Intent-based segmentation enabled with New High-Performance Next-Generation Firewalls

22

Fortinet, a global leader in broad, integrated and automated cybersecurity solutions, announced its new high-performance FortiGate Next-Generation Firewalls (NGFWs), comprised of FortiGate 3600E, FortiGate 3400E, FortiGate 600E and FortiGate 400E Series, enabling organizations to implement Intent-based Segmentation into their security architecture.

  • Intent-based Segmentation allows organizations to achieve granular access control, continuous trust assessment, end-to-end visibility and automated threat protection.
  • In addition to delivering Intent-based Segmentation, FortiGate 3600E offers 30Gbps threat protection and 34Gbps SSL inspection performance. FortiGate 3400E offers 23Gbps threat protection and 30Gbps SSL inspection performance.
  • FortiGate has a longstanding trajectory of earning NSS Labs Recommended ratings in the Next-Generation Firewalls group tests given its high SSL inspection performance with minimal performance degradation as one of the reasons.

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.

“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,” said Rajesh Maurya, Regional Vice President, India & SAARC, Fortinet.

Powered by customized Security Processor Units (SPUs), the new FortiGate NGFWs provide full visibility and advanced threat protection without the fear of performance degradation. 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.

“With over 60,000 students and staff in 100 locations, Halton District School Board has a vast network to protect as well as personal data to keep secure. We leverage Fortinet’s FortiGate Next-Generation Firewalls not only to mitigate risks, but also to gain greater end-to-end visibility into our security ecosystem. With Fortinet, we know we’re receiving the highest performing security products at the best price point in the industry,” said Fernando (Fern) Pinho, Information Technology Manager, Network & Corporate Operations at Halton District School Board
