Dubai, UAE – September 26, 2018.  Fortinet® (NASDAQ: FTNT), a global leader in broad, integrated and automated cybersecurity solutions, today announced the expansion of its Fortinet Security Fabric offerings on Microsoft Azure, supporting customers with enhanced protection of the expanded attack surface of their hybrid cloud environments.

Fortinet provides a broad portfolio of security offerings on Azure, including FortiGate Next-Generation Firewall, FortiWeb, FortiMail, FortiManager and FortiAnalyzer.
To expand this portfolio, Fortinet now offers FortiSandbox for Azure and supports FortiCASB for Azure IaaS and Microsoft Office 365 SaaS solutions. Fortinet has also added powerful auto-scaling functionality to the FortiGate Next-Generation Firewall and extended its Office 365 Security solution to Azure.
With this announcement, Fortinet is one of the only security vendors to offer the combination of multi-layer NGFW, WAF, email security, sandbox and CASB solutions on Azure, providing one of the most comprehensive approaches to multi-cloud security for enterprise deployments available.

“Expanding network infrastructures and workflows to the cloud requires security controls, policy enforcement and visibility that can span traditional on-premises networks as well as hybrid cloud environments” said John Maddison, SVP of products and solutions at Fortinet  Fortinet provides Microsoft Azure customers with seamless access to the Fortinet Security Fabric, giving security architects the flexibility they need to deploy consistent security controls where and when they are needed.”

As organizations migrate their workloads to one or more public cloud infrastructures, they are also expanding their digital attack surface. Securing today’s extended networks requires security solutions that easily span multiple environments without introducing additional complexity. At the same time, the elasticity of the cloud that enables organizations to adapt as traffic volumes and workflows change also makes it necessary to deploy security solutions that can scale in sync with the cloud infrastructure.

To help customers keep pace with these changes without compromising security, Fortinet is expanding its Security Fabric offerings on Azure. In addition to the virtual instances of the FortiGate Next-Generation Firewall, FortiMail and FortiWeb security technologies, as well as the FortiManager and FortiAnalyzer unified management solutions that Fortinet already provides for Azure customers, Fortinet has now announced the availability of FortiCASB and FortiSandbox for Azure.

The extension of FortiCASB into Azure provides visibility, compliance, data security and threat protection for its IaaS services. FortiCASB provides insights into resources, users, behaviors and data stored in the cloud, while its advanced controls extend security policies from within the network perimeter out to Azure’s IaaS resources and SaaS applications.

FortiSandbox for Azure offers a powerful combination of advanced detection, automated mitigation, actionable insight and flexible deployment to identify and stop known and unknown targeted attacks. Its cross-platform functionality also provides seamless security detection and response across the entire distributed enterprise network. FortiMail, FortiCASB and FortiSandbox together offer enterprise organizations a robust solution to secure their Office 365 SaaS applications without requiring traffic to ever leave the Microsoft cloud infrastructure, ensuring better compliance with regulatory requirements by means of increased security.

Also announced today is enhanced autoscaling functionality for the FortiGate Next-Generation Firewall, helping organizations leverage the elasticity and scalability of the cloud infrastructures to use security services in accordance to application usage patterns.

The addition of these solutions makes the Fortinet Security Fabric  one of the most extensive portfolios of integrated security solutions available for Azure. It is one of the only security suites to offer the combination of multi-layer NGFW, WAF, email security, sandbox and CASB solutions on Azure, while providing one of the most comprehensive approaches to multi-cloud security for distributed enterprise deployments. By implementing the Fortinet Security Fabric on Azure, customers can deploy a fully integrated security solution that seamlessly spans multiple on-premises and hybrid cloud environments.

Tightening the integration relationship even further, Azure is also a member of the Fortinet Fabric-Ready Partner program, a premium category of Fortinet's technology alliance partnerships and a vital part of the Fortinet Security Fabric. This program enables Fortinet and partner products to better integrate their respective solutions in order to provide more consistent and effective end-to-end security.
