Fortinet's FortiGate-VM is a next generation firewall virtual appliance for VMware environments that provides purpose-built integration for VMware's Software-Defined Data Center (SDDC) and interoperability with NSX-T through service insertion as a third-party edge firewall. FortiGate-VM provides protection of north/south traffic flow inside the VMware NSX-T environment.
FortiGate-VM 6.0.4 is certified for use with NSX-T 2.3.
NSX-T fully supports ESXi and KVM as hypervisor platforms. An edge firewall is supported on ESXi only (not KVM) with NSX-T 2.3.
