Fortinet : WAF Solutions Help Secure 5G in Ericsson Cloud Infrastructure

03/05/2021 | 12:09pm EST

Fortinet is committed to helping our customers protect their applications and APIs anywhere they choose to deploy them, including 5G networks. We're pleased to announce that the FortiWeb Web Application Firewall (WAF) as a Cloud Native Function (CNF) has been added to the list of certified applications in Ericsson Network Function Virtualization Infrastructure (NFVI). Combined with the previously certified Fortinet FortiGate next-generation firewall as a VNF, mobile network operators can now offer best-in-class network security from the perimeter to applications and application programming interfaces, running on Ericsson Cloud Infrastructure.

Securing 5G with FortiWeb WAF

As mobile providers deploy 5G new radio and 5G core, the transformation from the 4G to 5G Core is underpinned by a flexible, dynamic and programmable cloud  native platform. Integrating security to provide visibility and protection into this underlying cloud native platform is paramount to protect 5G core functions, applications and services. Alongside the FortiGate NGFW, FortiWeb API protection secures the Cloud Native Infrastructure and Kubernetes nodes, and enforces Security controls for north-south, and east-west traffic flows. 

Getting multiple VNFs and CNFs up and running can be a costly and time-consuming process for a mobile network operator. Applications vary greatly in function, deployment and life cycle requirements. Without the right tools to enable automation, the complexity of the infrastructure can defeat the purpose of network virtualization. Fortinet's combined solution, which has now passed the VNF/CNF certification processes, will help minimize the application onboarding challenges for Telcos and Service providers using Ericsson NFVI.

In order to address the validation challenges of our Telco and Service provider customers, we welcomed the opportunity to participate in the standardized testing framework developed by Ericsson to ensure the functionality and operational readiness of the FortiGate VNF and FortiWeb CNF throughout an application's lifecycle within the Ericsson Cloud Infrastructure offering.

Fortinet's Adaptive Cloud Security

Fortinet provides the broadest set of security offerings for any cloud, enabling organizations to secure any application on any cloud while maintaining a consistent posture. Making FortiWeb available as Cloud Native Function (CNF) to protect 5G core functions, applications and services is just one more example of how we're supporting our customers as they leverage new technologies to support their digital innovation initiatives.

Learn more about how Fortinet's adaptive cloud security solutions can help you protect all your applications, data, and workloads across all the clouds you rely on.
