Fortinet launches next-gen firewall
The FortiGate-3810D will be available by the end of the year.

Network security specialist, Fortinet, has announced the release of the FortiGate-3810D, the "first and only firewall appliance with 100GbE interfaces and 300+ Gbps throughput", which is aimed at the data centre segment.

The appliance uses Fortinet's FortiASIC Network Processor 6 technology and is designed to save space and power. The firewall includes features such as Virtual Domain and Transparent Mode, allowing networks to be segmented without major modifications.

"The data centre spent 10 years moving from 1G to 10G; the move to 100G will happen much faster," said John Maddison, vice president of marketing products for Fortinet.

"Firewalls have traditionally been bottlenecks, slowing down the move to larger, next-generation data centres. The FortiGate-3810D allows customers to build 100G data centres without worrying about high-speed connectivity or throughput of the core firewall."

The FortiGate-3810D will be available by the end of the year.
