Fortinet is providing its as-a-service model FortiFlex with new capabilities. The program is now available through the AWS Marketplace. This should provide users with more licensing options.
FortifFlex is a suite of solutions for protecting the cloud and other environments. Customers can purchase the services from this suite entirely as they wish, paying according to usage. This enables them to scale up and down more flexibly as needed.
Support firewall appliances
Fortinet’s as-a-service model now also supports FortiGuard AI Security Services. In addition, it now includes FortiCare support for several FortiGate next-gen firewall appliances.
It specifically includes support for physical entry-level and midrange next-gen FortiGate firewall appliances. Systems supported include the FortiGate 40F, FortiGate 60E/F series, FortiGate 70F, FortiGate 80F, FortiGate 100E/F series, FortiGate 200 E/F series, FortiGate 400F and FortiGate 600F.
Part of AWS Marketplace
In addition, FortiFlex is now available through the AWS Marketplace. This is especially good news for customers using the AWS Enterprise Discount Program (EDP).
FortiFlex helps these end users convert specific discounts to so-called FortiFlex points. This allows them to improve their AWS costs while getting more value from their Fortinet products.
