Object and Policy Migration – FortiOS 5.2 Best Practices

Object and policy migration

Whilst we have suggested some level of manual review is included in the policy migration, it can be useful to be able to automatically migrate simply between another vendor’s format and the FortiGate format. The FortiGate policy format is text based and can easily be cut and pasted into from other vendor formats however, responding to the high customer demand to migrate away from other vendors, Fortinet have released an automatic configuration migration tool at http://convert.fortinet.com to simplify this process. Supporting Cisco ACLs, PIX, ASA, Check Point, and Juniper, the Converter can securely upload and convert the policy into the Fortinet format.
