The Fortinet FortiGate-401F Next-Gen firewall is perfect 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-401F 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 Fortinet Fortinet FG-401F can do what it does because of its extraordinary new SD-WAN ASIC processor. It is 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.
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 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.
