Fortinet Headquarters

Fortinet (NASDAQ:FTNT) recently reported a pretty good Q2 and despite the challenging macro environment, management largely reiterated guidance for the remainder of the year.

Calling out some delays in deal closings and impacts from the company's business in Russia (which represents <2% of revenue), management did have a more cautious tone regarding their outlook. Combined with underlying strength in the IT security market and investors likely expecting a guidance raise, the stock pulled back ~15% since reporting earnings.

Chart
FTNT data by YCharts

The stock has remained pretty volatile over the past year, with the stock trading between $48-75 with many ups and downs along the way. The company has consistently reported revenue growth of 25%+ and with operating margins around 25%, FTNT has surpassed the Rule of 40 score for many consecutive quarters.

The global pandemic highlighted the need for enterprises to upgrade their IT security systems and move away from legacy on-premise hardware solutions. In today's current environment, macro impacts such as high inflation, rising interest rates, and economic uncertainty, many companies are taking a more cautious approach to their forward outlook, and FTNT is no different.

However, longer term, I believe the company's fundamentals remain robust and even with forward revenue multiple above 9x, I believe long-term investors can still be rewarded. I view this 15% pullback as a good buying opportunity for those looking to gain exposure to IT security.

Financial Review and Guidance

Revenue during the quarter grew 29% yoy to $1.03 billion and was pretty similar to consensus expectations. Not surprisingly, product revenue growth remained strong at 34% yoy growth and while this slowed from the 54% growth last quarter, Q2 had a much tougher growth comparison.

Revenue Trends

Fortinet

In addition, billings growth during the quarter remained robust at 36% yoy, remaining pretty similar to the past two quarters. Billings tend to be a good indicator of future revenue growth, so the consistent billings growth should instill come confidence for revenue growth over the coming quarters.

Q2 Earnings

Fortinet

On top of the consistent revenue and billings trends, margins and profitability remain healthy. During Q2, gross margin was 76.5% and while this was down from 77.5% in the year-ago period, gross margin improved from 74.4% last quarter. Also, while margins contracted ~100bps yoy, the company did see less gross margin pressured compared to last quarter's ~450bps contraction.

Nevertheless, continued operating expense efficiencies led to operating margins of 24.8%, down only ~60bps yoy and improving from the ~250bps yoy contraction seen last quarter.

Customer Trends

Fortinet

Even though the macro environment has remained challenged in accurate months, the company has done a great job continuing on their path towards larger deals.

During Q2, they had nearly 700 deals >$250k, up ~100 from last quarter. In addition, they had 122 deals >$1 million, which is tied for the most in the company's history.

Largely deals are typically stickier and more recurring, as enterprises are less willing to walk away from a large deal. Yes, the macro environment may cause some deals to take longer to close as companies re-visit their investments, but these large deals are likely to remain a stronghold for the company.

Guidance

Fortinet

For Q3, the company is expecting revenue of $1.105-1.135 billion, reflecting 29% yoy growth at the midpoint. In addition, gross margin is expected to remain healthy at 75-76% and operating margins at 25-26%.

For the full year, the company continues to expect revenue of $4.35-4.40 billion, which compares to expectations for $4.38 billion. Billings for the year are expected to be $5.56-5.64 billion, compared to the previous guidance range of $5.50-5.58 billion. In addition, both gross margin and operating margin were raised by ~100bps at the bottom end.

Even though the company continues to see supply chain challenges in the market, management talked about demand continuing to be higher than supply, which indicates a generally strong market.

We are continuing to address the supply chain challenges in a number of ways, including by increasing inventory purchase commitments, redesigning products, qualifying additional suppliers, and certain pricing actions.

We believe that even with these actions, demand will continue to outstrip supply. As a result, we expect backlog to continue to increase in 2022; and while the situation is very dynamic, we believe we will have access to sufficient inventory to meet our guidance.

Before reviewing our guidance, let's offer a few Fortinet specific observations in areas you may have heard discussed elsewhere. In Q2, we noted certain larger transactions with increased negotiating cycles. Also, linearity pushed to later in the quarter, and later in the last month of the quarter, due mainly to supply constraints. Lastly, close rates were strong and, importantly, the aggregate value of deals that pushed out were within our historical norms.

Even with a more challenging macro environment, includes larger deals having longer sales cycles, the reiteration of guidance and margin guidance raise at the midpoint should have been viewed as at least a neutral event, if not positive. I believe investors may have been expecting a guidance raise given the continued strength across the IT security market.

In addition, I believe management may be being prudent with their guidance given the uncertain environment. Guidance may prove to be conservative, but with expectations high heading into the quarter, investors might have been expecting more than reiterated guidance.

Valuation

Since the company reported earnings, the stock has fallen around 15%, significantly underperforming the broader market. Yes, valuation continues to be a challenge for the company as the stock receives a premium multiple, but FTNT has consistently shown their ability to produce a Rule of 40 score above the targeted level.

