An increasing number of organizations are adopting a cloud-first policy, expedited via the use of cloud-native applications and services. However, ESG research has found that 88% of respondents believe that their cybersecurity programs need to evolve to secure their cloud-native applications and use of public cloud infrastructure. When it comes to the biggest cloud-native application security challenges, respondents cited maintaining security consistently across their data centers and public cloud environments (47%), increasing cost and complexity using multiple cybersecurity controls (40%), lacking understanding of the threat model for cloud-native applications and infrastructure (31%), and lacking visibility into public cloud infrastructure (30%).
This ESG Technical White Paper documents the evaluation of Fortinet on Google Cloud. We examined how Fortinet delivers integrated and consistent network, application, and cloud security for workloads deployed on Google Cloud.
