Fortinet launches FortiGate-300D and FortiGate-500D Next-Gen Firewall platforms

10th September 2014 | By Mouseworld Now Correspondent |

FortiGate-500D ApartBangalore, India, September 10, 2014 – Fortinet (NASDAQ: FTNT) – a leading player in high-performance network security, has unveiled two new next-generation firewall platforms – the FortiGate-300D and FortiGate-500D – that provide mid-enterprises with five times next-generation performance, enabling increased protection against today’s advanced threats. These new models are ideal for midsize enterprises, branch offices, as well as state and local government, education, healthcare and other market segments that need strong security and easy-to-manage functionality at affordable price points.

“Traditional firewalls have not kept pace with the changing threat landscape, forcing organizations to look to next-generation firewalls for a deeper level of inspection,” said Rajesh Maurya, Country Manager, India & SAARC at Fortinet. “With Fortinet’s high performance appliances, any natural firewall refresh or web filtering renewal presents the opportunity to add new security functions yet consolidate security devices – a ‘win win’ scenario for customers.”

The FortiGate 300D and 500D offer industry-best price per protected next-gen gigabit throughput, and all the top rated enterprise capabilities powered by the FortiOS Network Security Platform. These enterprise capabilities include NSS Labs Recommended Next Generation Firewall capability ($6 protected NG Gig); rated IPS, Antimalware and Antiphishing; flexible web filtering of more than 100 million sites across 75 content categories; actionable visibility and rich reporting; and optional NSS Labs Recommended Breach Detection System.

As security threats evolve, network security professionals expect NGFWs to provide both security and efficiencies beyond what they can expect from traditional firewalls, according to a Forrester Consulting study. Today, customers want gateways that fight advanced threats, like zero-day malware and that respond to new cybercriminal tactics, such as encrypting payloads or stolen data inside of an SSL tunnel. Therefore, advanced threat prevention, sandboxing and more are becoming the norm in this new generation of NGFWs, with an emphasis on security effectiveness and performance above all else.

Both the FortiGate-300D and FortiGate-500D sport the latest FortiASIC NP6 processors, which operates in-line with firewall and VPN functions to deliver several key benefits. These include wire-speed firewall performance at the network edge for any size packets, including IPv4 and IPv6; VPN control, generic routing encapsulation (GRE) acceleration, anomaly-based intrusion prevention, and traffic shaping and priority queuing. All of this allows for high-performance throughput, even when additional security features, such as web/URL filtering, IPS and application control, are active.

Availability
These new FortiGate platforms, along with the FortiGate 200D-POE and 240D-POE, will be available in Asia Pacific starting September from authorized Fortinet channel partners.
