Fortinet Expands Security Fabric Offerings on Google Cloud Platform

Fortinet today announced the expansion of Fortinet Security Fabric offerings on Google Cloud Platform, enabling customers to better protect the expanded attack surface of hybrid cloud environments. Adding to its existing FortiGate Next-Generation Firewall offering, Fortinet now offers FortiManager, FortiAnalyzer and FortiWeb on Google Cloud Platform. Fortinet delivers a breadth of security offerings within Google Cloud Platform, stitching together multiple layers of security from next-generation firewall to web application security to analytics.

Further building on Fortinet’s recent Fabric Connectors announcement, Fabric Connectors are now available on Google Cloud Platform, allowing organizations to apply consistent policies across multiple instances with one-click integration. All of Fortinet’s security offerings easily integrate whether on-premises or in the cloud, making it easier for customers to extend protection across multiple environments. The combination of FortiGate and FortiWeb provides customers with the ability to protect their cloud infrastructure deployment and web applications via a unified set of policies, enabling a consistent security posture that is less prone to human error.

“As enterprise infrastructures evolve to include cloud, organizations want to make sure their elected security platforms can move with them,” said John Maddison, senior vice president of products and solutions at Fortinet. “Fortinet is ensuring Google Cloud Platform customers have full access to the Fortinet Security Fabric, giving security architects flexibility on where and when they want to deploy security controls.”

As organizations undergo digital transformation, they are migrating their workloads from on-premises to public cloud infrastructure to enjoy the benefits of agility and scale. Elastic capacity and on-demand pricing enable them to ramp new and existing applications up and down quickly. But as their network expands rapidly, so too does their digital attack surface, creating the need for security solutions that easily span across multiple environments without introducing complexity. Elasticity is another key reason organizations are moving to the cloud, making it necessary for security solutions to ramp up and down as quickly as web applications do.

In order to help customers keep up with the pace of digital transformation and ease the challenges of workload migration, Fortinet is expanding its Security Fabric and Fabric Connectors offerings on Google Cloud Platform. Organizations can now purchase virtual instances of FortiManager and FortiAnalyzer for NOC-SOC security and the FortiWeb Web Application Firewall, in addition to the FortiGate Next-Generation Firewall. New pay-as-you-go pricing options for FortiGate and FortiWeb available on Google Cloud Platform Marketplace, together with the ability to cluster and scale Fortinet instances, ensure transparent protection without slowing down digital business. Also announced today, Fabric Connectors are now available on Google Cloud Platform, providing one-click integration to automatically synchronize and automate between Google Cloud and on-premise, enabling the easy application of consistent policies across multiple instances.

In addition to providing a single-pane-of-glass policy in a unified console, the Fortinet Security Fabric provides Google Cloud users with a combination of advanced threat intelligence from FortiGuard Labs and an industry-leading security operating system, FortiOS, delivering broad security control, workload visibility and management across physical, virtual and cloud environments.

Google Cloud Platform is a member of the Fortinet Fabric-Ready Partner program, a premium category of Fortinet’s technology alliance partnerships and a key part of the Fortinet Security Fabric, which enables Fortinet and partner products to collaboratively integrate and provide end-to-end security. This year, Fortinet will be a Velocity Sponsor at Google NEXT 2018; visit Fortinet’s Booth (#W1308) for more information on our Security Fabric offerings on the Google Cloud Platform.
