Fortinet is taking the next step by creating native support of the VMware NSX-T for Data Center, allowing for consistent security functionality across multiple hypervisor environments with the FortiGate-VM. With this technology, they are increasing the effectiveness of the already robust North-South protection by adding East-West protection as well. With this integration, zero-trust security is enabled across all hypervisors and throughout multiple clouds, thus increasing security performance overall.
This technology simplifies management for IT teams by removing the need for manual intervention whenever changes are made to object metadata. Fortinet’s Fabric Connector will automatically update the policies leaving IT free to focus on other business-critical tasks. Another time-saving benefit is the enabling of a single pane of glass security management for your cloud infrastructure. Now you can focus more time on planning your security strategy and less time implementing one, extending to integrations with your public cloud-like GCP, AWS, or Azure. As IT teams work to create cost-effective hybrid solutions, they remain secure and maintain the high performance needs to move at the speed of business.
CISOs are now able to enact a manageable security posture through leveraging a SecOps model. The need for an integrated, easy to use, zero-trust policy can be seen as news of security breaches sweep across all industries. Attackers are finding ways of social engineering their way into networks, and from there, they can take over. This integration allows SecOps to increase their visibility into what’s going on across all systems.
Planning and deploying a new strategy based on this information takes a team of experts with knowledge of VMware and Fortinet. Here, our experts can show you how to protect your systems and infrastructure while working at the speed of business.
