Network security specialist Fortinet today announced enhancements to its existing FortiWeb-VM Web Application Firewalls (WAFs) for Amazon Web Services (AWS) to include on-demand, pay-as-you-go offerings.
FortiWeb-VM for AWS, which can now be utilised on an hourly or annual subscription basis, complements existing Bring Your Own License (BYOL) options and helps AWS enterprise customers secure their cloud-based Web applications and meet PCI DSS compliance requirements.
"We are excited to have FortiWeb-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 now easily and quickly purchase FortiWeb-VM on AWS Marketplace to help provide additional layers of protection for their workloads running on AWS."
FortiWeb-VM is designed to provide multiple protection layers against today's threats that target Web applications, including cross-site scripting, SQL injection, buffer overflows, file inclusion, cookie poisoning, schema poisoning, denial of service (at both the application and network layer) and many others.
