Fortinet Public — Private And Hybrid Cloud Security

Cloud computing provides elastic and scalable infrastructure for applications, storage, and data that changes the way the world does business. The network infrastructure of a public cloud is offloaded to cloud providers such as AWS and Azure. Security becomes a shared responsibility between the cloud service provider and the enterprise tenant. Fortinet Cloud Security Managed Services enables secure workloads in public clouds to ensure confidentiality while leveraging the cloud benefits. Organizations are moving from a data center to a public cloud and planning to maintain a combination of both. Building a dynamic hybrid cloud requires migration of data, reliable connectivity, and stretching of network topologies across the WAN. Multi-tenant support and virtual domain support for network segmentation and security service function deployment.

Cloud computing is becoming increasingly popular among enterprises looking to take advantage of the quick deployment, unprecedented scalability, and cost savings. Private cloud infrastructure, including virtualization and Software-Defined Networking (SDN), are rapidly transforming data centers worldwide. At the same time, organizations are rapidly embracing public clouds, both migrating workloads to Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) clouds like AWS and Azure, and adopting Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) applications.

This results in a hybrid cloud and increasingly multi-cloud environment that is truly borderless for your enterprise users, data, and applications. Evolving your infrastructure means your security must evolve as well, to protect your enterprise regardless of where your infrastructure and applications are running. If your security can’t keep up with the agile public, private, and hybrid cloud environments of today, gaps in protection will occur.

Security for Cisco ACI — Cisco Application Centric Infrastructure (ACI) takes in FortiGate appliances (physical and virtual) as Layer-4 through Layer-7 security firewall services. All policy orchestration, provisioning, and scaling are automatic and centrally-profiled based on application heuristics and workloads. Cisco ACI’s unique approach uses a common policy-based operating model across a network that overcomes IT silos and drastically reduces costs and complexity. Security for VMware NSX — Fortinet’s FortiGate VMX solution with VMware NSX protects east-west traffic, which now accounts for up to 80 percent of network traffic.

The Fortinet solution with VMware eliminates the previous process and enables policy-based firewall controls on each VMware vNIC across the data center for east-west traffic inspection. To close security gaps, the solution automatically scales the security features available on each hypervisor joined to the security cluster, where consistent policies and firewall rules are applied. Security for OpenStack based clouds provide the environment needed for elastic, on-demand multitenant applications.

Most organizations are in the process of moving from an on-premises data center to a public cloud service and planning to maintain a combination of both conventional IT and public cloud deployments.
