Fortinet FG-400F Next-Gen firewall – The Cadillac of your server rack!

The powerful Fortinet FG-400F Next-Gen firewall is not only the state-of-the-art, lightning-fast apex predator of the cyber threatscape. It’s also in stock RIGHT NOW! And it’s bad news to any malware, exploits and known/unknown threats foolish enough to show their ugly little faces around it.

The Fortinet FG-400F 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. Additionally, a SD-WAN firewall eliminates the need for a dedicated network connection. Fortinet is no longer the only firewall vendor with this ability, but they were the first, and are arguably still the best at it.

Why do you say that?

Because, for all its blistering speed and ability, this big-league firewall is refreshingly easy to get up and going. It may be a beast, but only to the bad guys. The SoC4 is the same chip used in all the F series firewalls, including the desktop models. That power provides the luxury of very simplified interfaces which are granular and detailed, but still clear and intuitive.

And, all SD-WAN FortiGates are managed in the same Management Center, by the same Fortinet Security Fabric. From it you can manage your entire network, with all devices, in one window. Terms like “zero-touch deployment,” and “do-it-yourself,” mean it’s super-easy to get up and running and stay that way. The Fortinet FG-400F is designed to get up and purring like a kitten with minimal investment of time and expertise.

How’s the Performance?

The numbers are impressive. Firewall Throughput clocks in at 80 Gbps, NGFW Throughput is 8 Gbps, Threat Protection is 6 Gbps, and IPS Throughput is 10 Gbps. VPN Throughput is 55 Gbps, and it can run 8 million concurrent sessions, and 500,000 new sessions/second.

What About Other Features?

The Fortinet FG-400F 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 400F incorporates a built-in routing feature to provide excellent performance with scalable encrypted IPSEC tunnels.

The Fortinet FG-400F has 4× 10GE/GE SFP+/SFP slots, 4× 10GE SFP+ ULL (ultra-low latancy) slots, 8× GE SFP slots, 16× GE RJ45 ports, and 2× GE RJ45 Mgmt/HA ports.

What is the FG-401F?

The FortiGate 401F is the same as the FG-400F, except that it has 960GB onboard SSD storage.
