"Cloud infrastructure has become a critical element of enterprise networks today, as it allows organizations to scale and innovate with on-demand resources. Enabling visibility and centralized control is crucial to protect enterprise applications as they move across multi-cloud networks, from hybrid architecture to cloud environments. With AWS joining the Fortinet Fabric-Ready Partner Program, we are building on our existing relationship to enable cloud security that arms our joint customers with integrated, flexible and secure access to the cloud."
Fortinet (NASDAQ:FTNT), a global leader in high-performance cybersecurity solutions, today announced that Amazon Web Services (AWS) has joined the Fortinet
Fabric-Ready Partner Program, and the companies are expanding their collaboration to deliver new cybersecurity solutions on AWS. This marks an extension of the existing relationship between Fortinet and AWS and further demonstrates an aligned commitment to application security.
Enterprises are migrating towards infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS) to take advantage of increased flexibility, reliability, and scalability. Fortinet and AWS have expanded their collaboration through the Fortinet Fabric-Ready Partner Program, where AWS has been validated within the Fortinet Security Fabric. Together, Fortinet and AWS are enabling greater security automation through Fortinet Security Fabric open APIs, which are designed
to help drive operational efficiency, consistency and cost savings for their customers.
Fortinet's broad cloud applications portfolio on AWS Marketplace complements AWS services with advanced security management, intelligence correlation, compliance guidance and reporting. Today, Fortinet solutions that integrate with AWS include endpoint, network, web and email security, as well as cloud sandboxing, SIEM and log analytics. Having one cloud security provider to protect all types of workloads running on AWS allows customers to benefit from a
single security management console, with consistent updates and licensing models across all their cloud security applications.
As part of the Fabric-Ready Partner Program, AWS and Fortinet will focus on technology integration with the Security Fabric, share best practices regarding interoperability, and collaborate for the benefit of customers.
"Cloud security at AWS is always a priority. By collaborating with Fortinet, we give our customers an additional option when selecting their security solutions," said David Wright, General Manager, Worldwide Strategic Technology Partners, Amazon Web Services, Inc. "Our customers can now benefit
from a robust set of integrated security capabilities built around open APIs for infrastructure flexibility, control and end-to-end visibility."
