The FortiGate series of data-center firewalls address the core functions any enterprise-class firewall must deliver, including policy enforcement, application control services, and intrusion-prevention services. In addition, the FortiGate series provides granular policy control of users, devices, and applications, as well as SSL inspection and sandboxing, all at the network core.
At the highest end of the spectrum sits the FortiGate 7000 series, delivering a market-leading 100 Gbps NGFW throughput, 120 Gbps IPS throughput, and 80 Gbps threat protection throughput. For customers moving to IPv6, for example, this means no performance penalty for handling these transactions. Systems are capable of handling up to 320 million concurrent sessions and are flexible enough to be deployed as a next-generation firewall (NGFW) or as a data center firewall for the edge or internal segments. The system offers both the simplicity of an appliance combined with the modularity of a chassis so you can scale up as demands change. This flexibility extends to initial configuration as well. Systems come preconfigured for a variety of network needs and can be quickly deployed to handle the data-center edge and core, the enterprise edge, or for securing internal segments.
