Cybersecurity solutions vendor Fortinet announced that NTT Communications has selected FortiWeb VM virtual Web Application Firewall (WAF) to secure its enterprise private cloud and cloud service provider platforms.
Fortinet’s WAF security technologies are designed to help NTT Com’s customers prevent identity theft, financial fraud and denial of service through specialized, layered application threat protection.
NTT Com will offer Fortinet’s Web Application Firewall (WAF) functions within their Integrated Security Appliance.
NTT Com customers will now be able to deploy Fortinet’s WAF for web security to bolster their basic security features like antivirus, intrusion prevention (IPS) and URL filtering, all within the cloud.
Users have direct control of WAF features through their unified global management portal which enables on/off, adding/deleting certificates, routing along with other management and configuration functions.
Fortinet said NTT Com is also revealing the expansion of their unified threat management (UTM) services as an Enterprise Cloud option.
It will combine IPS software for virtual environments, URL filtering, anti-virus, spam prevention for web and email and managed security, all powered by Fortinet’s FortiGate VM and FortiGuard subscription services.
FortiWeb virtual appliances protect web-based applications and internet-facing data from attacks and breaches by injecting web application firewalls into the virtual infrastructure.
In September, Fortinet launched FortiWeb 4000E and 3000E Web Application Firewalls designed to protect customer data from attack and data loss. FortiWeb appliances now offer advanced security services powered by FortiGuard Labs’ advanced threat intelligence.
