21 May 2021

Managed Service Provider Leverages Palo Alto Networks Technology to Deliver Advanced Threat Protection to Enterprise Networks

NetFortris, an international provider of managed cloud communications solutions and network services, announced today that it has expanded the security options for its SD-WAN by NetFortris solution with the addition of Managed Virtual Firewall Service, which is designed to secure organizations with virtualized and private network environments.

"In addition to our existing cloud-based firewall services, NetFortris now delivers a single-box solution for both SD-WAN and security," said Steven Horgan, Director of Product Management at NetFortris. "We deploy an edge device at the customer's premises and can fully manage both SD-WAN and security services from our cloud orchestration."

To deliver the new service, NetFortris leverages Palo Alto Networks VM-Series virtualized next-generation firewalls, which provide intrusion prevention, DNS Security, and anti-malware capabilities.

The VM-Series firewalls also integrate seamlessly with NetFortris' VMware NSX network virtualization platform to boost NSX security capabilities with dynamic traffic steering, forward error correction and tailored business policies.

Using Palo Alto's Panorama network security management system, NetFortris engineers can manage an organization's entire network security from end-to-end, including on-premises infrastructure, virtualized environments and public clouds.

SD-WAN by NetFortris Managed Virtual Firewall is an attractive option for organizations that need to:

  • Secure highly sensitive data
  • Meet regulatory and compliance requirements
  • Limit lateral threat movement
  • Detect and mitigate breaches quicker within trust zones
  • Prevent theft of customer information or intellectual property