I believe the premium valuation could be the main thing investors focus on over the coming weeks as justification as to why the stock should trade lower. However, from a fundamental standpoint, the company continues to execute and perform according to expectations.

Chart
FTNT EV to Revenues (Forward) data by YCharts
Chart
FTNT EV to Revenues (Forward) data by YCharts

While the broader IT security landscape continues to receive premium forward revenue multiples, these have pulled back in accurate months, and rightfully so. Even with some of the faster growing companies like Cloudflare (NET), CrowdStrike (CRWD), and Zscaler (ZS) trading above 15x forward revenue, their valuations have pulled back quite a bit.

When it comes to FTNT, their forward revenue valuation has pulled back from over 15x forward revenue, now to under 10x forward revenue. Yes, revenue growth continues to remain healthy at 25%+ and operating margins of ~25%, but the current valuation does imply a lot of success is priced into the stock.

Typically any stock trading over 10x forward revenue should have revenue growth well above 30% with continued margin expansion.

In the case of FTNT, revenue growth has consistently been 25%+ with operating margins maintaining around 25%. While some could argue valuation is appropriate, I believe there could be some downside risk to valuation as investors re-set expectations around appropriate revenue multiples.

For now, I remain bullish around the company's operating trends, though am hesitant to become overly bullish. The 15% pullback does make me feel more comfortable around the long-term alpha potential and long-term investors should look to pick up some shares. While the stock may remain volatile in coming weeks as the remaining IT security companies report, I believe there is still a lot to like long-term.

Killexams : Fortinet: Evaluating The Prospects Amid Steepening Valuation
Fortinet Headquarters

hapabapa

This article was prepared by Eranda Kalhara, CFA in collaboration with Dilantha De Silva.

Fortinet, Inc. (NASDAQ:FTNT), a provider of network security appliances and Unified Threat Management network security solutions, has developed a centralized cybersecurity management plane while being at the forefront in the cybersecurity sector with its software-defined wide-area networking offerings with a global client base. Fortinet Security Fabric, cloud and Software-defined Wide Area Network (SD-WAN) offerings have been hailed by the users as a user-friendly system covering various security concerns. With higher spending on IT infrastructure development during the pandemic period combined with continuous deal wins, Fortinet witnessed significant revenue growth in 2020 and 2021, and this led to surging stock prices as well (FTNT stock is up 710% in the last 5 years).

With intensifying competition in the cybersecurity sector with substantial investments required to be in the game amid low traction on the work-from-home concept, the question is whether Fortinet will be able to expect the same growth momentum in the future. In this article, we will try to answer this important question.

Making The Most of The Global Distribution Network

During the pandemic, the normal business operations of many companies were affected. The pandemic expedited slow-paced digital transformations with a huge disruption of the normal workload. Many employees were required to log in to company networks through personal networks to access sensitive information, and this unexpected, unforeseen development exposed confidential data to potential attackers. While cybersecurity may have been seen as a nice-to-have luxury or a reactive measure put in place if something goes wrong, the disruption caused by the pandemic propelled cyber security to be recognized as a necessity for companies of every size and scale where the constantly evolving array of cyberattacks require the latest protection measures. Gartner estimates that spending on information security will total $172 billion in 2022. This spike is putting pressure on security teams to deliver more for every dollar invested. A survey conducted by Deloitte noted an increase in cybersecurity spending, with identity and access management, cyber monitoring and operations, and endpoint network security receiving bigger shares of the pie.

Exhibit 1: Budget allocation across cybersecurity domains

With the expected global economic slowdown, many companies will likely be taking a hard look at whether they need to cut expenses across the board. However, with the growing trend of companies having to deal with protecting sensitive data, applications, and users across on-premises and remote sites, public clouds, private clouds, and edge locations combined with the rising number of legal and social standards on cybersecurity will likely lead to robust long-term demand for cybersecurity solutions.

Fortinet is well positioned to benefit from this increase in global cybersecurity spending with a network of more than 20,000 channel partners worldwide, including distributors, resellers, value-added resellers, and managed service providers. In our opinion, the partner ecosystem supports Fortinet to penetrate smaller economies (the partner may provide value-added services including but not limited to customer onboarding services, post-customer acquisition services, maintenance, and updates). The company caters to more than 450,000 customers worldwide including most of the Fortune 100 companies.

Robust Ecosystem With High Switching Costs

In the tech space, especially in the ERP and cybersecurity sectors, the ecosystem around the products of a company matters a lot as it will support end users to become familiar with one developer, in return enjoying the ability to use the shared information with the developer in multiple locations. According to McKinsey, the bigger the ecosystem (in the sense of the number of different applications and ease of use, and the number of approved third-party vendors) the more likely the product is to attract and retain clients. As Fortinet’s firewall and UTM portfolio evolved to meet the higher demands of enterprises and service providers, Fortinet also expanded its offerings to include security products for networking, switching, sandboxing, security information, event management, and virtual instances. These different products are unified through the security fabric of Fortinet operating as a centralized management plane for a network's security products.

