"Enterprises are increasingly deploying virtualization, cloud and software-defined solutions in their IT infrastructure to gain efficiencies from on-demand and pooled resources, however security remains a key concern with these new IT models. Protecting these highly dynamic environments requires a Security Fabric with tightly integrated security and network technologies that share intelligence, and collaborate to detect, isolate, and respond to threats in real time. At VMworld®, we are excited to demonstrate how Fortinet continues to expand its virtualized security solutions and now protects VMware® Integrated OpenStack environments to meet the on-demand and multiple layers of security required for these dynamic cloud networks."
