News Summary
Fortinet® (NASDAQ:FTNT), a global leader in high-performance cybersecurity solutions, and a Gold level member of the Oracle PartnerNetwork (OPN), today announced that its FortiGate Virtual Machine (VM) is now available on the Oracle Cloud Marketplace.

  • The FortiGate VM Next-Generation Firewall is available with BYOL to Oracle Cloud customers, enabling enterprises to securely move their workloads and applications to the public cloud with site-to-site connectivity, cross-cloud segmentation, and consistent security policies.
  • The Oracle Cloud Marketplace is a one-stop shop for Oracle customers seeking trusted business applications and service providers offering unique business solutions, including ones that extend Oracle Cloud Applications. Oracle Cloud is a complete public cloud, delivering enterprise-grade services at every level of the cloud technology stack including software as a service (SaaS), platform as a service (PaaS), infrastructure as a service (IaaS), and data as a service (DaaS).
  • Fortinet is a Signature Sponsor at Oracle OpenWorld 2017 in the State of the Art Cloud Platform Partner Showcase and will be demonstrating its latest virtualized Fortinet Security Fabric solutions.
  • Fortinet will demonstrate how the FortiGate VM helps Oracle customers achieve the utility and elasticity of the public cloud with the granular control, security features and visibility of on-premises infrastructure.  

Fortinet Delivers Consistent Security Policy and Visibility for Oracle Cloud Customers
A recent survey by ESG Research, showed that 69 percent of cybersecurity professionals indicated that their organization is still learning how to apply its security policies to public and private cloud infrastructure, while 62 percent say it is difficult to get the same level of visibility into cloud-based workloads as they have on their physical networks. Protecting these highly dynamic environments requires a Security Fabric with tightly integrated security features and network technologies that share intelligence, and collaborate to detect, isolate, and respond to threats in real time.

Fortinet and Oracle are expanding their relationship to deliver virtualized security solutions across Oracle public and hybrid cloud environments to deliver the on-demand and multiple layers of security features required for these dynamic cloud networks. Available now as BYOL in the Oracle Cloud Marketplace, FortiGate VMs provide Oracle Cloud customers with a combination of advanced threat intelligence from FortiGuard Labs with the industry leading security operating system, FortiOS, delivering complete security feature control, workload visibility and management across physical, virtual and cloud environments.

The Oracle Cloud Marketplace offers an intuitive user interface to browse and search for available applications and services, as well as user ratings and reviews to help customers determine the best business solutions for their organization. With its new automated application installation features, customers can easily deploy provider business applications from a centralized cloud interface.

Additionally, Fortinet is an early adopter of Oracle Cloud Infrastructure, featuring its FortiGate VM. This integration will allow users to securely move business-critical workloads from on-premise, private to public cloud deployments without jeopardizing policy visibility. As Oracle Cloud scales through multiple Availability Domains (ADs) and delivers ultra-low latency with high bandwidth, FortiGate will complement the cloud services with highly available and multi-layered security features for mission critical workloads across regions.
