Fortinet(R) Delivers Increased Visibility, Management and Analysis for Cloud 
Computing With Virtual Network Security Management and
Reporting Solutions on AWS 
FortiManager-VM and FortiAnalyzer-VM to Help AWS Customers Easily
Manage Security and Reporting Processes From On Premise to the Cloud 
SUNNYVALE, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 11/12/13 --  Fortinet(R) (NASDAQ:
FTNT) -- a global leader in high-performance network security --
today announced the virtual appliance versions of its FortiManager
and FortiAnalyzer product families are now available on Amazon Web
Services (AWS) and in the AWS Marketplace. The centralized security
management and network security analysis solutions help customers
better manage their security and reporting processes from their core
networks to AWS. Today's announcement marks the second and third
virtual appliances Fortinet has deployed on AWS. Last year, the
company announced the availability of a virtual appliance version of
the FortiWeb Web application firewall.  
"We are pleased that Fortinet is expanding its offerings on AWS and
through the AWS Marketplace with FortiManager and FortiAnalyzer,"
said Brian Matsubara, Head of Global Technology Alliances, AWS.
"Fortinet security solutions complement AWS' shared security model by
providing our joint customers with additional security capabilities." 
FortiManager-VM and FortiAnalyzer-VM provide customers the important
tools they need to simplify network security management and
reporting," said Chris Rodriguez, senior network security industry
analyst with Frost and Sullivan. "The secure infrastructure provided
by AWS, coupled with Fortinet's innovation in network security
management and reporting is a powerful combination for businesses
moving their Web applications to the cloud."  
FortiManager-VM and FortiAnalyzer-VM virtual appliances on AWS enable
customers to deploy broad security management and reporting of all
FortiGate and FortiGate-VM security technologies running at the edge,
in internal networks, at remote offices, within core data centers or
deployed in public or private clouds, all from a single, centralized
management platform. 
FortiManager-VM at-a-Glance
 FortiManager virtualized security
management appliances offer the same powerful network security
management featur
es as FortiManager hardware-based appliances, with
the convenience and simplicity of a stackable license model that
enables easy growth within network environments. Fortinet virtual
appliances allow businesses to deploy a mix of physical and virtual
appliances, operating together and managed from a common centralized
FortiManager platform. 
Additional features include: support for up to 10,000 appliances or
virtual domains (VDOMs) from a single appliance for efficient
management of any size deployment; centralized configuration,
policy-based provisioning, update management and end-to-end network
monitoring; and simplified management of network security by grouping
devices into geographic or functional administrative domains (ADOMs).
FortiManager-VM also supports easy VPN policy and configuration
management and can act as a local distribution point for software and
policy updates and provide reduced administrative burden and
operational costs with fast device provisioning, detailed revision
tracking and thorough auditing capabilities.  
FortiAnalyzer-VM at-a-Glance
 FortiAnalyzer virtualized security
reporting appliances securely aggregate log data from Fortinet
devices and other syslog-compatible devices. Using a broad suite of
easily-customized reports, users can filter and review records,
including traffic, event, virus, attack, Web content and email data,
making it easy to mine the data to determi
ne security stance and
helps assure regulatory compliance. 
Additional features include: over 550 reports and customizable charts
to help identify attack patterns, manage acceptable use policies and
demonstrate policy compliance; network capacity and utilization data
reporting, which makes planning and managing networks more efficient;
and a scalable architecture, allowing the device to run in collector
or analyzer modes for optimized log processing. There are also
advanced features such as event correlation, forensic analysis and
vulnerability assessment, which provide essential tools for in-depth
protection of complex networks.  
"Working with AWS is a key part of our ongoing strategy to expand our
rich portfolio of cloud computing solutions," said John Maddison,
vice president of marketing for Fortinet. "FortiAnalyzer-VM and
FortiManager-VM give businesses the flexibility to easily extend our
award-winning and third-party certified security technologies on AWS.
We look forward to continuing to support customers around the world
with our innovative VM security solutions." 
FortiGate-VM at-a-Glance
 FortiGate-VMs allow businesses to mitigate
blind spots and implement critical security controls within a virtual
infrastructure. They allow the rapid provisioning of security
infrastructure whenever and wherever it is needed. FortiGate virtual
appliances feature all of the security and networking services
provided by traditional hardware-based FortiGate appliances powered
by FortiOS. FortiOS, the world's most powerful security operating
system, is the foundation for all Fortinet FortiGate security
platforms. It provides more security, intelligence and control to
help organizations protect against today's advanced targeted attacks.
Together with superior industry-validated behavioral and
signature-based threat detection, FortiOS enables customers to deploy
multi-layered protection against today's sophisticated
 FortiManager-VM and FortiAnalyzer-VM on AWS
