Fortinet FG 80F Next-Generation firewall

Fortinet FG 80F Next-Gen firewall

The Fortinet FG 80F is a powerful networking-security choice for branch offices and mid-sized businesses. Compact and fanless, it’s easy to forget the FG 80F is there. That is, except for the peace-of-mind you’ll enjoy as it safeguards your network. Like all FortiGates, it sports the new SOC4 processor. So, you’re getting the same secure SD-WAN performance as Enterprise firewalls. And all of this comes in an affordable and easy to deploy solution.

UPDATE: The FortiGate 80F is now being offered in a PoE version. Why is this importnt? Because , Power over Ethernet delivers electrical power to PoE-enabled devices using your CATx (CAT-5, CAT-6, etc.) network cables. Since you don’t need to run electrical wiring, PoE saves money in materials and install time. It’s also flexible, especially for remote applications, since it doesn’t require a nearby electrical outlet.

What are FortiCare and FortiGuard, and how do I choose one of these for my Fortinet FG 80F?

Good question. When you purchase a FortiGate 80F, you have several options to go along with the firewall itself. In effect, 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, a 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 Fortinet FG 80F. You’ll receive a timely response to any technical issues your device may have. In addition, you’ll have complete visibility on ticket resolution progress. It includes things like firmware upgrades, access to the support portal and associated technical resources. You get reporting on technical incidents via the web, chat, and telephone. There’s also a hardware return option.
