MARCH 1, 2016 • News Advisory

Expanded partnership to provide seamless security visibility, analysis and management for mid-size and enterprise customers

SAN FRANCISCO, Calif. RSA Conference 2016 - March 1, 2016 Fortinet (NASDAQ: FTNT), a global leader in high-performance cyber security solutions and Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) today introduced a new, integrated security bundle that addresses the evolving security requirements of mid-size and enterprise customers. The new offering delivers enhanced interoperability between the Fortinet FortiGate Network Security Platform and HPE Security Logger products, giving enterprise customers improved visibility, analysis capabilities and control of security threats.


Managing risk in todays digital business is getting increasingly complex. More sophisticated and frequent cyber attacks, coupled with the cost and complexity of regulatory constraints and the transformation of enterprise IT puts enormous pressure on the limited IT staff in mid-size and enterprise organizations. The need for simple to use, cost-effective security solutions is critical for these types of organizations, as their security infrastructure needs to be easy to manage, intelligent and seamlessly adaptable to the changing threat landscape impacted by factors such as BYOD and cloud applications.


Fortinet and HPE Deliver Seamless Protection Across Expanding Attack Surfaces

The integrated, scalable solutions from Fortinet and HPE Security provide enterprise customers with a broad view of the security threats on their network with deep analysis reporting. The expanded technology partnership includes:



  • New Solution Bundle Combines Next-Generation Enterprise Firewalls (NGFW) with the Leading Universal Log Management Platform: Bringing together the Fortinet FortiGate Enterprise Firewall and HPE Security Logger software into one bundle enables customers to benefit from the industrys highest-performing firewall and log management capabilities to help seamlessly collect, store, identify, analyze and mitigate complex threats. The bundle comes packaged with Fortinet enterprise solutions, including FortiCare 24x7 support, NGFW, AV, web filtering and anti-spam to provide customers with a cost-effective, seamless way to deal with todays evolving security threat landscape.



  • Integration Assures Enhanced Performance and Security for Joint Customers: Improved integration between Fortinet FortiGate Enterprise Firewalls and HPE SecurityLogger provides customers with seamless security management, to address vulnerabilities as soon as they are found. Businesses benefit from less disruption due to security issues and reduced risk of exposure to threats.



Cyber threats are continuously evolving and enterprises require multiple layers of security and forward-looking security solutions like internal segmentation that protect against these threats as they continue to grow in complexity and occurrence. Our expanding partnership with HPE Security further anticipates the needs of our joint customers, delivering increased network agility and lower OpEx costs, enabling enterprises to operate efficiently and securely.
- John Maddison, senior vice president of products and solutions at Fortinet


Mid-size businesses face the same types of sophisticated security threats as large enterprises, but do not always have the resources to adequately address these threats and protect their digital assets due to distributed IT environments and limited staff. To help our joint customers address these challenges, the new security bundle brings together the Fortinet Enterprise Firewall security products together with our leading universal HPE Security Logger platform to integrate information correlation, application analysis and network-level defense in one, seamless solution.
- Chandra Rangan, vice president marketing, HPE Security at Hewlett Packard Enterprise


The tremendous growth of mobile devices and cloud applications brought into mid-size enterprises has accelerated the requirement to add network security to even the smallest network, yet most of these organizations have very constrained IT budgets. Having an integrated offering from industry-leaders like HPE Security and Fortinet opens the door for us to address the unique IT challenges of these customers with an out-of-the-box, security solution that is proven, cost-effective and will help users gain full control of their network security.
- Russell Zientek, vice president, Cybersecurity Division at Arrow Distribution



Initial offerings of single SKU bundles, which include Fortinet FortiGate Enterprise Firewalls and HPE Security Logger, will be available to channel partners through Arrow in the U.S. and Canada in March 2016 with plans to roll out the bundle to other regions in second half of 2016.
