SecurityBridge and Fortinet Build Partnership to Provide Enhanced SAP Security
Ingolstadt Germany (PRUnderground) September 15th, 2021
SecurityBridge, provider of the world’s first and only seamlessly integrated SAP cyber-security platform announced that the company has forged a partnership with Fortinet, a global leader in broad, integrated, and automated cybersecurity solutions, to deliver an industry-leading integrated solution to address the security challenges posed by vulnerabilities within the SAP landscape.
The partnership is a strategic milestone to further the goal of bridging the gap between SAP and network security. Fortinet FortiGate Next-Generation Firewalls (NGFWs) are an integral part of the Fortinet Security Fabric and enable security-driven networking. FortiGate NGFWs deliver high-performance, low-latency SAP security through the deep packet and content inspection specific to SAP services. The SecurityBridge and FortiGate integrated solution for SAP enables an unprecedented, advanced level of security insight, speed, and protection.
Organizations are looking for easy to maintain, integrated, and scalable architectures that provide a high level of protection against internal and external attackers. A combination of perimeter security and critical application security is a natural step in evolution. SAP systems process 77% of the worldwide transaction revenue and form the digital backbone of an organization. IT security relies on a multi-layered security structure like “onion layers”. Unfortunately, the defense lines often exist in isolation and are not interconnected. SecurityBridge and Fortinet are partnering to address this very issue and to introduce a paradigm shift.
Neil Prasad, Head of Global Technology Alliances, Fortinet: “As the digital attack surface rapidly expands, customers are seeking to achieve integrated security that can keep pace with the growing attack surface. Fortinet’s technology alliance partners integrate with the Fortinet Security Fabric to help customers gain unparalleled security. We are pleased to have SecurityBridge as a Fortinet Fabric-Ready Technology Alliance Partner, and welcome SecurityBridge into Fortinet’s Open Fabric Ecosystem. Customers can leverage the integration to confidently secure their deployments, including mission-critical SAP data and applications.”
We will be announcing more details in the coming days. Follow our media to ensure you don’t miss out on radical advances that will help you secure your critical SAP systems.
Christoph Nagy, CEO, SecurityBridge: “Fortinet is a global leader in cybersecurity, and today’s announcement bolsters our commitment to advancing our partner ecosystem with the most advanced providers in the industry.”
SecurityBridge delivers advanced security powered by anomaly detection so that even the most sophisticated threats can be detected in real-time. SecurityBridge provides an open architecture so that integration with other technologies can be seamless and elegant. Incorporating SAP within the security ecosystem is a vital component of providing a holistic and comprehensive strategy.
