11th November 2013 | By Mouseworld Now Correspondent |

New Delhi, India, November 11, 2013: Fortinet, a global player in high-performance network security, has announced an expansion of its firewall and risk management network security ecosystem by officially announcing partnerships with AlgoSec, FireMon, ManageEngine, Skybox Security and Tufin. This ecosystem gives Fortinet customers and resellers a broad choice of solutions providers when it comes to risk mitigation and security management process optimization. Fortinet’s firewall and risk management security ecosystem is designed for service providers, MSSPs and enterprises with multiple firewalls to manage, and it provides the tools and capabilities that facilitate the management and risk mitigation of disparate security devices.

The AlgoSec Security Management Suite delivers an automated and application-centric solution for managing complex policies across firewalls and related security infrastructure to improve both security and business agility. The AlgoSec Suite bridges traditional gaps between security, network and application teams by combining AlgoSec BusinessFlow, FireFlow and Firewall Analyzer to streamline security operations and change management, ensure continuous compliance, maximize datacenter application availability, and deliver a tighter security policy that offers better protection against cyber-attacks.

FireMon’s Security Manager platform helps organizations automate operations and find, correct and ultimately avoid gaps in their existing network security infrastructure. By automating firewall rule clean up and change process workflow, security teams get and keep their firewalls under control and harden their first line of defense. They now have time to proactively find gaps, like locating and quantifying reachable vulnerabilities and immediately remediating those that pose the greatest risks. This gives security decision makers real-time management and operations data for effective decision making to reduce risk, provide appropriate levels of access and make operations more efficient.

ManageEngine’s network security products enable IT managers to deliver an optimum end-user experience and harness IT to achieve business efficiencies in the face of increasing complexity. From a network security perspective, the company’s products identify vulnerabilities, secure the boundary, monitor and analyze policies, log data and configuration changes to alert on internal and external security threats. The products provide a real-time, single-pane-of-glass.

Skybox Security provides cutting-edge risk analytics for cyber security, giving security teams the visibility and actionable intelligence they need to eliminate attack vectors and safeguard business data and services. Skybox Security’s risk analytics platform provides a context-aware view of the network that drives effective firewall management, continuous compliance monitoring, and vulnerability and threat management. With no disruption to the network, Skybox solutions prioritize the most critical risks in minutes and provide detailed remediation options. Additionally, security teams can use Skybox solutions to automate complex security management processes and eliminate attack vectors, filtering out irrelevant data and delivering accurate results in a fraction of the time.

Tufin provides security policy orchestration solutions that automate and accelerate network infrastructure changes while maintaining security and compliance. By automating network change processes, organizations using the Tufin Security Policy Orchestration Suite can reduce the time and cost spent on implementing network changes by up to 80 percent. Taking a holistic view of IT, Tufin’s Security Policy Orchestration Suite helps organizations automate security and efficiency into day-to-day operations, enabling them to be more agile and leverage technology to gain a competitive advantage.

Vishak Raman, Senior Regional Director, India & SAARC at Fortinet, said, “AlgoSec, FireMon, ManageEngine, Skybox and Tufin improve the operational and managerial efficiency of our network security platform. Today’s announcement reinforces our commitment to high level integration and compatibility with the network security products and technologies used by our customers.”
