Virtualized Next-Generation Firewall

Organizations embracing private and public clouds need network security that complements traditional physical appliance form factors to gain visibility and maintain consistent security policy as workloads, users, and data migrate to more agile, elastic, and virtualized infrastructure.

FortiGate next-generation firewall virtual appliances provide proven security while realizing the flexibility and benefits of VM-based packaging: unmatched ROI, rapid provisioning, east-west traffic visibility, unlimited scalability, and consolidation. The virtualized form factor can be tightly orchestrated with hypervisors, cloud management, and SDN controllers through purpose-built integration or with FortiGate Connectors.

To provide consistently top-rated security, greater visibility, and unmatched performance, FortiGate virtual appliances give you the unique combination of the most advanced threat intelligence from FortiGuard Labs with a common FortiOS Operating System, simplifying management across physical, virtual, and cloud deployments.
