Fortinet secures the migration to multi-cloud with native integration, broad protection and management and automation capabilities for every cloud environment
Fortinet stated in its release that organizations confidently rely on Fortinet’s multi-cloud security solutions to ensure that applications and/or workloads have consistent security across physical, virtual and cloud footprints and can be centrally managed a private cloud, public cloud, hybrid cloud or on-premises.
Migrating workloads and applications to cloud environments, building cloud native applications and consuming SaaS applications have many benefits for organizations but this transition also raises security concerns that if left unaddressed can be detrimental and offset these benefits.
Fortinet’s depth and breadth of multi-cloud security products and solutions addresses the problem by offering the following solutions:
Visibility and control: Fortinet’s FortiCASB-Cloud allows customers to leverage the public cloud management APIs to monitor activity and configuration of multiple cloud resources as well as eliminate blind spots across an expanding attack surface. It continuously evaluates configurations across regions and public cloud types while dynamically analyzing activity in the public cloud infrastructure to identify potentially malicious activities. FortiCASB-Cloud dashboards are pluggable into Fortinet Security Fabric FortiView. Through FortiView dashboards, administrators can see both inline security as well as cloud configuration security to build a comprehensive view of risk.
Application security:.Fortinet provides advanced application layer security controls so customers can choose cloud platforms based on their business priorities, not security limitations. Through FortiWeb-VM, customers are able to secure web APIs and front-end web application to protect from known and unknown threats. FortiWeb is easy to use and delivers high accuracy powered by on-device machine learning capabilities, as well as the flexibility of form factors from containers to virtual machines to SaaS.
Secure connectivity: As organizations deploy an array of cloud infrastructure and shift towards multi-cloud, secure connectivity across these various environments is critical to protect sensitive information and confidential communication. FortiGate-VM provides the most flexible and scalable offerings in the industry supporting small point workload connectivity designed to scale out. It also supports larger data connections that require a scale-up VPN connection to multiple Gbps of VPN traffic. FortiGate-VM’s virtual security processor (vSPU) technology accelerates performance in both private and public clouds, enabling customers to confidently migrate their high-performing applications to the cloud.
Key benefits that customers gain from leveraging the Fortinet Security Fabric for multi-cloud are:
- Consistent security controls and policies regardless of application infrastructure.
- Single-pane-of-glass visibility for multi-cloud security to comprehensively manage risk in a dynamic and diverse environment.
- The ability to leverage existing security personnel skill set when securing the cloud.
- The confidence to deploy any application on any cloud supporting the desired business velocity and choices.
