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. As well as different traffic generation, FortiTester allows customer to customise traffic mix templates with different protocol and application mix. Both FortiTester appliance and VM02-32 offers standalone and test center mode, where FortiTester can be combined as either clients or servers mode to test DUT (Device Under Test) for high performance gain. Available in most popular public cloud platforms, FortiTester can also be used as validating public cloud architecture and performance.

From security stand point 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 result, 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.
