Extending its Cloud Platform, FortiWeb-VM Secures Web Applications, Meets Compliance Requirements and Enhances Licensing for Security-as-a-Service Offering Available on AWS
SUNNYVALE, Calif., July 14, 2014 - Fortinet® (NASDAQ: FTNT) - a world leader in high-performance network security – today announced enhancements to its existing FortiWeb-VM Web Application Firewalls (WAFs) for Amazon Web Services (AWS) to include on-demand, pay-as-you-go offerings. FortiWeb-VM for AWS helps AWS enterprise customers secure their cloud-based Web applications and meet PCI DSS compliance requirements.
FortiWeb-VM for AWS can now be utilized seamlessly on an hourly or annual subscription basis, complementing existing Bring Your Own License (BYOL) options. When procured via AWS Marketplace for on-demand delivery and integrated metering, billing, and payments, AWS customers can now consume “security-as-a-service” in the same simple and elastic manner as they would with the AWS infrastructure itself. A significant benefit of the new on-demand, pay-as-you-go model is scaling the solution to meet immediate needs, while still offering predictable cost models. The new AWS Marketplace annual subscription options potentially allow CAPEX savings of up to 40 percent when compared to hourly pricing over the same 12 month period.
“We are excited to have FortiWeb-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 now easily and quickly purchase FortiWeb-VM on AWS Marketplace to help provide additional layers of protection for their workloads running on AWS.”
