FortiGate 60E Firewall
Meet the anchor of the industry’s most popular firewall series, the Fortinet FortiGate 60E. This firewall redefines what you can expect from an appliance of this price. It’s ready to go almost as soon as it’s plugged in and connected. And, the 60E is easily capable of handling the traffic of a small or even medium-sized office.
Under the hood
The FortiASIC architecture emphasizes speed even when threat processing. As a result, the 60E can handle 25,000 New Sessions per second, and registers Max Throughput of 3 Gbps. More importantly, NGFW Throughput is 250 Mbps, and it handles 100 Concurrent SSL VPN Sessions.
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. Without these support options in place, your firewall would basically be an expensive doorstop.
What are they, then?
Basically, FortiCare gives you global tech support on a per-product basis for your FG-60E. That means you’ll receive a timely response to any technical issues. Additionally, you’ll enjoy complete visibility on ticket resolution progress. It includes firmware upgrades, access to the support portal and other technical resources. Also, you get reporting on technical incidents via the web, chat, and telephone. There’s also a hardware return option.
However, FortiGuard is the self-updating security part of your FG-60E. In other words, it’s what makes it a firewall. Each option includes a range of services. These are designed to tackle the most advanced threats at any given time. Included are AntiVirus, Advanced Malware Protection, and Content Filtering. Additionally, there’s Sandboxing, AntiSpam, Email Security, Botnet Protection, and more.
