automated AWS transit vpc

AWS Transit VPC with VM-Series

This solution deploys a secured Transit VPC in AWS. This allows you to secure many spoke or subscribing VPCs using centralized VM-Series firewalls in the transit/hub VPC. The solution uses the VGW feature for specifying addressing such that 100s of spokes can be connected to a single hub with no address conflicts. This solution will secure traffic between VPCs, between a VPC and an on-prem/hybrid cloud resource, and outbound traffic. Securing outbound traffic in the Transit VPC allows you to allow safely enabled access to the Internet for tasks like software installs and patches without backhauling the traffic to an on prem-firewall for security.
