Public Cloud Segmentation II - NGFW Integration

37 Launches
Solution Overview
As organizations outsource and look to abstract infrastructure management to focus on what they do best, public cloud providers are booming. As these organizations migrate to public cloud, Enterprise Segmentation is just as important to securing public cloud environments as it is on-prem.  This lab uses an Amazon Web Services (AWS) environment to illustrate integration with a 3rd party OEM Next Generation Firewall.  AWS is the world’s most comprehensive and broadly adopted cloud platform, offering over 165 fully featured services from data centers globally. Millions of customers —including the fastest-growing startups, largest enterprises, and leading government agencies—trust AWS to power their infrastructure, become more agile, and lower costs.  The Next Gen Firewall implemented is from Fortinet, a leading firewall OEM in and outside of the service provider space. 

Goals & Objectives

This on-demand lab will walk a user through one method of incorporating third-party appliances into their cloud network design to enhance security and meet governance and compliance requirements. 

Once complete, the user should have a better understanding of how to do segmentation in the cloud and give them ideas and tools to further innovate and customize for their use cases and environments.

In summary, in this lab you will:
  • Learn how to integrate a party 3rd NGFW (Fortinet) into AWS
  • See how this participates in app segmentation
