Cloud-native. Cloud-scale.

AWS WAF delivers the basic security and features you need to be PCI compliant and give your organization the foundational protection it needs. But depending on the size and complexity of your business, this may not be enough.

Fortinet Managed Rules and FortiWeb Cloud add advanced capabilities that go way beyond the basics to offer more customization, control, and peace of mind.
