By combining stateful inspection with a comprehensive suite of powerful security features, FortiGate Next Generation Firewall technology delivers complete content and network protection. This solution is available for deployment on Google Cloud Platform (GCP).
There are two ways to deploy FortiGate-VM on GCP: through the Google Cloud Marketplace or on Google Cloud Compute Engine.
- Google Cloud Marketplace: The FortiGate-VM listed on Google Cloud marketplace deployment currently supports one-arm mode (one network interface) only. See Deploying FortiGate-VM on Google Cloud Marketplace.
- Google Cloud Compute Engine: Deploy a FortiGate-VM instance on Google Cloud Compute Engine from the custom image without using the Google Cloud Platform marketplace. See Deploying FortiGate-VM on Google Cloud Compute Engine. You are encouraged to deploy FortiGate in this method when:
- FortiGate is required to be deployed inline across multiple networks and multiple network interfaces must be assigned to the instance.
- You do not want to use the Google marketplace launcher. For example, if your organization does not allow you to browse marketplace websites in its IT policy.
