Alcide Integrates with Fortinet Security Fabric
April 04, 2019

Alcide announced a Fabric-Ready partnership with Fortinet. The joint hybrid cloud security offering aims to provide enhanced threat detection and mitigation for complex enterprise environments across public and private clouds, and support network and security teams with their daily task of ensuring a smooth, secure and frictionless business continuity.

The integrated hybrid cloud security solution was created on top of FortiOS – the Fortinet operating system that connects security devices together for effective and comprehensive security while ensuring full control over all security and networking capabilities. It also leverages FortiGuard Labs’ threat intelligence with Alcide’s powerful high-resolution reputation hit detection capabilities, such as crypto-mining, command & control and many others. Integrated together, Fortinet blocks threats at the network perimeter, while Alcide leverages its patent-pending microservices behavioral-based anomaly engine to detect east-west attacks across and within the different clusters. In addition, the Alcide platform, automatically and selectively, by using FortiOS REST APIs, programs FortiGate Next-Generation Firewalls to enforce a deeper security inspection for Amazon Elastic Container Service for Kubernetes (EKS), which results in an end-to-end security solution with a unified security policy enforcement across and with multiple Kubernetes clusters and hybrid-cloud deployments.

Customers of the integrated solution benefit from the following:

- Unified threat hunting and management

- High-resolution triage of anomalous microservices network activity

- Combining North-South threat intelligence reputation with deep East-West traffic inspection

- Continuous control and visibility

“Leveraging the joint solution, customers can benefit from security tailored for their container and serverless environments working in concert with trusted and true network security for their cloud networks” said Lior Cohen, Senior Director, Product Marketing, Cloud Security at Fortinet.
