Cyber security firms Symantec and Fortinet have announced an expansive partnership that aims to deliver comprehensive security services across endpoint, network and cloud environments.
As part of the deal, Fortinet’s FortiGate Next-Generation Firewall (NGFW) will be integrated into Symantec’s cloud-delivered Web Security Service (WSS), resulting in “the most comprehensive set of cloud-delivered threat prevention capabilities in a single service on the market”, according to the companies.
Symantec’s endpoint protection will also be combined with the Fortinet Security Fabric platform to provide customers with real-time, actionable threat intelligence and automated response to tackle exploit-driven attacks and advanced malware.
Interoperability between Fortinet’s SD-WAN technology will also be certified to work with Symantec’s WSS through the latter’s Technology Integration Partner Program (TIPP), while the agreement will also see both firms engage in joint go-to-market activities.
