Fortinet expands AWS portfolio

Bangalore: Security solutions provider Fortinet has expanded its solution set for Amazon Web Services (AWS) with pay-as-you go data center firewall–FortiGate-VM virtualized.

“Extending its cloud platform, FortiGate-VM helps AWS customers secure critical data and meet stringent compliance requirements with a mature on-demand security offering available on the AWS Marketplace,” a statement said.

Fortinet now offers AWS customers a security solution set that includes FortiGate network security appliances, FortiWeb web application firewalls, and FortiManager-VM and FortiAnalyzer-VM virtualized management and analysis systems.

All the solutions are currently available in the AWS Marketplace. FortGate-VM and FortiWeb-VM are also available as on-demand instances for hourly or annual subscriptions.

The company’s continued innovation and wide breadth of offerings in the virtual and cloud space have given rise to the growing number of customers that have adopted Fortinet’s virtualized solutions on the AWS Cloud.

FortiGate-VM for AWS can now be leveraged seamlessly on an hourly or annual subscription basis from AWS Marketplace, complementing existing Bring Your Own License (BYOL) options.

The expanded offering allows customers consume FortiGate-VM in the same simple and flexible manner as they would with the AWS infrastructure itself when the service is procured via AWS Marketplace for on-demand delivery with integrated metering, billing and payments.

A significant benefit of the new on-demand, pay-as-you-go option is the ability to deploy and scale the solution to meet immediate and growing security demands, while also maintaining predictable cost models. New AWS Marketplace annual subscription options allow potential CAPEX savings of up to 40 percent when compared to hourly pricing over the same 12-month period.

“We are excited to have FortiGate-VM for AWS available via annual and hourly subscription on AWS Marketplace,” said Terry Hanold, vice president, cloud commerce, Amazon Web Services, Inc.

“Customers can easily and quickly purchase FortiGate-VM on AWS Marketplace to help provide additional layers of protection for their workloads running on AWS,” he added.
