Fortinet extends firewall line up
Fortinet announces new firewall and security blade
Fortinet has announced two new additions to its next-generation firewall line-up.
The company will release its FortiGate 5101C is a high-powered security blade, and the FortiGate 3240C multi-threat security appliance, which is intended to protect large volumes of IPv6 traffic, for enterprise, service provider and carriers.
The FortiGate 5101C combined with the FortiGate-5140B Chassis can secure over 100 Gbps of IPv6 traffic, to deliver what the company says is the world's fastest firewall for both IPv4 and Ipv6.
The FortiGate-3240C exerts granular control over more than 1,900 discrete applications and provides real-time protection against current and emerging Advanced Persistent Threats. In addition, the compact 2-RU format appliance delivers up to 40 Gbps of firewall throughput and tremendous scalability with 12 hardware-accelerated 10-Gigabit Ethernet (10-GbE) ports and 16 hardware-accelerated Gigabit Ethernet (GbE) ports, ports, the highest 10-GbE port density in its class.
Featuring the latest FortiASIC Content Processor and Security Processor chips, FortiGate-5101C security blades accelerate the performance of FortiGate-5000 Series ATCA-compliant chassis-based systems. A fully stocked FortiGate-5140B chassis using FortiGate-5101C security blades will provide up to 100 Gbps of IPv6 firewall throughput for next-generation networks, providing the fastest IPv6 protection on the market. This is critical to large enterprises and service providers migrating to the new standard protocol for the Internet.
"The introduction of our latest next-generation firewall products really changes the dynamics of how large enterprises, service providers and carriers apply high performance security in their networks," said Bashar Bashaireh, regional director, Fortinet Middle East. "The enormous throughput and scalability of these systems give organizations new freedom to develop and enforce a broad range of aggressive security policies that apply highly granular control over users, applications and devices without compromising network performance. As a result, we're helping merge security best practices with optimal operational and business processes."
