Deployment Guide

Introduction

Fortinet Security Orchestration Platform™ (FortiSOAR™) is a scalable, awareness-driven, and encrypted security management intelligence platform. FortiSOAR is a centralized hub for your security operations and dramatically improves the effectiveness and efficiency of your security operations teams, by providing automation and customizable mechanisms for prevention, detection, and response to cybersecurity threats.

For information on deploying FortiSOAR, see the Deploying FortiSOAR chapter.
For information on deploying FortiSOAR using offline repositories, see the Deploying FortiSOAR using offline repositories chapter.
For information on deploying FortiSOAR on a docker platform, see the Deploying FortiSOAR on a docker platform chapter.

FortiSOAR is also available as a hosted option on FortiCloud. Additionally, it is also available as a Management Extension Application (MEA) on FortiAnalyzer and FortiManager.
For information of FortiSOAR on FortiCloud, see the FortiSOAR Cloud documentation.
For information of FortiSOAR MEA on FortiAnalyzer, see the FortiAnalyzer documentation; and for information of FortiSOAR MEA on FortiManager, see the FortiManager documentation.

Purpose

Use the deployment guide to deploy the FortiSOAR virtual appliance using VMware, the ESX/ESXi server and AWS.

Note

This document provides you with all the procedures for setting up FortiSOAR in your environment, including deploying FortiSOAR, the initial configuration for FortiSOAR, and troubleshooting of FortiSOAR.

Prerequisites

Before you deploy FortiSOAR, ensure you have done the following:

  • Setup a system with either Rocky Linux version 8.6 or RHEL version 8.6, if you are installing FortiSOAR using the installation script.
    OR,
    If you are using the OVA to deploy FortiSOAR, then provision to import the FortiSOAR virtual appliance into VMware or AWS.
  • Hostname and IP address if you want to change or assign them.
  • DNS server should be configured for the appliance if it is not picked up automatically from the network.
  • Company-specific SSL certificate, if you want to change the default certificate.
  • Optionally configure an SMTP server and an NTP server. The SMTP server is used for outgoing notifications once the system is configured. The NTP server is used to synchronize the machine time after deployment.
