FortiGate Firewall for High Availability (HA)
FortiGate High Availability (HA) template is designed to ensure superior services, systems and applications uptime with minimal disruption. With redundancy built in within the solution, it increases reliability and system availability per service-level agreement (SLA) or a contractual obligation. To handle routine interruptions and unplanned failures in Azure, the solution template helps incorporate and initiate FortiGate firewall appliances in Azure for the active-standby failover design when it's needed.
- FortiGate virtual appliances offer protection from a broad array of threats, with support for all of the security and networking services offered by the FortiOS operating system.
- IPS technology protects against network-level threats. In addition to signature-based threat detection, IPS performs anomaly-based detection, which alerts users to any traffic that matches attack behavior profiles.
