We have written about the FortiGate 100F Gen-After-Next-Gen firewall before. So why are we bringing it up again?
Fortinet is running an upgrade program that includes many pre-F series model firewalls. The promotion is individualized, so there’s no standardized discount pricing. You simply reach out to us, or call Corporate Armor at 877-449-0458. Then, we work you a great deal on a new FG-100F, or maybe even something else!
Who’s eligible to upgrade to the FG-100F?
Fortinet has provided a long list of firewalls eligible for the Trade-Up Program. In this case, the FG-80E, the FG-100E, or even the FG-200E are just a few models the FG-100F would be a viable replacement for. As an example, the FG-100F tops even the FG-200E in several categories. Although they are equal in overall Firewall Throughput at 20 Mbps, it has 15 Gbps of Firewall Throughput (Packets Per Second) compared to 13.5 Gbps for the FG-200E.
Fortinet has always prided themselves on their chip sets. Instead of outsourcing their chip production like a lot of other firewall companies do, Fortinet develops their own. And the heart of the FortiGate 100F is its’ new, ridiculously fast FortiSoC4 processor. This new processor helps it get its’ crazy throughput numbers. Easily enough for 200 users. It’s the same one used in all the F series. That power gives you management which is granular and detailed, but still clear and intuitive.
This kind of power-plus-usability is possible with technology like the FortiSoC4. As a matter of fact, it’s easy to deploy even for those who have limited IT staff.
Another thing this advanced new processor makes not only possible, but easy, is…
True SD-WAN firewall
SD-WAN firewalls are a Fortinet innovation. Basically, think of yourself being in a castle, behind a very strong wall. The FortiGate 100F Next-Gen firewall protects what’s inside your perimeter, and what’s on the freeways leading out of it, too.
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. Additionally, an SD-WAN firewall eliminates the need for a dedicated network connection.
SD-WAN gives extra secure, quick access to cloud-connected applications so important these days. For example, think of Dropbox, GitHub, Salesforce, and Office 365.
Security of the FG-100F
The FG-100F is capable of thoroughly evaluating thousands of traffic flows, ensuring compliance to any required policies put in place by utilizing continuous threat intelligence to catch and stop any suspicious attacks. Also, it wields high-performance UTM capabilities including anti-spam, firewall, IPS, Web filtering, DLP, VPN, application control, and antivirus. These features will deliver the best protection and ultra-low latency. On the networking side, the FG-100F incorporates a built-in routing feature to provide excellent performance with scalable encrypted IPSEC tunnels.
The FortiGate 100F can handle up to 64 FortiAP access points, or 32 in Tunnel Mode. It’s can also support up to 24 FortiSwitches.
