About FortiGate for IBM Cloud

By combining stateful inspection with a comprehensive suite of powerful security features, FortiGate Next Generation Firewall (NGFW) technology delivers complete content and network protection. This solution is available for deployment on IBM Cloud.

In addition to advanced features such as an extreme threat database, vulnerability management, and flow-based inspection, features including application control, firewall, antivirus, IPS, web filter, and VPN work in concert to identify and mitigate the latest complex security threats.

Note

FortiGate-VM for IBM Cloud only supports standalone node deployment. FortiOS 6.4.2 and later versions support IBM Cloud deployment.

Support for active-passive high availability (HA) using two FortiGate nodes is planned for future releases.

Highlights of FortiGate for IBM Cloud include the following:

  • Delivers complete content and network protection by combining stateful inspection with a comprehensive suite of powerful security features.
  • IPS technology protects against current and emerging network-level threats. In addition to signature-based threat detection, IPS performs anomaly-based detection, which alerts users to any traffic that matches attack behavior profiles.
  • New Docker application control signatures protect your container environments from newly emerged security threats. See FortiGate-VM on a Docker Environment.
