NTT Launches Software Security Appliance Service In Collaboration With Fortinet

NTT Communications Corp., a business unit of telecom firm Nippon Telegraph & Telephone Corp. (NTT), Friday announced the immediate launch of a software security appliance service, offered in collaboration with Fortinet, Inc. (FTNT).

According to the firm, this service can be deployed in a customer's private cloud, and in the near future via NTT Com's WideAngle security service for managed security.

The service enables the on-demand use of basic security functions, such as cloud intrusion prevention system or IPS and filtering, for the unprecedentedly fast, flexible and low-cost implementation of security measures.

With this, NTT Com will be world's first telecom service provider to launch a one-stop service for managed security service using Fortinet's software security appliance. It is being offered as a new option in NTT Com's Enterprise Cloud service for mission critical systems.

NTT Com will launch a software security appliance for web application firewalls after the 2015 first quarter and additional functions after the 2015 second quarter.
