This Quick Start automatically deploys Fortinet FortiGate Auto Scaling Baseline on the Amazon Web Services (AWS) Cloud in about 15 minutes. The Quick Start is intended to be a baseline for IT infrastructure architects, administrators, and DevOps professionals who plan to implement or extend Fortinet’s Security Fabric workloads on the AWS Cloud.

FortiGate Next-Generation Firewall technology delivers content and network protection by combining stateful inspection with a comprehensive suite of powerful security features. Application control, antivirus, intrusion prevention system (IPS) technology, web filtering, and virtual private network (VPN) along with advanced features such as an extreme threat database, vulnerability management, and flow-based inspection work in concert to identify and mitigate complex security threats. The security-hardened FortiOS operating system is purpose-built for inspection and identification of malware and supports direct Single Root I/O Virtualization (SR-IOV) for higher and more consistent performance.
