating and configuring security for their applications on AWS can now leverage these automated pre-packaged best practice templates for quick and reliable security visibility.

 

Fortinet now leverages security intelligence from AWS Security Hub to help customers form a consistent on- and off-cloud security posture view. AWS Security Hub provides users with a comprehensive view of their high-priority security alerts and compliance status by aggregating, organizing, and prioritizing alerts, or findings, from multiple AWS services, such as Amazon GuardDuty, Amazon Inspector, and Amazon Macie as well as from other APN security solutions. The findings are then visually summarized on integrated dashboards with actionable graphs and tables.

 

Fortinet has also announced support for containers via the FortiWeb Web Application Firewall on the AWS Container Marketplace. Customers can now enhance their multi-layer security protection by leveraging FortiWeb to secure container-based web applications and integrating WAF into their container-based application PODs, providing consistent security onto rapidly provisioned services. With this announcement, Fortinet provides an additional layer of security for the cloud at the API level, the VM level, and the container level.

 

DevOps teams can also now utilize native integration with AWS via new Fortinet WAF rulesets for API Gateway, quick start guides for initial deployment and integration with AWS Transit Gateway. With these new features, DevOps teams can save time and resources by quickly integrating security best practices into their automated application lifecycle routines.

 

Fortinet has also joined the AWS Consulting Partner Private Offer ecosystem. With this, Fortinet channel partners are now a part of AWS’ on-demand ecosystem and will be natively ingrained to the new AWS selling process, allowing them to more naturally facilitate their customers’ journey to the cloud.

 

The new offerings and capabilities indeed allow AWS users the ability to natively introduce best-of-breed multi-layer security into their application lifecycle routines and workflows, significantly mitigate risk and provide even more peace of mind when deploying applications on the cloud. The Fortinet Security Fabric provides a broad set of cloud security use cases. By implementing the Fortinet Security Fabric on AWS, customers can apply consistent security policies throughout their hybrid infrastructures and can realize multi-layer security protection and operational benefits for running applications on AWS.

 

AWS is a member of the Fortinet Fabric-Ready Partner program, a premium category of Fortinet’s technology alliance collaborations and a vital part of the Fortinet Security Fabric. This program allows Fortinet and third-party products to better integrate their respective solutions in order to provide more consistent and effective end-to-end security.