In addition to the above, Fortinet has expanded its business to cloud security, endpoint security, identity and access, and IoT security, providing a more vibrant ecosystem where existing and potential clients have the freedom to expand their operations without changing vendors. Fortinet has also become a leading player in the software-defined wide-area networking, or SD-WAN market, which is rapidly growing as companies move away from routers with expensive connections rented from telcos to SD-WAN which directly connects users to their requests via generic Internet connections. Today, there are only limited operators providing the same services in the SD-WAN market where the expected growth is expected to grow mid-double digits.

Considering the deep root connections of the security component of the overall cybersecurity system of any given product and heavy costs in implementing a new cybersecurity solution while maintaining the existing defense solutions, we believe leading cybersecurity companies can benefit from switching costs. In addition, the learning curve in getting used to a new system combined with potential operational disruption will further increase the switching costs. Despite the growth of network cybersecurity solutions which are sold as virtual and as-a-service offerings that reduce the burden of installing security appliances on-premises, we believe that switching costs will remain high, providing more leverage to established companies such as Fortinet. The company has established customer switching costs alongside its ability to upsell and cross-sell products to the existing customer base and has a nice runway for growth through its holistic approach to network and cloud cybersecurity.

Strategic Acquisitions to Fuel Market and Product Expansions

Fortinet has identified its limitations and the substantial investments required to maintain organic growth, and the company is focused on acquiring smaller peers that could add value to its ecosystem in the long run. This is a strategy that we believe will help Fortinet maintain the stellar growth rates seen in the last few years. Overall, Fortinet has closed 17 deals with the most accurate acquisition being Sken.ai on Jul 7, 2021. The acquisition of AccelOps helped the company in correlating visibility and threat intelligence to its entire network security ecosystem and simultaneously has extended it to third-party vendor solutions. Intending to expand the cloud services as well as its solution portfolio, Fortinet acquired Meru Networks while the acquisitions of Coyote Point and XDN have not only helped it broaden the product offerings but also the customer base and geographic reach.

The acquisition of Sken.ai, a privately held startup, will help the company accelerate its penetration of the DevSecOps market and the acquisition of ShieldX will enable the company to gain a more comprehensive view of end users, workstations, and OT devices. These strategic acquisitions support the hypothesis that the company is seeking tuck-in acquisitions to increase its capabilities in areas such as cloud-based security technologies, Machine Learning, and automation.

The Growing Subscription Base and Continued Deal Wins

Fortinet provides subscription-based services. The continuous revenue stream resulting from the addition of new customers and the steady subscription revenue will support the company in generating stable revenue while leaving room for margin expansion through repeat revenue from a single customer which increases the customer lifetime value. Subscription-based service is a high gross margin business (approximately 80%) compared with the hardware-centric model. The high attach rate of subscription-based services, including technical support and the latest threat prevention updates, have helped spur billings growth (revenue plus the change in deferred revenue) and provide recurring revenue streams to the company. We have to appreciate the efforts of the management to increase the customer base which has rippling effects on the growth of subscription-based revenue. We believe that this strategy will continue to Boost the company’s top and bottom-line performances with subscription revenue remaining a larger portion of overall revenue compared with products. In Q1, security subscription services revenue was up 23% to $313 million].

Fortinet has become a globally recognized brand with a customer base of over 450,000. This vast customer base presents the company with an opportunity to upsell products within its installed user base. Fortinet’s count of deals worth at least $500,000 grew from 425 in 2018 to 639 in 2020 (and 602 through the first three quarters of 2021) and 41% of 2021 FortiGate firewall billings came from high-end solutions versus 51% from midrange and 27% from entry-level. Management expects bookings in the range of $1.325 billion to $1.385 billion for the second quarter of this year, which at the midpoint represents bookings growth of 40%. The company derives a significant portion of total sales from its top 10 biggest distributors, of which Exclusive Networks Group has the highest share and accounted for 31% of 2021 total revenue followed by Ingram Micro’s 12%.

Substantial Investments to Support Growth

With the increasing popularity of the working from home concept opening the corporate infrastructure to more spam and malicious attacks combined with growing complexities requested and expected by clients, every cybersecurity company must continuously invest in broadening its capabilities to survive in this highly competitive market. Over the last few years, Fortinet has invested heavily to enhance its sales and marketing capabilities, particularly by increasing the sales force. This has put pressure on operating margins.

