John Maddison, senior vice president of products and solutions at Fortinet “The majority of organizations are leveraging cloud computing to accelerate their digital business strategies and growth. As such, infrastructure requirements for on-demand resources that can automatically and securely scale with business demands are rapidly evolving, making security transformation a critical requirement for these multi-cloud networks. Through our collaboration with Google Cloud, we are now offering the broad visibility, integrated threat detection and automated response capabilities of Fortinet cloud security to Google Cloud customers.”
Fortinet® (NASDAQ: FTNT), a global leader in broad, automated and integrated cybersecurity solutions, today announced that its FortiGate Virtual Machine (VM) is now available for Google Cloud Platform customers, delivering on-demand consumption while providing multiple layers of security for dynamic enterprise cloud networks.
Cloud computing is a key enabler of enterprise digital transformation strategies. As businesses move applications out of on-premise data centers to public cloud infrastructure to benefit from the agility and scale of cloud resources, consistent security control and policies are critical. Protecting these highly dynamic multi-cloud environments requires a Security Fabric with tightly integrated security features and network technologies that share intelligence on advanced threats and automate responses in real-time.
Fortinet is working with partners like Google Cloud to enable enterprises to accelerate their digital business through cloud computing, while ensuring the consistent security and privacy of customer and organizational data across the cloud. Through the Fortinet Security Fabric, Fortinet provides enterprise customers with a single pane of glass view of FortiGate VMs and other security applications across Google Cloud, on-premise, as well as hybrid cloud environments.
