Cybersecuriyt firm said that the FortiGate-VM is extending its native support of NSX-T Data Center to provide advanced security for East-West traffic. With this, the company will unify security to extend virtualized infrastructure across multi-hypervisor environments, public and private clouds.

“VMware and Fortinet are enabling our mutual customers with end-to-end security by inserting next-generation firewall capabilities seamlessly into -T Data Center environments. FortiGate-VM’s interoperability with NSX-T Data Center will enable our mutual customers to deliver even deeper security across the Virtual Cloud Network,” said Nikhil Kelshikar, VP of NSX product management, VMware.

The cybersecurity firm claimed that its new offering will allow organisations to reduce the number of point products they use to protect their infrastructure while providing consistent security across various environments. Powered by FortiGate-VM technology, Fortinet’s ability to monitor NSX-T East-West security will provide consistent security across any environment as well as give comprehensive visibility inside the network with single-pane-of-glass management, said the company.

“We look forward to tightening our collaboration with Fabric-Ready Partner VMware to make the cloud on-ramp that mutual customers are undertaking as easy as possible. By combining FortiGate-VM functionality with VMware’s NSX-T Data Center, organizations can seamlessly integrate security functionality across multi-hypervisor environments, public clouds and multiple clouds,” said Rajesh Maurya, Regional Vice President, India & SAARC at Fortinet.

The company infomred that as a Fabric-Ready Partner, VMware is enabling Fortinet to natively support its products and solutions. Fortinet’s Fabric-Ready Partner ecosystem’s open APIs approach enables security to be automated and synchronized across DevOps environments. The Fabric Connectors allow deep integration into partner technologies and streamline application lifecycle management while also reducing operational overhead.

The company asserted that its FortiGate-VM for NSX-T virtual cloud network enables zero trust security across hypervisors and clouds. This allows organizations to mitigate lateral movement of sophisticated threats and vulnerabilities within virtualized data centers and across multiple clouds, providing advanced security throughout all environments.
