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 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 you can use this deployment type 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.
The example in this document creates two subnets:
- Subnet1, used to connect the FortiGate-VM to the Azure virtual gateway
- Subnet2, used to connect the FortiGate-VM and the web server
