Fortinet has joined hands with Equinix in order to provide enterprises with mature, scalable and reliable security solutions across multiple cloud architectures. As part of this association, Fortinet will be clubbing its security solutions with Equinix Cloud Exchange.
Speaking about the association, Chris Sharp, vice president of cloud innovation at Equinix, said, “As more and more enterprise customers incorporate cloud deployments into their overall infrastructure, there is a fundamental effect on how network security is designed and deployed. As businesses move more and more sensitive data to cloud infrastructures, the addition of Fortinet’s proven, carrier-class solutions to our Cloud Exchange will enable large global customers to deploy a robust virtualized security infrastructure without compromising performance.”
On the other hand, Rajesh Maurya, Country Manager, India & SAARC, for Fortinet, commented, “Our FortiPrivate Cloud and FortiGate and cloud/SaaS management solutions offer the unique ability to integrate seamlessly into the Equinix Cloud Exchange. Combined, they offer a significant opportunity for customers to pick cloud services best suited for their respective applications, workloads, and business needs. Security is the top of mind for anyone moving to more efficient — yet more complex — cloud environments. We are excited to offer Equinix Cloud Exchange customers the peace of mind in knowing that their critical assets are continually being protected, regardless of their cloud environments.”
