Fortinet launches two New FortiGate Security Appliances

Fortinet, provider of Unified Threat Management (UTM) solutions expanded its FortiGateT-3000 Series of multi-threat security appliances with the introduction of two new products - FortiGate-3810A and 3016B.

As per Fortinet, the new FortiGate systems are highly scalable and shatter security industry performance barriers - delivering up to 26 Gbps of firewall performance, an approximate 300 percent improvement over competitive offerings. The FortiGate-3810A and FortiGate-3016B appliances are suited for network core and data center deployments, and claims to address the stringent requirements of service providers seeking to build service offerings based on the FortiGate platform.

The FortiGate-3810A and FortiGate-3016B platforms combines Fortinet's existing FortiASICT-CP6 Content Processor and FortiASIC-NP2 Network Processor, which enables firewall throughput of up to 26 Gbps from a single device.

The new FortiGate systems accommodate the option of modular Advanced
Mezzanine Card (AMC) expansion, which provides hardware accelerated ten gigabit XFP interfaces as well as gigabit SFP interfaces and hard drive storage options. The AMC specification, also known as AdvancedMCT, is an open standard developed by the PICMG consortium to meet the needs of carrier class hardware.

"Next-generation networks and bandwidth-intensive applications are changing the way people and businesses use the Internet, but also bring about higher requirements for security and performance," said Richard Stiennon, Chief Marketing Officer, Fortinet. He added, "With the introduction of our new FortiGate systems, Fortinet is addressing these demands as well as continuing our leadership, innovation and differentiation in the security performance arena."

The FortiGate-3810A, FortiGate-3016B and related modules will be available in Q3 of 2007 through the company’s network of channel partners worldwide.
