No security solution is an island, a stand-alone bastion or silver bullet whose purchase will ensure an organization’s IT ecosystem remains secure forever. There are no two identical system architectures in the world, and no simple 10-step solution to securing all of them that can be expressed in a single page.
It’s how security vendors talk to each other and work together that makes the difference. Fortinet just announced their Fabric-Ready Partnership. Fortinet makes one of the safest next-gen or internal segmentation firewalls on the market, according to external testing. But that’s not enough – we all know that protection is reliant upon information; information about what the bad guys are doing, and information about what the walls are defending.
Internally there might be legacy systems in production that cannot be upgraded. There could be third-party applications where an organization has no access to source code. There could simply be a lack of skills internally to address all of the problems that the organization’s web applications may have.
That’s where WhiteHat comes into the weave. Fortinet’s FortiWeb product imports the results from Sentinel’s dynamic scanning and creates virtual patching options for the administrator, so they can decide where to block or allow traffic based on timely information of the current vulnerabilities in their web services.
WhiteHat is proud of all of our Technology Partnerships. We believe that security vendors have a duty to work together to secure digital business.
“The number of applications being used to access critical business data is increasing at a staggering rate, making the risk for application vulnerabilities on enterprise networks very high. As a Fortinet Fabric-Ready partner, we can now offer an integrated solution that scans applications for vulnerabilities with high accuracy, while also enabling dynamic virtual patching of critical web applications. This reduces the risk of exposure especially for hard-to-patch and dynamically changing applications that require extremely robust uptime.” - Michael Goldgof, vice president of Marketing, WhiteHat Security
