FortiGate virtual appliances allow you to mitigate blind spots by implementing critical security controls within your virtual infrastructure. They also allow you to rapidly provision security infrastructure whenever and wherever it is needed. Moreover, FortiGate virtual appliances feature all of the security and networking services common to traditional hardware-dbased FortiGate appliances. With the addition of virtual appliances from Fortinet, you can deploy a mix of hardware and virtual appliances, operating together and managed from a common centralized management platform.
The delivery of both physical and virtual planes security appliances it offers on one side, and the unmatched performance and security capabilities it provides on the other side, allow the growth and evolution of the consolidating Data Center with no service degradation or bottlenecks, no compromise on security, and with an unmatched ROI — fulfilling the outcomes of a robust softwaredefined security framework.

FortiGate Virtual Appliance Benefits:
FortiGate virtual appliances offer protection from a broad array of threats, with support for all of the security and networking services offered by the FortiOS operating system. In addition, the appliances offer:
Increased visibility within virtualized infrastructure
Rapid deployment capability
Ability to manage virtual appliances and physical appliances from a single pane of glass management platform
Simple licensing with no per-user fees
Support for multiple virtualization and Cloud platforms
Full support for FortiHypervisor deployments enabling line-speed security in vCPE requirement
Wide array of licensing choices to fit any infrastructure requirement
VDOM-enabled models for multi-tenant environments
Visibility into all vSphere virtual network traffic
Automated deployment and provisioning of FortiGate-VMX security nodes to new ESXi hosts
Instant-on real-time protection of new VM workloads
Session-state retained across live migration events (vMotion)
Support for multi-tenant environments
Full Next Generation security functionality solution in one platform
Unlike traditional deployments where the security virtual appliance is required to be in the flow of traffic to enforce policy, FortiGate-VMX can see traffic as it traverses between the virtual switch port and the virtual NIC (vNIC) of the workload VM itself.
Automated Deployment and Provisioning
FortiGate-VMX Service Manage talks directly with VMware’s NSX Manager to communicate information about and register the Fortinet security service. The VMware environment then automates the deployment of FortiGate-VMX Security Nodes to each VMware ESXi host in the designated cluster. Licensing and security policy is also automated between the FortiGate-VMX Service Manager and the FortiGate-VMX Security Nodes.
FortiGate-VMX security policy is based on dynamic NSX Security Groups and their associated objects. Any additions or other changes to these Security Groups in the NSX Manager will be automatically associated with the proper FortiGate-VMX security policy without requiring any manual changes in the FortiGate-VMX Service Manager. Policies are enforced independent of broadcast domain or port connection. Policy will also follow the workload VM from host to host during live migration (vMotion) events.
Through integration with VMware NSX APIs and NSX Service Composer, custom redirection security policies enable application traffic flow to/from specific VM workload within the designated ESXi cluster(s) to be secured by the FortiGate-VMX security service. No manual configuration of network flows are required.
With policies based on NSX dynamic Security Groups, new VM workloads are automatically associated to their proper security policy in real-time upon creation. No more lag-time between creation and enforcement or mistakes commonly associated with communication between data center administrators and security administrators.
Because FortiGate-VMX is a security service within the VMware environment, any new hosts added to the secure ESXi cluster will immediately fall under the same security policy. FortiGate-VMX security nodes will automatically deploy to those new ESXi hosts without any manual intervention.
Using the advanced FortiOS™ operating system, FortiGate appliances effectively neutralize a wide range of security threats facing your software defined datacenter (SDDC). Whether deployed at the edge as a front-line defense (FortiGate hardware appliances), within the virtual infrastructure for inter-zone security and VPN termination at the application (FortiGate-VM) or utilized for inter-VM and advanced hypervisor-based security (FortiGate-VMX), FortiGate appliances protect your infrastructure with some of the most effective security available today.
All Inter-VM traffic in Bravo Zones are subject to full UTM scan through L2 VDOM. Inter-Zone traffic subject to full Next Gen Firewall and UTM scan by L3 VDOM. Alpha Zone VMs can all talk to each other freely.
Choice of Form Factor
Few organizations use 100% hardware or 100% virtual IT infrastructure today, creating a need for both hardware appliances and virtual appliances in your security strategy. Fortinet allows you to build the security solution that’s right for your environment with hardware and virtual appliances to secure the core, the edge and increase visibility and control over communications within the virtualized infrastructure. FortiManager virtual or physical appliances allow you to easily manage and update your Fortinet security assets — hardware, virtual or both — from a single pane of glass.
Using the advanced FortiOS operating system, FortiGate appliances effectively neutralize a wide range of security threats facing your virtualized environment. Whether deployed at the edge as a front-line defense, or deep within the virtual infrastructure for inter-zone security, FortiGate appliances protect your infrastructure with some of the most effective security available today by enabling security features you need.
