Fortinet & AWS Collaborate to Deliver an Integrated Next-Gen Firewall Solution

Fortinet recently announced new integrations with Amazon Web Services (AWS) to further provide customers with advanced security across their cloud platforms, applications, and network.

Fortinet is continuing to provide a broad set of natively integrated security solutions using AWS to provide customers with full visibility and control of applications and centralized management across cloud and hybrid environments. The newest integrations on AWS include:

Fortinet Managed IPS Rules Powered by FortiGuard Labs:  This is a new managed service that makes it easy to deploy essential network protections for all of a customer’s Amazon Virtual Private Clouds (Amazon VPCs).  Through this integration, organizations can use Fortinet managed IPS rules to centrally set policies across all of their Amazon VPCs and accounts. These new managed rulesets make it easy for customers to import rules and integrate FortiGuard Labs’ threat intelligence with AWS Network Firewall as an additional layer of protection.
FortiGuard Labs, Fortinet’s threat intelligence and research organization, provides proven threat intelligence to protect organizations from malicious cyberattacks.

FortiGate-VM Next Generation Firewall integration with AWS Gateway Load Balancer: Fortinet’s FortiGate-VM integrates with AWS Gateway Load Balancer (GWLB) to help organizations simplify and secure their Amazon VPC environments while improving high availability and scaling. For advanced protection of Internet bound traffic and inter-VPC network traffic, FortiGate-VM provides robust connectivity features, including high performance IPSec VPN, SSL VPN and rich security features including Intrusion Prevention (IDPS), Deep Packet Inspection (DPI), URL Filtering, Anti-malware protection and Granular Segmentation.

Fortinet consulting services for AWS customers: Fortinet’s new consulting services available in AWS Marketplace provide customers with a blueprint for designing and implementing advanced security across their cloud platform, network and applications on AWS. The new consulting service also offers security assessments of AWS deployments to enhance organizations’ security posture and remediate existing misconfigurations.

Fortinet Security Fabric for AWS The announcement builds on Fortinet’s existing collaboration with AWS. AWS is also part of Fortinet Open Fabric Ecosystem, one of the industry’s largest cybersecurity ecosystems. The Fortinet Security Fabric protects customer environments across physical, virtual, cloud or hybrid infrastructures with the following unique capabilities:

  • Single-pane-of-glass control and management
