Fortinet Announces On-Demand, Pay-As-You-Go Data Center Firewall for Amazon Web Services (AWS)
KUALA LUMPUR, 15 January 2015 (Thu): Fortinet, a world leader in high-performance network security, announced it has expanded its solution set for Amazon Web Services (AWS) to include pay-as-you go licensing for its FortiGate-VM virtualized data center firewall. FortiGate-VM for AWS provides enterprise customers with a mature, scalable and reliable solution to secure their cloud-based workloads and meet compliance requirements. An innovator in this realm, Fortinet now offers AWS customers a broad security solution set, which includes its award-winning FortiGate network security appliances, FortiWeb web application firewalls, and FortiManager-VM and FortiAnalyzer-VM virtualized management and analysis systems. The company’s continued innovation and wide breadth of offerings in the virtual and cloud space have given rise to the growing number of customers that have adopted Fortinet’s virtualized solutions on the AWS Cloud.
FortiGate-VM for AWS can now be leveraged seamlessly on an hourly or annual subscription basis from AWS Marketplace, complementing existing Bring Your Own License (BYOL) options. The expanded offering allows customers consume FortiGate-VM in the same simple and flexible manner as they would with the AWS infrastructure itself when the service is procured via AWS Marketplace for on-demand delivery with integrated metering, billing and payments. A significant benefit of the new on-demand, pay-as-you-go option is the ability to deploy and scale the solution to meet immediate and growing security demands, while also maintaining predictable cost models. New AWS Marketplace annual subscription options allow potential CAPEX savings of up to 40 percent when compared to hourly pricing over the same 12-month period.
“We are excited to have FortiGate-VM for AWS available via annual and hourly subscription on AWS Marketplace,” said Terry Hanold, vice president, cloud commerce, Amazon Web Services, Inc. “Customers can easily and quickly purchase FortiGate-VM on AWS Marketplace to help provide additional layers of protection for their workloads running on AWS.”
