Fortinet offers secure access support to Microsoft Azure

Fortinet has announced support for secure access to the Microsoft Azure cloud platform.

As per the release making the announcement, customers can immediately benefit from a secure virtual private network (VPN) access to Microsoft’s Azure cloud offering while leveraging Fortinet’s broad and multi-layered security technologies across network, application and content security.

“Microsoft Azure’s cloud scalability, performance and economic benefits make it a convincing choice for customers wanting to leverage the cloud while continuing to use existing on-premises infrastructure,” said Venkat Gattamneni, senior product marketing manager – Microsoft Azure, Microsoft.

“These customers require secure VPN access from office and branch networks to the cloud, and Fortinet’s next-generation firewall platforms extend on-premises data centres to the cloud while enabling security,” added Gattamneni.

All Fortinet FortiGate security appliances offer full support for VPN access to the Microsoft Azure Virtual Network service, allowing organizations to quickly and easily create secure VPN tunnels linking on-premise networks and cloud environments.

In addition, all FortiGate appliances uniquely deliver centralised management of virtualised and physical infrastructures through a ‘single-pane-of-glass’ approach to management.

“As we work with customers to extend on-premises infrastructure to the cloud using Microsoft Azure, we need to ensure both a high level of security and seamless data access across multiple environments,” said Michael Xie, Founder, CTO and President, Fortinet.