In contrast to what we have seen in the last couple of years, the growing fears of a global recession have led to a change in consumer behavior where they are not likely to go ahead with full-fledged investments in their cyber-security infrastructure. Most of Fortinet’s peers have noticed that companies have been breaking their cybersecurity investment plans into passes and implementing the initial plans over longer periods instead of making a single large investment. Even though we are certain that growing subscription levels will support stable growth for Fortinet, we believe now is not the time to be overly optimistic about what is in store for the company in the next couple of years.

Despite the high switching costs we discussed earlier, Fortinet faces competition from its peers which forces the company to ensure prompt delivery of products and invest in product development, which may lead to an erosion in operating margins in the short run too.

Thoughts on Valuation

When it comes to high-growth companies, we often see stellar revenue growth but disappointing earnings. More often than not, we do not see any profits at all, which makes investing in these high-growth companies a high-risk/high-reward bet. Fortinet, although growing fast, is a profitable company. In fact, the company has been GAAP profitable in each of the last 10 years. The company, however, is valued at a premium in the market compared to the information technology sector. The forward P/E of 71 at which the company is valued today certainly suggests that years of growth is already baked into the current market value of the company. This is neither a good thing nor a bad thing, in our opinion, but given the margin pressure we expect in the coming quarters, we are not comfortable investing in Fortinet today. This does not mean that Fortinet is not an attractive company, and we will pounce on any opportunity to invest in Fortinet at a cheaper valuation or if company fundamentals materially change, suggesting that the current valuation is not a stretch.

Takeaway

Fortinet is one of the very few cybersecurity companies that we follow at Leads From Gurus, and we believe the company has a lot to offer both its customers and shareholders in the long run. Through strategic investments and deals, the company seems well-positioned to make the most of the positivity surrounding the global cybersecurity industry.

Killexams : Fortinet Stock: Bear vs. Bull No result found, try new keyword!Here are the bear and bull cases on Fortinet that investors need to know about. Any bear case against high-growth stocks these days tends to start with valuation, and Fortinet is no exception. Shares ... Sun, 24 Jul 2022 01:36:00 -0500 en-us text/html https://www.msn.com/en-us/money/topstocks/fortinet-stock-bear-vs-bull/ar-AAZUz32 Killexams : Fortinet Unfurls Cloud Security Risk Prioritization Service

At the AWS re:Inforce event, Fortinet today launched a cloud service that leverages a risk scoring algorithm that enables security teams to prioritize risks to cloud computing environments.

Vince Hwang, senior director for cloud at Fortinet, said the FortiCNP service is based on the Resource Risks Insights technology that Fortinet developed to surface those insights.

The first incarnation of FortiCNP is tightly integrated with a wide range of AWS services, said Hwang. It automatically triggers remediations to block threats identified by the FortiCNP service that continuously scans and monitors changes to cloud data using threat intelligence and tools provided by the FortiGuard Labs arm of Fortinet.

FortiCNP is also integrated with the existing Fortinet Security Fabric, a security mesh platform that Fortinet developed to centralize security management across distributed computing environments as well as third-party IT management platforms from ServiceNow and Atlassian, he noted.

The goal is to reduce the level of operational friction that cybersecurity teams currently encounter when securing cloud environments, said Hwang.

Automation is critical at a time when most cybersecurity teams are chronically understaffed, said Hwang. As the overall attack surface continues to expand and more application workloads are deployed in the cloud, cybersecurity teams will not be able to keep pace unless more processes are automated, he added.

In general, cybersecurity teams are being overwhelmed by issues—such as misconfiguration of cloud services—that all represent different levels of actual risk, noted Hwang. Most cloud services are provisioned by developers that tend to have a limited amount of cybersecurity expertise. That often leads to cloud services being misconfigured. Cybercriminals, of course, have become very adept at scanning for those misconfigurations. The FortiCNP service makes it easier for cybersecurity teams to identify which of those misconfigurations might represent a more critical threat than another based on the data exposed, said Hwang.

While cloud platforms are generally more secure than on-premises IT environments, the processes used to provision and deploy applications are frequently flawed. In the name of developer productivity, cybersecurity professionals often are not asked to review deployments of cloud applications. That puts cybersecurity teams in the unenviable position of being asked to ensure the security of cloud applications after they have already been deployed.

The degree to which that approach to deploying cloud applications will continue is debatable. In the wake of a series of high-profile security breaches, many organizations are embracing DevSecOps workflows to ensure the integrity of software supply chains, which typically includes a review of cloud application security before an application is deployed.

However, as long as humans are involved in the process, the odds are high that mistakes will be made. Cybersecurity teams will always need to review cloud security posture and remediate vulnerabilities whenever required. The hope is that as application development becomes more secure, the number of cloud application security issues that might be encountered will decline. Unfortunately, there are thousands of applications that have already been deployed. Cybersecurity teams are going to have to find a way to quickly remediate them at scale on an ongoing basis.

