Alibaba Cloud and Fortinet announced the expansion of the Fortinet Security Fabric offerings and new automation capabilities for Alibaba Cloud to provide streamlined and consistent security for organizations with hybrid cloud infrastructures.
The combination of both the companies will offer organizations with the ability to extend security visibility and control from the data center to the cloud and the ability to ensure that organizations employ consistent security policies no matter where their applications are deployed.
By implementing the offering, the users can apply consistent security policies throughout their hybrid infrastructures and can realize multi-layer security protection and operational benefits for running applications on Alibaba Cloud. Sodexo and Fung Group are among global customers.
The extended collaboration with Fortinet addresses this concern as it leverages Fortinet’s breadth of cloud security offerings that are part of the Fortinet Security Fabric.
The Additional Benefits of the Partnership includes:
- Native Integration: Fortinet’s security solution will natively integrate with Alibaba Cloud for seamless integration with workloads running in Alibaba Cloud. As a Fortinet Fabric-Ready Partner, the company will integrate its APIs with the Fortinet Security Fabric to provide more consistent and effective end-to-end security to end-users.
- Broad Protection: The offering includes a broad range of Fortinet security offerings including, FortiGateVM, FortiWeb, FortiManager, FortiAnalyzer and Fabric Connectors. These solutions address a broad set of use cases including protecting cloud workloads, securing hybrid cloud and cloud-based security management.
- Management and Automation: With the expanded integration, Alibaba Cloud’s security functionalities can be managed through the Fortinet Security Management tools across both Alibaba Cloud and on-premises deployments to streamline security operations. Customers can leverage automation capabilities provided by the Fortinet Security Fabric, leveraging APIs and stitches, for example, to further streamline and automate operations.
Fortinet’s cloud security solutions are available on Alibaba Cloud Marketplace or can be purchased from a Fortinet channel partner providing customers with the flexibility of purchasing only on demand or owning a license that is transferrable across platforms.
