Fortinet FortiGate Auto Scaling Baseline on the AWS Cloud
This Quick Start deploys FortiGate Auto Scaling, a next-generation firewall (NGFW) from Fortinet, on the Amazon Web Services (AWS) Cloud in about 15 minutes.
FortiGate mid-range next-generation firewalls (NGFWs) provide high performance, multi-layered advanced security, and better visibility to help protect against cyber attacks while reducing complexity. FortiGate firewalls are purpose-built with security processors to enable a high level of threat protection and performance for Secure Sockets Layer (SSL)-encrypted traffic.
This Quick Start deploys an automatically scaled group of FortiGate instances, which provide intrusion protection, web filtering, and threat detection to help protect your services from cyber attacks. The Quick Start uses AWS CloudFormation templates to build the AWS infrastructure and to deploy the FortiGates to help protect your workloads.
The Quick Start offers two deployment options:
- Deploying FortiGate into a new virtual private cloud (VPC) on AWS
- Deploying FortiGate into an existing VPC on AWS
You can also use the AWS CloudFormation templates as a starting point for your own implementation.
For architectural details, step-by-step instructions, and customization options, see the deployment guide.