Killexams : Comcast Business, Fortinet Partner to Deliver Enterprises New SASE & SSE Solutions

Comcast Business announced a strategic partnership with Fortinet, a global leader in broad, integrated and automated cybersecurity solutions, to deliver enterprises a new set of secure access service edge (SASE), and security service edge (SSE) solutions to help enterprises protect their distributed workforces using a cloud-delivered approach to security policy enforcement. 

This collaboration expands Comcast Business’s managed services expertise, while giving enterprises greater flexibility to choose the cloud architecture and vendor mix that is right for them.

In today’s work-from-anywhere world, IT leaders are challenged with balancing employee convenience with securing their networks. New security architectures, such as SASE, which converges networking and security via SD-WAN and cloud-delivered security, and SSE, the security foundation of SASE, enable enterprises to strengthen their security posture while enhancing employees’ experience, regardless of their location. In fact, according to a accurate Foundry CIO research study sponsored by Masergy (a Comcast Business company) and Fortinet, the overwhelming majority (98%) of enterprise IT leaders surveyed cited the convergence of network and security as critical or very important, while 94% said their adoption of SASE solutions has accelerated.

The new Comcast Business offerings — delivered through Comcast Business Secure Gateways —

give enterprises the option to choose from either SASE or SSE solutions backed by Fortinet’s security-driven networking technology and Equinix’s flexible cloud connection Equinix FabricÔ for a complete secure network service. Enterprises wanting to enable safe access to cloud and web services can take advantage of the Comcast Business SSE solution, which brings together multiple cloud-delivered network security technologies in a fully-hosted environment. The Comcast Business SASE solution provides this hosted SSE security architecture combined with zero trust capabilities and any of Comcast Business’s SD-WAN solutions.

Comcast Business Secure Gateways provide a fully-hosted set of SASE or SSE services covering a broad range of security networking solutions for Firewall-as-a-Service (FWaaS), Intrusion Prevention (IPS), Data Loss Prevention (DLP), Cloud Access Security Brokers (CASB), and Zero Trust Network Access (ZTNA). Comcast Business Secure Gateways are hosted across the United States at Equinix data centers, offering up to 10 gigabits per second (Gbps) of cloud connectivity for public, private, or hybrid cloud deployments. The Equinix FabricÔ enables support of Amazon Web Services, Microsoft Azure, Google Cloud, IBM and more than 200 SaaS providers.

Amit Verma, Chief Technology Officer, Enterprise Solutions, Comcast Business
By expanding our relationship with Fortinet, we are offering our clients more choice and the flexibility to choose a solution that works for them – while providing some of the latest security solutions to help keep them ready for the day – today and tomorrow.

John Maddison, EVP of products and CMO, Fortinet
In order to enhance user experience, reduce complexity, and Boost their security posture against today’s most advanced and persistent threats, organizations must adopt solutions that converge networking and security. We’re pleased to work closely with Comcast Business to build SASE services that support customers at any stage of digital innovation with Fortinet’s industry leading security-driven networking technology.

Killexams : Fortinet empowers teams to proactively manage cloud risk with new cloud-native protection offering, available now on AWS

News summary

Fortinet (NASDAQ: FTNT), a global leader in broad, integrated and automated cyber security solutions, today announced FortiCNP, a new built-in-the-cloud offering that correlates security findings from across an organisation’s cloud footprint to facilitate friction-free cloud security operations. FortiCNP’s patented Resource Risk Insights (RRI) technology produces context-rich, actionable insights that help teams prioritise the remediation and mitigation of risks with the highest potential impact on cloud workload security without slowing down the business.

Also announced today, Fortinet is an Amazon Web Services (AWS) launch partner for Amazon GuardDuty Malware Protection, which provides agentless malware detection capabilities across AWS data stores, disk volumes and workload images. FortiCNP supports Amazon GuardDuty Malware Protection, delivering near real-time threat protection with zero-permission capabilities to actively scan running workloads with no impact or delays to operations.

The rapid pace of cloud adoption as part of a hybrid IT architecture allows organisations to achieve faster time to market and increased responsiveness to customer needs. However, the cloud can increase overall security risk, which is often addressed by adding new security solutions to an organisation’s existing infrastructure. Each of these solutions comes with a litany of alerts that often require manual analysis and can quickly compound across an organisation’s cloud deployment.

“Without the proper tools, security professionals must manually sift through hundreds, if not thousands, of security alerts on a daily basis,” said Doug Cahill, Vice-President, Analyst Services and Senior Analyst at Enterprise Strategy Group (ESG). “Inundated with alerts, teams can face decreased productivity, inefficient workflows and security risks accumulating faster than they can be addressed. FortiCNP helps cut through the noise, pointing teams to the security alerts that matter most.”

