Fortinet FG-400F firewall

Fortinet FG-400F Next-Gen firewall

The Fortinet FG400F Next-Gen firewall is designed for mid-sized to large enterprises, at the campus or branch level. It protects against threats with system-on-a-chip acceleration and secure SD-WAN in a simple, affordable, and easy to deploy solution. The FG-400F gives you a surprising level of speed and power for its’ price. And that’s one reason it will really stand out from its’ competitors. The other reason? The above-mentioned SD-WAN (software-defined wide area network). Purpose-built to handle networking duties and lock-down security duties at the same time.

What’s an SD-WAN firewall?

Well, the FG400F can do what it does because of its extraordinary new SD-WAN ASIC processor. It is called the SoC4, and this innovative, first-of-its-kind processor is specifically designed for SD-WAN networking. As a result, when you drop it under the hood of a purpose-built firewall like the FortiGate series, you end up with a beast of a firewall that’s really a dual appliance.

It’s a big deal because SD-WAN allows offices to connect over the internet. And, when you have SD-WAN built into your firewall, you can do so quite securely. Fortinet is no longer the only firewall vendor with this ability, but they were the first, and are arguably still the best at it.
