FortiWeb-VM Extends Protection to Amazon Web Services to Help Customers Secure Web Applications and Meet Compliance Requirements

SUNNYVALE, Calif., November 29, 2012- Fortinet (NASDAQ: FTNT) - a world leader in high-performance network security – today announced the virtual machine version of its FortiWeb Web application firewall is now available on Amazon Web Services (AWS).

“FortiWeb-VM provides AWS customers the best of both worlds,” said Chris Rodriguez, senior network security industry analyst with Frost and Sullivan. “The tremendous flexibility and stability of AWS, combined with Fortinet’s advanced security capabilities, is a winning combination for customers migrating strategic Web applications to the cloud.”

With FortiWeb-VM, customers can deploy virtual Web application firewalls running on AWS in conjunction with other FortiGate security technologies running on their own internal network, all from a single, centralized management platform. This allows them to easily extend the power and flexibility of Fortinet security technologies to the AWS Cloud.

FortiWeb-VM at-a-Glance

FortiWeb-VM provides multiple protection layers against today’s threats that target Web applications, including application signatures, HTTP RFC compliance, auto-learn-based violations and data leak prevention.

In addition, FortiWeb-VM automatically and dynamically profiles user activity to create a baseline of permissible activity. Its real-time data analysis capabilities provide an analytics interface that helps organizations understand their Web application usage and maps requests to their geographic location.

Unique to FortiWeb-VM is an integrated vulnerability scanner that provides detailed analyses of existing application vulnerabilities that complement its application firewall capabilities and is especially useful for PCI DSS compliance.

“Security is paramount at AWS and we work hard to ensure our partner ecosystem includes the strongest players in enterprise security,” said Terry Wise, head of worldwide partner ecosystem, Amazon Web Services. “In the cloud, security is a shared responsibility and therefore our customers look to deploy the same best of breed security solutions that they utilize on premise. We are excited to see Fortinet bring FortiWeb-VM to AWS.”

“Leveraging the AWS platform to provide tools to help AWS customers protect their strategic Web applications is a key milestone in expanding Fortinet’s rich portfolio of cloud computing solutions,” said Patrick Bedwell, vice president of product marketing for Fortinet. “AWS is a global presence, and we are looking forward to supporting AWS customers around the world with our innovative FortiWeb-VM security solution.”