Customers are already experiencing the benefits of FortiCNP’s approach to cloud-native risk management: “FortiCNP gives us comprehensive cloud visibility with an intuitive dashboard that allows us to easily track risk management over time,” said Caio Hyppolito, Chief Technology Officer (CTO) at BK Bank. “Most importantly, it enables our team to focus on securing high-priority resources instead of spending time working through long lists of security findings. Integrations with the products we already have allow us to get even more value out of our deployment and allow broader visibility and easier, more proactive cloud security management.”

Partners are also leveraging FortiCNP to enhance their offerings:

“As an AWS Level 1 MSSP Competency Partner, Observian is dedicated to ensuring our service offerings support customers in building scalable, secure cloud deployments. Observian is thrilled to deliver a new service featuring Fortinet’s new Cloud-Native Protection solution, FortiCNP, with Observian’s trusted and proven managed detection and response services,” said Scott Plamondon, Co-Founder and VP of Architecture at Observian. “FortiCNP allows customers to easily integrate, more quickly operationalise and immediately benefit from AWS’s native-cloud security services with more targeted and actionable alerts tuned to their needs and less noise. Our customers that rely on Observian’s Security Operations team will benefit from our ability to even better triage and report on those alerts 24/7.”

A defining feature of FortiCNP is integration with AWS security products and services, and the Fortinet Security Fabric, which helps organisations more effectively secure their cloud environments and maximise their cloud security investments.

"At AWS, we provide our customers with smarter tools to easily take action and mitigate risk faster,” said Jon Ramsey, Vice-President (VP) AWS Security. "Security partners like Fortinet with their FortiCNP offering built on AWS and integrated with our security services like Amazon GuardDuty give customers a choice to simplify and accelerate their cloud journey with cloud-native security services."

FortiCNP delivers the following features that allow security teams to effectively manage risk in the cloud:

  • FortiCNP Resource Risk Insights (RRI) leverages a patented risk score algorithm to contextualise security findings from Fortinet Cloud Security solutions and AWS products and services to provide teams with prioritised, context-rich and actionable insights about resources that present the highest risk and need immediate attention.
  • By analysing, correlating and contextualising security findings from AWS cloud security services with FortiCNP, customers maximise the value and benefit from easy deployment capabilities offered by Amazon GuardDuty Malware Protection, Amazon Inspector, AWS Security Hub, AWS CloudTrail and AWS Organizations.
  • Integrations with Amazon GuardDuty Malware Protection leverage a zero-permission, agentless approach for detecting malware throughout the data supply chain by scanning cloud data stores, disk volumes and workload images.
  • Integrations with digital workflow solutions turn FortiCNP RRIs into intuitively actionable workflow tasks as part of the cloud infrastructure life cycle.
  • For customers utilising Fortinet Cloud Security solutions such as FortiGate-VM and FortiWeb, RRIs will be able to trigger stop-gap remediations to block high-impact threats.
  • FortiCNP continuously scans and monitors changes to cloud data with industry-leading threat intelligence and content scanning powered by FortiGuard Labs.

FortiCNP will be continually expanded to ingest more types of cloud security findings to provide broader context across more cloud workloads. Enabling consistent workflows that scale security across the public cloud helps teams Boost security coverage, productivity and risk mitigation – at the speed of the cloud. Cloud-native integrations facilitate reduced friction from deployment through operations. With consistent workflows utilising cloud-native services across multiple clouds, security teams will no longer be required to master the intricacies of each cloud platform’s security service operational model. This will help security teams increase productivity by effectively working through cloud security backlog, mitigating risk and quantifiably improving cloud security over time.

“FortiCNP is the latest example of Fortinet’s commitment to delivering Fabric solutions that extend enterprise security with cloud-native integrations,” said John Maddison, EVP of Products and CMO at Fortinet. “We’re pleased to continue to deliver solutions that allow security professionals to transition from time-consuming triage and manual analysis processes to proactively securing their cloud workloads and easily understand their cloud security risk.”

Today’s announcement builds on Fortinet and AWS’s relationship to support customers in accelerating their journey to AWS. Fortinet has also been named an AWS Security Competency Partner, with FortiCNP serving as the latest example of Fortinet’s commitment to delivering purpose-built cloud security solutions that integrate with AWS products and solutions. Fortinet delivers one of the broadest sets of use cases with comprehensive security for AWS workloads including firewall, security gateway, intrusion prevention and web application security. With flexible procurement options in AWS Marketplace, including contract and consumption offerings and a range of available form factors, including software as a service (SaaS), virtual machine (VM), container and application programming interface (API) based protection, customers can address a broad variety of AWS security and procurement requirements to protect their AWS workloads.

