Fortinet Intros FortiGate Next-Gen
The combination of business growth,
workloads migrating to multiple clouds and increasing cyber attacks
makes it difficult for organizations to maintain a robust security
architecture that effectively implements consistent security policy
across all network environments. Having flat networks with a single
enforcement point further compounds this problem by making it easier for
cybercriminals to get inside the network. Once inside, they become part
of the trusted zone, allowing them to quickly spread threats laterally.
It’s extremely hard to detect and contain these cybercriminals as they
move deeper into the network, resulting in cascading risks and
exfilteration of valuable data.
John Maddison, EVP of products and solutions at Fortinet said, “Segmentation is becoming as fundamental as patching vulnerable systems. Intent-based Segmentation aligns business goals with infrastructure changes and ultimately, dynamically separates infrastructure to protect users, data and systems. A fundamental element of Intent-based Segmentation is the high-performance NGFW. The new FortiGate 3400E and 3600E Series provide industry-leading threat protection and SSL inspection performance allowing customers to implement a holistic end-to-end architecture.”
Other benefits of FortiGate E-Series include:
•FortiGate 3600E Series deliver 30Gbps threat protection performance and 34Gbps SSL inspection performance. With high-density interfaces of 10G, 40G and 100G, it offers product consolidation and meets the needs of diverse deployments. Fortinet’s FortiGate Next-Generation Firewalls offer one of the industry’s highest marked SSL inspection performance and threat protection throughput.
•The FortiGate 3400E Series provide 23Gbps threat protection performance and 30Gbps SSL inspection performance. Combined with high-density interfaces of 10G, 40G, 100G, the FortiGate 3400E Series meet the needs of a variety of deployments by offering input/output flexibility, reducing complexity to achieve operational efficiency
•FortiGate 600E Series achieve 7Gbps threat portection and 8Gbps of SSL inspection performance with diverse 1G and 10G interfaces, allowing deployment flexibility.
•FortiGate 400E Series deliver 5Gbps threat protection and 4.8Gbps SSL inspection performance with high 1G port density to suit the needs of branch offices.
•The new FortiGate NGFWs, as part
of Fortinet’s Security Fabric, leverage Fabric Connectors to seamlessly
integrate with external security ecosystems, sharing threat intelligence
quickly for automated remediation. Fabric Connectors provide open APIs,
allowing the FortiGate NGFWs to integrate with third-party solutions and
Fabric-Ready Partners. This gives users advanced high-performance
security integration with industry leading solutions, such as VMWare NSX
and Cisco ACI.
