Alibaba Cloud and Fortinet have announced the expansion of the Fortinet Security Fabric offerings and new automation capabilities for Alibaba Cloud to provide streamlined and consistent security for organizations with hybrid cloud infrastructures. The combination of Alibaba Cloud and the Fortinet Security Fabric provide organizations with the ability to extend security visibility and control from the data center to the cloud and the ability to ensure that organizations employ consistent security policies no matter where their applications are deployed.
By implementing the Fortinet Security Fabric on Alibaba Cloud, customers can apply consistent security policies throughout their hybrid infrastructures and can realize multi-layer security protection and operational benefits for running applications on Alibaba Cloud.

With Fortinet and Alibaba Cloud’s integrated security solution, we are able to stay agile to our customer needs while protecting sensitive information in both a cloud and on-premise setup. This is very key to our commitments in proving quality of life services to our clients and consumers ”
