Fortinet FG-100F firewall
The FortiGate 100F Next-Gen firewall is Fortinet’s new mid-range security appliance, and it is fast! For example, it boasts a Maximum Firewall Throughput of 20 Gbps, and a VPN Throughput of 11.5 Gbps. Actually, this latter figure is said by Fortinet to be 10 times faster than similar competition.
Of course, this firewall is also purpose-built for SD-WAN thanks to it’s new processor, the SoC4. This is a first-of-its-kind technology. It allows the 100F to combine the excellent firewall security and the top-notch SD-WAN you’ve come to expect from Fortinet.
What are FortiCare and FortiGuard support contracts, and how do I choose one of these?
Good question. When you purchase a Fortinet firewall, you have several options to go along with the firewall itself. These support contracts ensure that your firewall performs at its highest level, for as long as possible. The options on the right combine FortiCare and FortiGuard. Basically, without these support options in place, a firewall would be an expensive doorstop.
What are they, then?
FortiCare gives you global tech support on a per-product basis. Consequently, you’ll receive a timely response to any technical issues with your appliance, as well as complete visibility on ticket resolution progress. Also, it includes firmware upgrades and access to the support portal and associated technical resources. In addition, there’s reporting on technical incidents (via the web, chat, and telephone), and a hardware return option.
FortiGuard is the constantly self-updating security part of your firewall. In other words, it’s what makes it a firewall. Each option includes a range of security services designed to tackle the most advanced Internet threats at any given time. For example, it includes AntiVirus, Advanced Malware Protection, and Content Filtering. In addition, you get Sandboxing, AntiSpam, Email Security, Botnet Protection, and more.
