FortyCloud, an innovative provider of Network Security-as-a-Service for the cloud, today introduces Bring Your Own License (BYOL) and paid Amazon Machine Images. The AMIs enable launch of the FortyCloud service on the Amazon Cloud without leaving the AWS Marketplace. FortyCloud, an AWS Advanced Technology Partner, has enhanced its integration with the AWS Marketplace to allow all AWS users a simple and low-friction way to install the FortyCloud solution on-demand, on all AWS regions.
FortyCloud helps AWS users harden their cloud deployment and fulfill their security compliance requirements. The FortyCloud solution provides important IT security elements like Network Firewall, Identity and Access Management (IAM), encryption of data-in-transit and integration with Security Information and Event Management (SIEM) and Intrusion Detection System (IDS). In addition, for AWS, FortyCloud improves scalability by automating AWS security and networking configurations and introducing the use of policies.
FortyCloud's AMIs on the AWS Marketplace
The FortyCloud AMIs are self-contained virtual machine environments with the FortyCloud security software installed and pre-configured. These server images can be launched by AWS users into their cloud account using the AWS service console. The paid AMI supports automatic billing by AWS with per-hour granularity, ideally suited for a pay-per-use model. The BYOL option allows users more flexible and customized licensing possibilities, combined with the ease of use of the AMI model. Both options are available for free evaluation.
Amir Naftali, FortyCloud’s CTO, added: “We are happy to release the FortyCloud AMIs and make them available to the entire AWS user community. As an Advanced Technology Partner of AWS it is extremely important for us to ensure that the integration of our solution with the AWS cloud is as seamless as possible. This significant development builds on our existing features, such as Security Group and VPC routing automation, all of which are dedicated to making AWS usage more secure and scalable."
FortyCloud will be demonstrating the newly released AMIs as well as other new cutting-edge features at the AWS re:Invent conference in Las Vegas, October 6-9.