Killexams : Comcast Business Partners with Fortinet to Secure Enterprise Application Access with New SASE and SSE Solutions

Partnership expands managed services expertise; Offers enterprises secure, flexible network infrastructure delivered as a service

PHILADELPHIA, August 01, 2022--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Comcast Business today announced a strategic partnership with Fortinet® (NASDAQ: FTNT), a global leader in broad, integrated and automated cybersecurity solutions, to deliver enterprises a new set of secure access service edge (SASE), and security service edge (SSE) solutions to help enterprises protect their distributed workforces using a cloud-delivered approach to security policy enforcement. This collaboration expands Comcast Business’s managed services expertise, while giving enterprises greater flexibility to choose the cloud architecture and vendor mix that is right for them.

In today’s work-from-anywhere world, IT leaders are challenged with balancing employee convenience with securing their networks. New security architectures, such as SASE, which converges networking and security via SD-WAN and cloud-delivered security, and SSE, the security foundation of SASE, enable enterprises to strengthen their security posture while enhancing employees’ experience, regardless of their location. In fact, according to a accurate Foundry CIO research study sponsored by Masergy (a Comcast Business company) and Fortinet, the overwhelming majority (98%) of enterprise IT leaders surveyed cited the convergence of network and security as critical or very important, while 94% said their adoption of SASE solutions has accelerated.

The new Comcast Business offerings — delivered through Comcast Business Secure Gateways — give enterprises the option to choose from either SASE or SSE solutions backed by Fortinet’s security-driven networking technology and Equinix’s flexible cloud connection Equinix Fabric™ for a complete secure network service. Enterprises wanting to enable safe access to cloud and web services can take advantage of the Comcast Business SSE solution, which brings together multiple cloud-delivered network security technologies in a fully-hosted environment. The Comcast Business SASE solution provides this hosted SSE security architecture combined with zero trust capabilities and any of Comcast Business’s SD-WAN solutions.

"In today’s dynamic world, no two companies are alike and very few are the same as they were just two years ago," said Amit Verma, Chief Technology Officer, Enterprise Solutions, Comcast Business. "By expanding our relationship with Fortinet, we are offering our clients more choice and the flexibility to choose a solution that works for them – while providing some of the latest security solutions to help keep them ready for the day – today and tomorrow."

Comcast Business Secure Gateways provide a fully-hosted set of SASE or SSE services covering a broad range of security networking solutions for Firewall-as-a-Service (FWaaS), Intrusion Prevention (IPS), Data Loss Prevention (DLP), Cloud Access Security Brokers (CASB), and Zero Trust Network Access (ZTNA). Comcast Business Secure Gateways are hosted across the United States at Equinix data centers, offering up to 10 gigabits per second (Gbps) of cloud connectivity for public, private, or hybrid cloud deployments. The Equinix Fabric™ enables support of Amazon Web Services, Microsoft Azure, Google Cloud, IBM and more than 200 SaaS providers.

"In order to enhance user experience, reduce complexity, and Boost their security posture against today’s most advanced and persistent threats, organizations must adopt solutions that converge networking and security," said John Maddison, EVP of products and CMO, Fortinet. "We’re pleased to work closely with Comcast Business to build SASE services that support customers at any stage of digital innovation with Fortinet’s industry leading security-driven networking technology."

Killexams : Fortinet Empowers Teams to Proactively Manage Cloud Risk with New Cloud-native Protection ...

SUNNYVALE, Calif., July 26, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- AWS re:Inforce

News Summary

Fortinet ® (NASDAQ: FTNT), a global leader in broad, integrated, and automated cybersecurity solutions, today announced FortiCNP, a new built-in-the-cloud offering that correlates security findings from across an organization’s cloud footprint to facilitate friction-free cloud security operations. FortiCNP’s patented Resource Risk Insights (RRI)TM technology produces context-rich, actionable insights that help teams prioritize the remediation and mitigation of risks with the highest potential impact on cloud workload security without slowing down the business.

Also announced today, Fortinet is an Amazon Web Services (AWS) Launch Partner for Amazon GuardDuty Malware Protection, which provides agentless malware detection capabilities across AWS data stores, disk volumes, and workload images. FortiCNP supports Amazon GuardDuty Malware Protection, delivering near-real-time threat protection with zero-permission capabilities to actively scan running workloads with no impact or delays to operations.

The rapid pace of cloud adoption as part of a hybrid IT architecture allows organizations to achieve faster time to market and increased responsiveness to customer needs. However, the cloud can increase overall security risk, which is often addressed by adding new security solutions to an organization’s existing infrastructure. Each of these solutions comes with a litany of alerts that often require manual analysis and can quickly compound across an organization’s cloud deployment.

“Without the proper tools, security professionals must manually sift through hundreds, if not thousands, of security alerts on a daily basis,” said Doug Cahill, Vice President, Analyst Services and Senior Analyst at Enterprise Strategy Group (ESG). “Inundated with alerts, teams can face decreased productivity, inefficient workflows, and security risks accumulating faster than they can be addressed. FortiCNP helps cut through the noise, pointing teams to the security alerts that matter most.”

