The cloud offers many advantages for companies. It makes your IT infrastructure scalable, you only pay for what you need, you always have the necessary performance and you get a lot of flexibility. Especially the latter is a big advantage, especially when your organisation is larger. Then there is probably a great deal of dynamism between the various offices, departments, projects, employees ... resulting in more unpredictable workloads.

More and more companies are making the move to the cloud, which is also interesting for cybercriminals...

Ransomware attacks on large companies are commonplace. The demand for even stricter security of cloud solutions is increasing.

Fortinet and Microsoft join forces

Microsoft Gold Partner | VanRoey.beMicrosoft Azure is certainly one of the most secure cloud solutions on the market. You can rest assured that your Azure cloud environment is well separated from those of other organizations. But your virtual servers, clients and apps within Azure are your responsibility. That is why it is best to use state-of-the-art security solutions.

Fortinet Expert Partner | VanRoey.beFor the integration of advanced cloud security solutions, Fortinet - the number one in security - works closely with Microsoft. These solutions, along with many others, are available in the Fortinet Security Fabric. This way, your organization can enjoy the benefits of the Azure cloud in complete safety.

Fortinet Integrated Solutions

Secure connections

To ensure users have a secure connection, Fortinet goes to great lengths to secure Azure cloud services. The integration of FortiGate Secure SD-WAN with Azure Virtual WAN makes a secure transition to the cloud much easier.

It is especially during the migration and setup phase that your cloud environment is most vulnerable. But also after this integration you get more control over the connections of different users to the Microsoft Cloud.

Better monitoring

To prevent intrusions it is important to monitor the activity in your cloud environment. Thanks to FortiCWP (Cloud Workload Protection) you can perform in-depth analyses within Azure. This will give you a good overview of the activities and configurations. Threats are detected very quickly and the necessary measures are taken immediately, even before the user notices anything.

Unburdening

Securing your cloud environment doesn't have to mean a lot of extra work for your IT staff. Fortinet WAF-as-a-Service (Web Application Firewall), for example, gives you a lot of possibilities to configure and automate the security of your Azure cloud environment. WAF-as-a-Service requires no in-depth application knowledge, is easy to use and can be activated immediately via the Microsoft Azure Marketplace.
