Aviatrix Distributed Cloud Firewall for Egress: Advanced NAT Gateway Replacement

Aviatrix Fully Qualified Domain Name (FQDN) is a security service specifically designed for workloads or applications in the public cloud. It filters Internet-bound egress traffic initiated from workloads in a VPC/VNet. This service is centrally managed by the Controller and executed by an Aviatrix Gateway instance in the VPC/VNet in the distributed architecture.. Aviatrix FQDN filters any TCP and UDP traffic including HTTP, HTTPS, and SFTP traffic. The filtering function allows only the destination host names (whitelist) specified in the list to pass and drop all other destinations. Each destination is specified as fully qualified domain name. For example, if you only allow Internet bound traffic to, you can list the domain name in the whitelist. For HTTP/HTTPS (TCP port 80/443), FQDN feature also supports wild cards, such as *. In this example, you can specify * to allow traffic to any domain names that end in “” Reference:
