As organizations migrate their production infrastructure to the cloud, many leverage AWS’s AutoScaling capabilities to automatically scale their cloud compute resources according to conditions they define. This provides an excellent means of optimizing cloud costs,
detecting faulty instances, identifying unhealthy applications and automating replacement. As cloud workloads are scaled-out, the concerns of secured data protection persist and require a security-scaling automation capability aligned to flexing compute resources.
To address this situation, Fortinet has developed an AutoScaling CloudFormation template which adds enterprise firewall instances automatically based on user-defined criteria while using AWS integrated scripts and templates to maintain a familiar UI and initiate security elasticity for optimal network utilization.
