About Fortinet

Whether you need to deploy a High Performance Data Center Firewall, an Enterprise Next Generation Firewall or a smaller UTM device, there is a FortiGate physical or virtual appliance to fit your unique Network Security requirements.

Fortinet combine the FortiOS™ Operating System with custom FortiASIC™ processors and the latest-generation CPUs to provide advanced protection from sophisticated, highly targeted attacks, without becoming a network bottleneck.

Overview

FortiGate next-generation firewalls utilise purpose-built security processors and threat intelligence security services from FortiGuard labs to deliver top-rated protection and high performance including encrypted traffic. FortiGate reduces complexity with automated visibility into applications, users and network and provides security ratings to adopt security best practices.

As security architects consider how to provide comprehensive threat protection for their enterprises, including intrusion prevention, web filtering, anti-malware and application control, they face a major complexity hurdle managing these point products with no integration and lack of visibility. Gartner estimates that by 2019 80% of enterprise traffic will be encrypted and 50% of attacks targeting enterprise will be hidden in encrypted traffic.

FortiOS enables you to choose from a broad range of world-class security capabilities and configuration options, anything from pure a High-Performance Traditional Firewall to fully loaded next-generation firewall to a complete Unified Threat Management device

FortiGuard Lab’s full portfolio of Integrated Subscription based Security Services were designed from the ground up to maximize protection and optimize performance across the full range of Fortinet’s security platforms
