Fortinet expands its partner-focused Security-as-a-Service (SaaS) offering with new FortiCloud solutions. The service offerings provide partners and customers of the company with access to cloud management and security solutions, which must be easy to deploy and manage. With the new FortiCloud solutions, organizations can use a smaller number of vendors for their security technology.

A large part of FortiCloud Services are available in the form of appliances, virtual machines and native cloud applications. This allows users to tailor their FortiCloud services to their individual needs. For example, they help Fortinet’s partners to improve operational efficiency through automation and centralized management. In addition, partners need to be provided with flexible earning models, as well as the option to provide customers with scalable support.

According to Fortinet, FortiCloud Services also enables partners to offer high-performance security solutions. This should result in a faster ROI, lower operational costs and opportunities for partners and their customers.

Multi-cloud

Fortinet also offers multi-cloud solutions, which are part of the Fortinet Security Fabric. For example, the solutions provide a central console for gaining an overall view of the IT environment and defining security rules for the entire infrastructure in order to mitigate cyber risks. Fortinet does this with the FortiCASB-SaaS, which is a cloud access security broker that provides APIs for managing and monitoring activities and configurations in cloud environments. There are also links to Security Fabric FortiView, which provides security administrators with a central overview of the entire attack area of multi-cloud environments.

In addition, the company offers advanced mechanisms to secure the application layer. This allows organizations to choose the cloud platforms that best meet their business priorities without compromising security. Organisations can use FortiWeb-VM to protect web APIs and front-end Internet applications against cyber threats. The solution supports everything from containers to virtual machines and SaaS solutions.

Finally, Fortinet claims that it provides safe connections. FortiGate-VM provides flexibility and scalability, while the solution’s virtual security processor technology accelerates performance in private and public clouds.
