Big or small start-up companies relies on high-end, advanced technologies as nearly as one of the essential in upping their business. But what concerns them the most in the aspect of leaving technology to their own efficient devices is security. Security, after all, is among the foundation of building and growing companies for both of themselves and for their clients or customers.
For this in particular, we have Yedpay; a growing company established in 2014, Hongkong, with the objective of constructing a unified system to benefit small and medium-sized businesses (SMEs) through providing secure platform for e-commerce payments. With cloud on the constant rise, Yedpay is upping their journey with the migration of cloud.
LogicMonitor’s survey predicted that about 80% of enterprise workloads will be in the cloud by 2020, and 63% of IT professionals see security as the most significant concern about this trend. That’s when Fortinet comes in.
Fortinet offers a broad, integrated and automated cyber-security solutions. It provides various solutions to security network challenges. With the help of Fortinet, Yedpay was able to protect its current operations, stay ahead of cyber attacks and confidently expand service offerings to grow their business via Fortinet Security Fabric.
“We deployed Fortinet Network Firewalls five years ago to protect our on-premise network infrastructure. Fortinet was the clear choice to help us move our workloads to a public cloud environment with their Fortinet Security Fabric offerings,” said Alva Wong, Yedpay’s co-founder and chief information security officer. “Every component of the Fortinet Security Fabric is fully integrated into the entire network and every part of the security architecture is visible via a single console that is user-friendly and easy to operate. With Fortinet, a secure cloud migration that would normally take a year took us only a month.”
The Fortinet Security Fabric offerings deployed by Yedpay includes:
- The FortiGate Next-Generation Firewall, with vendor-agnostic interoperability and advanced threat prevention built-in to provide outstanding network visibility.
- The FortiWeb Application FireWall (WAF) provides Yedpay with AI-based behavioral scanning for threat detection and protection from the OWASP top ten most critical web app security risks; includes cross-site scripting (XSS) and SQL injection attacks.
- The FortiSIEM provides Yedpay cross-correlation of Security Operations Centre and Network Operations Center (SOC-NOC) analytics and automated workflows. It also provides single-pane-of-glass management to speed up and improve threat response, free time up for critical business operations and prevent security breach.
In short, Fortinet enabled Yedpay to accelerate its cloud migration journey by easing their management and operational overheads without the risking security nor compromising network performance.
“Fortinet provides us with an end-to-end security solution and a single point of contact with deep multi-vendor integration. This not only gave us peace of mind during the migration, but continues to give us an easy way to secure our network architecture that is also highly scalable, incredibly powerful and cost-effective,” Mr. Wong added.
