Fortinet Public Cloud Security
Secure Your Public Cloud Infrastructure and Workloads

Gain Visibility and Control Over Your Cloud Environments and Applications

Organizations are increasingly deploying a variety of workloads across multiple clouds. In turn, business-critical data and services are increasingly scattered across this distributed infrastructure. Using the shared responsibility model as a guiding principle, enterprises rely on cloud providers to protect the network, storage, and computing layers, while enterprises own the security for everything that is built, deployed, or stored in the public cloud. Due to multi-cloud adoption, most enterprises maintain heterogeneous environments, with tools from each cloud platform differing significantly.

Public Cloud Security Use Cases:

Security in the cloud is intended to increase the organizations confidence to deploy applications in the cloud and by such improve overall organizational agility and ability to respond to market demand. By leveraging Fortinet’s Security Fabric solutions to deploy use case driven security capabilities, organizations benefit from market leading security with streamlined management functionality. Following is a set of common deployment scenarios of Fortinet’s Security Fabric:

Platform Security:

SaaS Visibility and Control

Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) application usage is often unregulated and unsecure. A lack of visibility and control on SaaS applications usage heightens risk.


FortiCASB-SaaS leverages the SaaS application API to monitor all SaaS activity and configuration of multiple SaaS services.

FortiCASB-SaaS provides centralized, detailed visibility on all SaaS applications usage. This enables organizations to implement uniform application control and security policies, protect their sensitive data against advanced threats, and support security compliance and governance.


  • Organizations gain full visibility over usage of SaaS applications including their potential to spread malware or leak data
  • Provides full support for major SaaS applications such as, Microsoft Office 365, etc.

Cloud Infrastructure Visibility and Control

As cloud use increases, so does the likelihood of misconfiguration. Analysts estimate that by 2023, misconfiguration will cause 99% of cloud-related risk, leading to disrupted services and unexpected costs.


FortiCWP leverages the public cloud management API to monitor activity and configuration of multiple cloud resources. It continuously evaluates configurations across regions and public cloud types, and provides consistent visibility. The solution simplifies regulatory compliance violation reporting, and enhances compliance by providing guidance on security best practices. It also offers threat and risk management tools that help trace misconfigurations to their source.    


  • Consistent compliance reporting across multiple clouds
  • Dynamic cloud heat map and threat maps
  • Streamlined incident investigation

Compliance in the Cloud

For many organizations, it is a time consuming burden to achieve compliance with PCI DSS, HIPPA, SOX, GDPR, and other regulation mandates.


FortiCWP aggregates and organizes security information from multiple cloud services and API’s into meaningful compliance reports and live compliance dashboards.

FortiSIEM provides a broader view of compliance across multiple clouds, Fortinet Security Fabric products and third-party products. It can create compliance reports at the push of a button.

FortiAnalyzer collects logs from Fortinet Security Fabric elements, and FortiManager enables changes to be audited, reviewed, approved, and implemented. Together, they close the loop on compliance gap mitigation. All systems support automated processes to facilitate compliance policy management and workflow, reducing risk when policies are changed.


  • Automated compliance auditing and reporting for on-premises and cloud environments.

Cloud Based Security Management and Analytics

Using legacy management tools alongside new technologies creates complex incompatibilities, especially when seeking to manage from the cloud.


Leverage the multi-regional and global presence of top cloud infrastructure providers to deploy centralized and global security management and analytics systems in the cloud. FortiManager-VM, FortiAnalyzer-VM, and FortiSIEM-VM can all be deployed in the cloud to scale and globalize.


  • Centralized, unified security management and visibility 
  • Enhanced audit and compliance reporting
  • Faster incident response 
  • Improved operational and cost efficiency, reducing risk
  • Increased ability to automate security management
