Fortinet expands security fabric

FortinetFortinet today introduced its third-generation FortiASIC SOC3 System-on-a-Chip architecture aimed at expanding its Security Fabric in a bid to further accelerate the speed of its new FortiGate 60E series security appliances for throughput with consolidated security and networking capabilities.

The SOC3 more than doubles the secure networking performance over the enterprise-class CPUs found in competing security solutions and propels the new FortiGate 60E series distributed enterprise firewalls to unprecedented levels of security and performance. FortiASIC SOC3 powers Fortinet’s new FortiGate 60E series distributed enterprise firewalls and sets a new bar as the most powerful firewall in its class, outperforming competitive solutions available on the market today.

The FortiGate 60E is the ideal entry point for distributed enterprises, branch offices and SMBs that require the advanced protection, networking performance, unified visibility and ease of management offered by Fortinet’s Security Fabric.

The new compact appliance offers advanced security and performance networking capabilities that unlock deployment options such as software defined WAN (SD-WAN), while the new FortiWiFi 60E – based on the FortiGate 60E – adds high-speed 802.11ac wireless access point capabilities to further reduce complexity and eliminate the need for additional wireless equipment.

All of these features are administered through an intuitive and unified management console that includes options for a cloud-based or hosted solution. These powerful management solutions arm distributed enterprises with the visibility, analytics and control offered by Fortinet’s Security Fabric.
