Fortinet has announced that the FortiGate-VM, powered by the Fortinet Security Fabric, is extending its native support of VMware NSX-T Data Center to provide advanced security for East-West traffic. Fortinet will help customers more confidently unify security to extend their virtualized infrastructure across multi-hypervisor environments, public and private clouds. This provides a consistent security posture leveraging a consistent SecOps model. Fortinet fully supports VMware NSX-T by now adding to the existing North-South protection capabilities of the FortiGate-VM for advanced security in VMware NSX-T environments.
Fortinet’s full support of VMware NSX-T allows organizations to reduce the number of point products they use to protect their infrastructure while providing consistent security across various environments. Powered by FortiGate-VM technology, Fortinet’s ability to monitor NSX-T East-West security will provide consistent security across any environment as well as give comprehensive visibility inside the network with single-pane-of-glass management.
Rajesh Maurya, Regional Vice President, India & SAARC at Fortinet, said, “We look forward to tightening our collaboration with Fabric-Ready Partner VMware to make the cloud on-ramp that mutual customers are undertaking as easy as possible. By combining FortiGate-VM functionality with VMware’s NSX-T Data Center, organizations can seamlessly integrate security functionality across multi-hypervisor environments, public clouds and multiple clouds.”
“VMware and Fortinet are enabling our mutual customers with end-to-end security by inserting next-generation firewall capabilities seamlessly into VMware NSX-T Data Center environments. FortiGate-VM’s interoperability with NSX-T Data Center will enable our mutual customers to deliver even deeper security across the Virtual Cloud Network,”
