has extended its virtualized Security Fabric applications to Amazon Web

managed through a centralized console.
FortiSandbox is now available as Pay-As-You-Go On Demand in AWS Marketplace and provides a cloud-based malware sandbox that automatically analyzes suspicious programs and offers detection against zero-day threats for applications and data hosted on AWS.
FortiSIEM, AWS-integrated security information and event management solution, is available now as BYOL in AWS Marketplace, delivering comprehensive visibility and analytics of both security and network operations for a holistic view of threat data across an organization.
