SKU: FG-401F~PVAR Category: Brand: Fortinet


Fortinet FG-401F Next-Gen firewall

The Fortinet FG-401F (and 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 series 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 FG401F 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.

How’s the Performance of the Fortinet FG-400F series?

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-401F 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.

The Fortinet FG-401F Next-Gen firewall 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 difference between the FG-400F and the FG-401F?

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

The Fortinet FG-401F Next-Gen firewall can be deployed in a mid-sized to enterprise setting, main campus, or a branch. It’s a lot of firewall!
