What does this AWS Solution do?
The solution relies on the FortiWeb WAF to protect web resources that need to be protected from common web attacks that affect the availability, security, or consume too many resources of a web application.
AWS Solution overview
Requests from the Internet are forwarded by Application Load Balancer or Network Load Balancer to the FortiWeb server located in a different available zone, and the FortiWeb server verifies the request against the predefined rules. If the request is verified to be secure, the request will continue to be forwarded to the business web server in the private network, otherwise Fortiweb will intercept and block the malicious request.
AWS Deployment with Fortiweb WAF
This solution includes public and private subnets. The FortiWeb will be deployed to the public subnet, and the FortiWeb-protected Web servers will be deployed to the private subnet.
The Load Balance at the front end of the Fortiweb server can be an AWS Application LoadBalance type or a Network Load Balance type.
FortiWeb Master node and FortiWeb Slave node will be created in different availability zones to form active-active-high Volume deployment mode. If the FortiWeb Master node fails, the FortiWeb Slave node is automatically lifted to the Master node.
