This example shows you how to configure a Fortinet Security Fabric that consists of four FortiGates and a FortiAnalyzer. One FortiGate acts as the network edge firewall and root FortiGate of the Security Fabric while the others function as Internal Segmentation Firewalls (ISFWs).
When the network is configured, a Security Fabric Audit is run to analyze the Security Fabric and recommend changes to help improve the configuration.
This sample network uses the following FortiGate aliases:
- External: the root FortiGate in the Security Fabric. This FortiGate is named External because it is the only FortiGate that directly connects to the Internet. This role is also known as the edge or gateway FortiGate.
- Accounting: an ISFW FortiGate that connects to External.
- Marketing: an ISFW FortiGate that connects to External.
- Sales: an ISFW FortiGate that connects to Marketing.
