Fortinet, a leading network security provider and unified threat management (UTM) solutions, has announced four new virtual appliances at GITEX TECHNOLOGY WEEK.

The FortiGate, FortiManager, FortiAnalyzer and FortiMail virtual appliances combine with physical appliances to provide customers with a choice of physical and virtual form factors, working together to mitigate security blind spots and increase security controls within virtualised infrastructure environments. These solutions extend Fortinet’s ability to deliver security across virtualised and cloud environments.

Fortinet has been securing virtual architectures since the introduction of Virtual Domain (VDOM) technology in 2004. Large enterprises also rely on Fortinet technology to protect the data within their private and hybrid cloud networks.

Bashar Bashaireh, Regional Director of Fortinet Middle East, says: “While there are a few security companies dabbling with products that protect the network perimeter and the virtual layer, Fortinet offers the full breadth of content and network security in an integrated appliance designed to protect both the network perimeter and virtual layers.

“By providing deeper integration into the virtual environment, we are now positioned to expand our security market leadership and facilitate security within the ‘as-a-service’ movement.”

The risks associated with blind spots in the  virtual environment, along with the lack of security controls, become increasingly problematic as the size of virtual environments grow, he adds.
