FortiGate-VM – VMware NSX-T Data Center

This post was originally published on this site

By extending the FortiGate-VM native integration with the VMware NSX-T Data Center, Fortinet delivers advanced security for east-west and north-south traffic.

This deep integration provides customers with the confidence to extend their virtualized infrastructure across multi-hypervisor environments, private, and public clouds with a unified security layer.

This joint solution enables zero-trust security across hypervisors and clouds, mitigating the lateral movement of threats and providing advanced L7 security. It also enables policy-based firewall controls on each virtualized network interface card across the data center for east-west traffic inspection. 

FortiManager has a built-in NSX-T fabric connector to enable automation and provide dynamic object updates between the VMware NSX Manager and the FortiGate-VM security nodes.
