FortiGate Hybrid Cloud (On Cloud)

Product by Fortinet

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-based FortiGate appliances.

This solution is pre-architected, which means it’s a click and deploy solution (on Azure or AWS) that’s automatically provisioned after being purchased on the Ingram Micro Cloud Marketplace.
