Fortinet FGR-70F Ruggedized UTM firewall

The Fortinet FGR-70F Ruggedized UTM firewall is the ruggedized version of the FG-70F. The FGR-70F follows the 40F, 60F, and 80F. It is seen as a replacement for the very good FG-60F.

The Fortinet FGR70F is a SECURE SD-WAN security appliance. In other words, it protects what’s inside your perimeter (firewall), and what’s on the freeways leading out of it. 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.

Fortinet’s super-secure approach is characterized by easy deployment and management which is granular and detailed, but still clear and intuitive. This is all possible because of the new, ridiculously fast SoC4 processor inside the FG-70F.

The SoC4 is the first processor of it’s kind. The fact that it’s no longer the only of it’s kind tells you all you need to know about whether it works or not! For example, this ground-breaking little chip ID’s and steers for over 5,000 known cloud applications! But I hear you thinking…

Gimme some numbers on the Fortinet FGR70F!

It pushes 10 Gbps total Firewall Throughput, and 1 Gbps of Next Gen Firewall Throughput. You also get 1.4 Gbps of IPS Throughput and 6.5 Gbps of SSL VPN Throughput, with firewall latency at 3 μs. The FG-80F is good for up to 100 users. There’s also 800 Gbps of Threat Protection Throughput.

These numbers are very comparable to the FG-60F it is replacing, except that it hits over twice as many concurrent sessions (1.5M), and Threat Protection is 800 Mbps vs 700 Mbps for the FG-60F.

In short, the Fortinet FGR70F sort of bullies other appliances in it’s price range. That may change as the other guys catch up, (maybe). But, consider that at the moment the FGR-70F’s Firewall Throughput is 8x greater (on average) than similar-priced firewalls with their drowsy, generic CPU’s. In addition, it handles WAY more Concurrent Sessions, much higher IPsec VPN Throughput!

What is Ruggedized?

Traditional firewalls are designed and intended for the world of offices and corporations. The FortiGate Rugged Series are industrially-hardened, all-in-one firewalls that deliver specialized threat protection against malicious attacks for industrial control networks.

Specifically, the FGR-70F is fanless and uses robust components that ensure reliable operation in harsh industrial environments.

FortiGate 70F Rugged: Who’s this designed for?

It’s most suited for the “M” part of “SMB.” In other words, mid-sized businesses, and also large branch settings. There’s really nothing entry-level about what this appliance can do. And, we’d love to tell you more about the FortiGate 70F Rugged. So, why not give Corporate Armor a call at 877-449-0458, or reach out at [email protected]? Thanks for reading!