Customers are already experiencing the benefits of FortiCNP’s approach to cloud-native risk management:

“FortiCNP gives us comprehensive cloud visibility with an intuitive dashboard that allows us to easily track risk management over time,” said Caio Hyppolito, Chief Technology Officer (CTO) at BK Bank. “Most importantly, it enables our team to focus on securing high-priority resources instead of spending time working through long lists of security findings. Integrations with the products we already have allow us to get even more value out of our deployment and allow broader visibility and easier, more proactive cloud security management.”

Partners are also leveraging FortiCNP to enhance their offerings:

“As an AWS Level 1 MSSP Competency Partner, Observian is dedicated to ensuring our service offerings support customers in building scalable, secure cloud deployments. Observian is thrilled to deliver a new service featuring Fortinet’s new Cloud-Native Protection solution, FortiCNP, with Observian’s trusted and proven managed detection and response services,” said Scott Plamondon, Co-Founder and VP of Architecture at Observian. “FortiCNP allows customers to easily integrate, more quickly operationalize, and immediately benefit from AWS’s native-cloud security services with more targeted and actionable alerts tuned to their needs and less noise. Our customers that rely on Observian’s Security Operations team will benefit from our ability to even better triage and report on those alerts 24/7.”

A defining feature of FortiCNP is integration with AWS security products and services, and the Fortinet Security Fabric, which helps organizations more effectively secure their cloud environments and maximize their cloud security investments.

"At AWS, we provide our customers with smarter tools to easily take action and mitigate risk faster,” said Jon Ramsey, Vice President (VP) AWS Security. "Security Partners like Fortinet with their FortiCNP offering built on AWS and integrated with our security services like Amazon GuardDuty give customers a choice to simplify and accelerate their cloud journey with cloud-native security services."

FortiCNP delivers the following features that allow security teams to effectively manage risk in the cloud:

  • FortiCNP Resource Risk Insights (RRI)TM leverages a patented risk score algorithm to contextualize security findings from Fortinet Cloud Security solutions and AWS products and services to provide teams with prioritized, context-rich, and actionable insights about resources that present the highest risk and need immediate attention.
  • By analyzing, correlating, and contextualizing security findings from AWS cloud security services with FortiCNP, customers maximize the value and benefit from easy deployment capabilities offered by Amazon GuardDuty Malware Protection, Amazon Inspector, AWS Security Hub, AWS CloudTrail, and AWS Organizations.
  • Integrations with Amazon GuardDuty Malware Protection leverage a zero-permission, agentless approach for detecting malware throughout the data supply chain by scanning cloud data stores, disk volumes, and workload images.
  • Integrations with digital workflow solutions turn FortiCNP RRIs into intuitively actionable workflow tasks as part of the cloud infrastructure lifecycle.
  • For customers utilizing Fortinet Cloud Security solutions such as FortiGate-VM and FortiWeb, RRIs will be able to trigger stop-gap remediations to block high-impact threats.
  • FortiCNP continuously scans and monitors changes to cloud data with industry-leading threat intelligence and content scanning powered by FortiGuard Labs.

FortiCNP will be continually expanded to ingest more types of cloud security findings to provide broader context across more cloud workloads. Enabling consistent workflows that scale security across the public cloud helps teams Boost security coverage, productivity, and risk mitigation—at the speed of the cloud. Cloud-native integrations facilitate reduced friction from deployment through operations. With consistent workflows utilizing cloud-native services across multiple clouds, security teams will no longer be required to master the intricacies of each cloud platform’s security service operational model. This will help security teams increase productivity by effectively working through cloud security backlog, mitigating risk, and quantifiably improving cloud security over time.

“FortiCNP is the latest example of Fortinet’s commitment to delivering Fabric solutions that extend enterprise security with cloud-native integrations,” said John Maddison, EVP of Products and CMO at Fortinet. “We’re pleased to continue to deliver solutions that allow security professionals to transition from time-consuming triage and manual analysis processes to proactively securing their cloud workloads and easily understand their cloud security risk.”

Today’s announcement builds on Fortinet and AWS’ relationship to support customers in accelerating their journey to AWS. Fortinet has also been named an AWS Security Competency Partner, with FortiCNP serving as the latest example of Fortinet’s commitment to delivering purpose-built cloud security solutions that integrate with AWS products and solutions. Fortinet delivers one of the broadest sets of use cases with comprehensive security for AWS workloads including firewall, security gateway, intrusion prevention, and web application security. With flexible procurement options in AWS Marketplace, including contract and consumption offerings, and a range of available form factors, including Software-as-a-Service (SaaS), virtual machine (VM), container, and application programming interface (API) based protection, customers can address a broad variety of AWS security and procurement requirements to protect their AWS workloads.
