DARKReading: Security Considerations for Working with Cloud Services Providers (Dec. 14th)
Fortinet News

With nearly 1,300 patents and hundreds more pending-more than many of our competitors combined-Fortinet is deeply committed to innovation.

But it's not just the volume of our creativity that sets us apart. It's the cadence at which those innovations are launched and the vast number of solutions they encompass.

Earlier this year, in just the span of two weeks, Fortinet introduced three major new offerings designed to support security teams as they all work toward a common goal: staying ahead of their adversaries. What's even more remarkable is that Fortinet delivered these solutions across such a broad spectrum of technologies, including security, networking, and the cloud. It's all part of Fortinet's commitment to providing organizations with a broad, integrated, and automated solution strategy designed to span and adapt to today's highly dynamic hybrid networks.


We are excited to announce FortiGate-VM Next Generation Firewall (NGFW) support for AWS Graviton-based EC2 instances.

By deploying FortiGate - VM on AWS Graviton instances, customers can save up to 20 percent in associated Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2) costs, ensuring they can streamline cloud investments while still delivering industry-leading protection for their business-critical cloud workloads on AWS.

This new capability provides Fortinet customers with more choice while helping them optimize their investments in AWS cloud - without compromising performance.


Fortinet is Positioned Highest in Ability to Execute for Two Years in a Row and Recognized for Completeness of Vision

Fortinet announced its position as a Leader in the 2022 Gartner Magic Quadrant for SD-WAN. This marks the third year in a row that Fortinet has been recognized as a Leader for Fortinet Secure SD-WAN and the second year in a row that Fortinet has placed highest in ability to execute in the quadrant with consistent recognition for completeness of vision.

With a rapidly growing SD-WAN customer base, organizations around the world depend on Fortinet Secure SD-WAN as an essential resource to transform and secure the WAN.


With the ever-growing list of cybersecurity threats and the constant vigilance required to stay ahead of them, it's easy to lose sight of what CISOs should prioritize.

In addition, there are many technologies, services, and approaches to consider when planning a security strategy. Fortinet Field CISOs, Jaime Chanaga and Daniel Kwong, offer some advice for CISOs to keep top of mind when reviewing their security posture as well as recommendations to avoid falling victim to the ever-expanding threat environment.

We are pleased to announce that Fortinet has been named a Leader in the 2022 Gartner Magic Quadrant for SD-WAN for the third year in a row, is placed highest in Ability to Execute for the second year in a row, and has been consistently recognized for Completeness of Vision.

We believe our placement as a Leader is a testament to our ongoing investment, prioritization, and commitment in our Secure SD-WAN solution to address evolving customer needs across verticals and use cases.

That Fortinet vision first led to our integrating SD-WAN and NGFW to secure network transformation. We were also the first to deliver SD-WAN integrated with Zero Trust Network Access (ZTNA) enforcement to better secure and connect hybrid work. And by delivering the industry's only SD-WAN ASIC, Fortinet enables organizations to achieve massive scale and high-performance without security compromises - all controlled using a single management system.
