New Delhi, India, January 16, 2014: Fortinet, a world player in high-performance network security, has unveiled 12 new products designed to connect and extend Fortinet’s integrated security platforms for retail, branch offices and distributed enterprises. Under the umbrella of “Connected UTM,” Fortinet’s new FortiGate unified threat management appliances, wireless access points, wireless WAN extender and Ethernet switches provide unparalleled policy and access control, threat protection and business continuity.

Rajesh Maurya, Country Manager, SAARC at Fortinet said, “Fortinet’s vision for retailers, branch offices and other massively distributed enterprise environments is Connected UTM. By integrating the flexibility of Fortinet’s UTM appliances, wireless access points, wireless WAN extender and switching products, businesses can simplify their complex networks, improve management and ensure seamless policy enforcement, aggressively pursue new business opportunities, and reduce costs while enjoying all the benefits of high-performance network security.”

Research Manager at IDC John Grady said, “As UTM appliances continue to integrate discreet security functions such as firewall, AV, IPS, Web content filtering, etc., we also see an emerging trend where UTM appliances are extending their security policy enforcement to include and integrate management functionality of WLAN, VoIP, IP-based cameras and more. Here, Fortinet’s Connected UTM offerings exemplify this trend and demonstrate innovation in driving new use and adoption cases for UTM in distributed enterprise environments.”

The foundation for Connected UTM begins with integration and management. Fortinet’s new FortiGate/FortiWiFi-30D-POE, FortiGate/FortiWiFi-60D-POE and FortiGate/FortiWiFi-90D-POE and FortiGate-280D-POE all integrate the full suite of UTM security features plus WiFi access point control, switching, authentication, endpoint management and policy control in a single easy-to-manage device. This consolidated approach allows businesses to enforce policies across a number of devise types and provide better security by having these devices plugged into and managed by a single FortiGate. The FG-280D-POE, with a total of 84 ports, was purpose-built for smaller networks (such as retail locations and healthcare facilities) that want to take advantage of the very high port density to eliminate devices in their infrastructure, such as switches.

The next level in the Connected UTM platform incorporates the ability to connect and manage multiple devices through integrated Power over Ethernet (PoE) ports. With this functionality, multiple devices, such as wireless access points ,Point of Sale (PoS) devices, network video cameras and video recorders, digital signage, IP telephony systems can be attached and managed from a FortiGate Connected UTM.


The FortiGate/FortiWiFi-30D-POE, FortiGate/FortiWiFi-60D-POE, FortiGate/FortiWiFi-90D-POE, FortiGate-280D-POE, FortiAP-221C, FortiAP-320C, FortiExtender-100B, FortiSwitch-224D-POE and FortiSwitch-108D-POE are available now.
