There is a similar tool called FortiConverter

FortiConverter Service for Firewall Migration (fortinet.com)

 

If you have found this as a solution, please like and accept it to make it easily accessible for others.

Regards!

@luca1994 : Are you looking for migration tool or an assessment tool (i.e. health check)?

Hi @Dannу ,

an assessment tool

@luca1994 : FortiGate assessment tools available:

For 2024 I'm planning to add a FortiGate assessment feature to FortiGate WebUI Tools.

Sounds like you might be looking for the Security Rating service on the Fortigates.

Yes, Fortinet provides a tool called "FortiConverter" that is used to assess and assist in the migration of configurations from other vendors' firewalls to FortiGate firewalls. While it's not exactly the same as Palo Alto's Expedition tool, which is dedicated to migration and policy optimization for Palo Alto firewalls, FortiConverter serves a similar purpose for FortiGate.

Certainly! For Fortinet firewalls, you can use the FortiGate Assessment Tool. This tool helps evaluate the security and configuration of your FortiGate device, providing insights and recommendations for improvement. It's a valuable resource to enhance the effectiveness of your firewall. Best regards!

Hello JaylinBatz, 

 

Thank you for posting. The FortiGate Assessment Tool is not a tool that exists, and it is therefore not recommended by Fortinet.

 

Thanks,

so basically there is no product to do asessment on a Fortinet that is not paid for? So if I want to have a tool that produces me a report on the health and compliance of the firewall, which toll should I use?
