Introduction

FortiTester™ appliances and VMs offer an enterprise-grade solution for Performance and Security testing.

FortiTester appliances provide 10/40/100G options for simulating network traffic, including RFC2544/3511, HTTP/HTTPS/HTTP 2 simulation, UDP (PPS / Payload), SSL/IPSEC VPN testing (for FortiGates), Q-in-Q traffic generation and PCAP/GTP replay. In addition to different kinds of traffic generation, FortiTester allows the customer to customize traffic templates with different protocols and application mixes. Both the FortiTester appliance and VM02-32 offer standalone and test center mode, in which FortiTester devices can be combined in either client or server mode to test the DUT (Device Under Test) for high performance gain. Available in most popular public cloud platforms, FortiTester can also be used to validate public cloud architecture and performance.

From a security standpoint, FortiTester can be used for Breach Attack Simulation (MITRE ATT&CK simulation), CVE based IPS, DDoS, Malware Strike pack, Fuzzing attacks, web attacks. With comprehensive API to automate, run and retrieve results, FortiTester allows users to natively integrate into Fortinet Security Fabric with FortiSIEM support, SYSLOG, SNMP traps, LDAP and RADIUS support. PCAP replay also provides an excellent tool for troubleshooting difficult network issues.
