18th April 2017 | By Mouseworld Now Correspondent |

Fortinet-logoBangalore, India, April 18, 2017: Fortinet (NASDAQ: FTNT), a leading cyber-security solutions provider today said that it has extended the performance, automation, visibilty and management of the Fortinet Security Fabric into all types of cloud environments, spanning private and public Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) clouds to Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) applications.

Rajesh Maurya, Regional Vice President, India & SAARC, Fortinet, said
“Companies are building out flexible and scalable infrastructure with the use of private and public clouds. As such, maintaining a strong and consistent security posture is essential. Fortinet is enhancing its security capabilities across private, infrastructure and application (SaaS) clouds through its Security Fabric. This ranges from increased scalability, new public cloud features and SaaS visibility via a new CASB offering, delivering optimal security performance at cloud-scale.”

Fortinet offers cloud security scale, performance and value for private and public clouds with expanded virtualized FortiGate capacities. Enabling enterprises to pay for cloud security as needed, Fortinet solutions are now available on-demand in the Microsoft Azure Marketplace.

Optimizing automation of public cloud deployments, FortiGate delivers enhanced auto-scaling and orchestration capabilities for AWS workloads, both on-demand and bring-your-own-license (BYOL). The new Fortinet VM On-Demand pay-as-you-go licensing program for cloud providers and MSSPs comes with flexible pricing and automation options for end customers.

FortiCASB is a new cloud access security broker service for on and off-network visibility and control of Office 365 and other SaaS applications. The solution helps reduce the Attack Surface from IoT to the Cloud through Visibility and Control.

A recent survey by ESG Research reveals that 62% of cybersecurity professionals say it is difficult to get the same level of visibility into cloud-based workloads as they have on their physical networks, while 56% state that their organization’s current network security operations and processes lacks the right level of automation and orchestration needed for the cloud.In order to achieve the scale, elasticity, and efficiency benefits of the cloud, the data and security elements across all environments must be integrated, visible and able to share intelligence to ensure automated protection.

Fortinet has extended core capabilities of its Security Fabric architecture to enable businesses to experience the same level of cybersecurityand threat intelligence incloud environments as they do on their physical networks. Part of the FortiOS 5.6 software release, the latest enhancements deliver elastic, end-to-end cloud security for enterprises and service providers.

Reflecting on the trends in the cloud market, Zeus Kerravala, founder and principal analyst at ZK Research, said, “Cloud services are being consumed much faster than premise-based infrastructure or applications, but how to handle cloud security still keeps CIOs up at night. Like any IT resource, cloud services must be managed and secured using policy, monitoring applications and integrated security tools. Fortinet’s latest cloud security offerings through its Security Fabric provide the visibility, automation and control that CIOs need to help ensure that their data is protected, from their data centers out to their cloud environments.”
