Fortinet extends support to strengthen Cloud Security in Corporate World

Cyber security software developing vendor Fortinet has announced that it is extending its support to strengthen cloud security feature in the corporate world. The American company announced in this week that it is going to achieve its objective by adding a Cloud Security Access Broker (CASB) to its product portfolio.

Cloud Security is now on the minds of CIOs and CTOs of most IT organizations which are considering leasing services of public clouds. But they are not in a position to get easily convinced when it comes to cloud security.

Fortinet wants to close the security gap between on-premise security management and cloud with its Fortinet Security Fabric. The California-based company has also revealed to the media that it has significantly improved FortiGate VMs which are now 3x faster per core than previously benchmarked. FortiGate Virtual machines will now on support more than 32 CPU cores in a single VM and that too with 20-30% savings offering at the cost of delivering added performance.

As security teams in the corporate world are witnessing data deluge in real-time, they need to keep a balance the storage costs against the data which is being generated, processed and ultimately being stored. And as cloud computing is seen as a cost reducing platforms by IT teams, Fortinet claims to move all the security collection and assessment into the cloud at lowered costs with its FortiCASB.

FortiCASB offers greater visibility into the data which is being used and stored by cloud applications. Moreover, it can be integrated into other and most commonly used SaaS applications such as Office 365.

So, for all those businesses which are looking for a mature approach to cloud computing, Fortinet security fabric stands as the best solution.

But on seeing the current rate of cloud adoption in the corporate world due to security concerns, accomplishing the level of maturity is now more a question of when rather than if.
