Channel Middle East - - Front Line -

Cy­ber se­cu­rity ven­dor Symantec Corp and Fortinet, a global provider of in­te­grated and au­to­mated cy­ber se­cu­rity solutions, have an­nounced an ex­pan­sive part­ner­ship agree­ment to pro­vide cus­tomers with the in­dus­try’s most com­pre­hen­sive and ro­bust se­cu­rity solutions.

Un­der the ac­cord, Fortinet’s next-gen­er­a­tion fire­wall (NGFW) ca­pa­bil­i­ties are planned to be in­te­grated into Symantec’s cloud-de­liv­ered Web Se­cu­rity Ser­vice (WSS). In ad­di­tion, Symantec’s end­point pro­tec­tion solutions are also planned to be in­te­grated into the Fortinet Se­cu­rity Fab­ric plat­form.

Ac­cord­ing to the two IT se­cu­rity ven­dors, the tech­nol­ogy part­ner­ship pro­vides es­sen­tial se­cu­rity con­trols across end­point, net­work, and cloud en­vi­ron­ments that are crit­i­cal to en­forc­ing the Zero Trust se­cu­rity frame­work.

“As the first step in this tech­nol­ogy part­ner­ship, we plan to de­liver best-of-breed se­cu­rity through the com­bi­na­tion of en­ter­prise-class ad­vanced fire­wall con­trols to Symantec’s in­dus­trylead­ing net­work se­cu­rity ser­vice,” said Art Gilliland, ex­ec­u­tive vice pres­i­dent and gen­eral man­ager, En­ter­prise Prod­ucts, Symantec. “Through this part­ner­ship, we hope to pro­vide joint cus­tomers the power of Symantec’s In­te­grated Cy­ber De­fense Plat­form bol­stered by Fortinet’s NGFW in an in­te­grated so­lu­tion that’s easy to use and de­ploy.”

John Mad­di­son, se­nior vice pres­i­dent of prod­ucts and solutions, Fortinet, said: “With to­day’s an­nounce­ment, two in­dus­try lead­ers are com­ing to­gether to pro­vide en­ter­prise­class ca­pa­bil­i­ties across cloud, net­work, and end­point se­cu­rity.”

Mad­di­son said upon com­ple­tion of the in­te­gra­tion, Symantec cloud web gate­way cus­tomers will be able to ben­e­fit from Fortinet’s en­ter­prise-class ad­vanced fire­wall con­trols.
