Today at AWS re:Invent, Fortinet is pleased to announce new Cloud Consulting Service offerings in AWS Marketplace to help customers simplify and future-proof their application journeys on AWS and across hybrid and multi-clouds. The new services provide expert guidance, and in some cases custom-built cloud architectures, giving organizations of all sizes the ability to approach cloud in a thoughtful, security-driven, and operationally efficient manner to meet their cloud journey goals of today and tomorrow.
Digital Acceleration, Work-from-Anywhere, and Accidental Multi-clouds are Leaving Security Gaps
When I speak to customers about their current cloud migration initiatives, most have expedited their journey to the cloud in response to external factors such as the need to support digital acceleration efforts or the push to enable employees to work from anywhere (WFA). Often organizations have ended up with an “accidental multi-cloud” made up of disparate tools and solutions to address different functions and applications. Unfortunately, moving to the cloud quickly has left many dealing with increased operational and deployment complexities, loss of visibility, and increased security risks, particularly in light of skills and resource gaps. When it comes to security, many have found that the biggest threat to their cloud deployments is not the threats themselves, but misconfiguration.
Fortinet Introduces New Cloud Services in AWS Marketplace
Amongst our customers, there is unanimous agreement that the future of cloud will remain fluid, and organizations need adaptable cloud solutions to provide them with flexibility to incrementally build toward their cloud of tomorrow. To get there, many teams need help rationalizing and designing a viable roadmap to successfully deploy the right solutions and cloud architectures to realized their digital accelerations goals for today and tomorrow. To support these customers, Fortinet is announcing new offerings in AWS Marketplace to make migrating and securing the AWS Cloud and multi-cloud environments as simple as possible:
JumpStart Consulting Services with AWS Marketplace
For those early in their cloud journey, Fortinet is now offering two “JumpStart” services to help customers design the optimal architecture and successfully deploy and configure a FortiGate-VM next-generation firewall or FortiWeb-VM web application firewall on AWS Cloud. Each JumpStart Consulting Service includes a five-day engagement and two free VM instances for one year.
- Cloud Security Posture Assessment Service
Fortinet’s Cloud Security Posture Assessment (CSPA) service enables customers to lower business risks, augment skilled staff, and execute cloud in a thoughtful manner. Through the CSPA service, Fortinet assesses your AWS deployments to identify potential risks and provide recommendations to improve your overall security posture. A proactive assessment to identify and address potential misconfiguration can help fortify cloud deployments against threats and security risks.
- Network & Application Security Consulting Service
Fortinet additionally offers a custom engagement for those looking for a tailored experience. Not every organization has the time or in-house expertise to set up a holistic security architecture across private and public cloud environments that is resilient enough to withstand the continuous changes in the threat landscape. To meet this need, Fortinet has assembled some of the industry’s top cloud architects to provide strategic guidance. Our experts partner with business leaders to help them discover, align, and guide their organizations through the cloud-enablement journey. The end result is a custom-built cloud security architecture design that is based on best practices with consistent security that spans the entire multi-cloud environment.
The Network & Application Security Consulting Service takes a vendor-agnostic approach that takes advantage of the most appropriate products and solutions regardless of vendor. The services help organizations:
- Identify existing security solutions
- Align findings to business goals
- Guide current projects
- Create a roadmap to guide future cloud security integration
All of the Fortinet Cloud Security Consulting service listings are available now through AWS Marketplace.
