Telefonica, Fortinet launch virtual firewall service

Wednesday 12 June 2019 | 09:12 CET | News

Telefonica Business Solutions, the B2B unit of Spanish telecommunications operator Telefonica, has announced the launch of a virtual network firewall service based on Fortinet's next generation firewall in its B2B markets. The product, dubbed Virtual Firewall, allows customers to access an advanced security infrastructure in the Telefonica network offering end-to-end protection for their communications with a view to guaranteeing the privacy of communications between a customer’s private networks and their cloud providers. 

The service can be managed via a dedicated web portal or APIs and deployed in a virtualised environment, said Telefonica. The company added that it’s working on the creation of a Virtual Network Functions marketplace, a multi-vendor open ecosystem with functions that can be contracted and deployed in real time, both from the network and at the client's facilities, completely integrated within a SD-WAN service.
