The FortiWeb Cloud WAF-as-a-Service on Amazon Web Services (AWS), according to Fortinet, allows organisations to rapidly deploy web applications while providing best-in-class security for mission-critical applications – protecting applications and APIs from threats and addressing compliance requirements.

Organisations protecting their web applications with this Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) solution can deploy the full WAF solution without the need to deploy and manage infrastructure or possess specific web application security skills, enabling rapid application deployment.

“As organisations increasingly build out their business in the cloud and use web applications, they increase their exposure to known and unknown targeted attacks,” said John Maddison, EVP of Products and Solutions at Fortinet. “Delivered through the Fortinet Security Fabric, FortiWeb Cloud Web Application Firewall (WAF)-as-a-Service allows organisations to rapidly deploy web applications while providing best-in-class security for mission-critical applications.”

To keep up with digital transformation, IT teams are increasingly deploying applications to the cloud and building cloud-native applications. However, this rapid deployment can introduce vulnerabilities and requires robust security to defend the evolving attack surface and protect applications from threats.

Fortinet, through FortiWeb Cloud WAF-as-a-Service, aims to address the issues that IT teams, including DevOps face. FortiWeb Cloud WAF-as-a-Service is available for purchase on AWS Marketplace or through your preferred Fortinet reseller and leverages the flexibility of AWS by automatically provisioning security protection for customers across multiple AWS Regions.

Dan Plastina, vice president, Security Services, Amazon Web Services, said, “The availability of FortiWeb Cloud WAF-as-a-Service on AWS makes it easy for organisations to get a SaaS cloud-based web application firewall up and running for advanced threat protection within minutes in a single global AWS Region. Fortinet’s SaaS solution is delivered from multiple AWS Regions and runs closest to customer applications, providing customers with the flexible performance and cost benefits they desire to support their business agility.”
