Fortinet unveils on-demand, pay-as-you-go data centre firewall for AWS

With this expanded offering, enterprise customers now have the ability to deploy and scale the solution to meet immediate and growing security demands, while also maintaining predictable cost models.

Fortinet announced today that it has expanded its solution set for Amazon Web Services (AWS) to include pay-as-you-go licensing for its FortiGate-VM virtualised data centre firewall. 

According to the network security provider, FortiGate-VM for AWS provides enterprise customers with a scalable and reliable solution to secure their cloud-based workloads that meet compliance requirements.

The expanded offering allows customers to consume FortiGate-VM in the same simple and flexible manner as they would with the AWS infrastructure itself when the service is procured via AWS Marketplace for on-demand delivery with integrated metering, billing and payments.

In a media statement, Fortinet said that a significant benefit of the new on-demand, pay-as-you-go option is the ability to deploy and scale the solution to meet immediate and growing security demands, while also maintaining predictable cost models. New AWS Marketplace annual subscription options allow potential CAPEX savings of up to 40 percent as compared to hourly pricing over the same 12-month period.

"We are excited to have FortiGate-VM for AWS available via annual and hourly subscription on AWS Marketplace," said Terry Hanold, vice president, cloud commerce, Amazon Web Services, Inc. "Customers can easily and quickly purchase FortiGate-VM on AWS Marketplace to help provide additional layers of protection for their workloads running on AWS."
