Fortinet launched its two new Web Application Firewalls (WAFs), FortiWeb 4000E and 3000E that are designed to prevent identity theft, financial fraud and denial of service through specialized, layered application threat protection.
FortiWeb appliances now offer advanced security services backed by FortiGuard Labs’ advanced threat intelligence, providing real-time threat protection at the application level. These new FortiWeb solutions are also integrated with Fortinet’s FortiSandbox and offer support for new enhancements in partnership with Acunetix’s advanced vulnerability scanning solutions. These new additions bolster Fortinet’s broad end-to-end cybersecurity platform that protects customer data at every possible entry point to the network.
The new FortiWeb 4000E delivers an unprecedented 20 Gbps WAF throughput and features built-in advanced anti-malware capabilities – a first for the WAF appliance market – while also integrating leading vulnerability scanning features from Acunetix. Fortinet’s FortiWeb appliances provide the performance, effectiveness and features that only Fortinet can deliver, surpassing all competitive solutions and resetting expectations for web application firewalls.
The FortiWeb series of WAFs are now fully integrated with Fortinet’s FortiSandbox and Advanced Threat Protection (ATP framework), ensuring that organizations can arm themselves with seamless, end-to-end protection from even the most sophisticated cyber threats. These enhancements deliver advanced, layered application threat protection for medium and large enterprises, application service providers and SaaS providers demanding the very best WAFs in the industry.
FortiWeb appliances can now receive real-time security updates from FortiGuard Labs. All of theses services are delivered in real-time and sourced from Fortinet’s global network of over 2 million security appliances. These sensors give FortiGuard Labs the widest visibility into new and existing threats and ensure that FortiWeb appliances are armed with the best possible application protection in the industry.
“Application Security is an increasingly important tool in the fight against Advanced Threats. However, with many of the Web Application Firewalls on the market today, customers have to trade off Performance for Security. This problem will only get worse as customers’ network reliance and Data Center bandwidth requirements continue to increase,” said John Maddison, vice president of marketing at Fortinet.
