Single FortiGate-VM deployment

You can deploy FortiGate-VM NGFW for Azure as a virtual appliance in the Azure cloud (IaaS). This section shows you how to install and configure a single instance FortiGate-VM virtual appliance in Azure to provide a full NGFW/unified threat management (UTM) security solution in front of Azure IaaS resources.

This section covers the deployment of simple web servers, but this type of deployment can be used for any type of public resource protection with only slight modifications. With this architecture as a starting point, you can implement more advanced solutions, including multi-tiered solutions.

In this document, two subnets are created: Subnet1, which is used to connect the FortiGate-VM to the Azure virtual gateway, and Subnet2, which is used to connect the FortiGate-VM and the web server.
