Ansible and Fortinet

DevSecOps with Fortinet

To move faster and work more efficiently, organizations are deploying a variety of workloads across multi-cloud and hybrid environments.  However, organizations now need to manage the risk associated with business-critical data and services scattered across a distributed infrastructure.  All the while managing tools that differ significantly from one cloud platform to another.

Another complexity is the need to work within a shared security model with cloud providers, understanding  the responsibility of securing the cloud environment is shared between the cloud vendor and the customer.  In most cases, the cloud vendor is responsible for securing the platform itself, while the customer is responsible for securing their own apps and data. 

These complexities are potential sources of security gaps that organizations often struggle to comprehensively and consistently address.
