SKU: FG-600F~PVAR Category: Brand: Fortinet


The Fortinet FG-600F Next-Gen firewallis 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-600F 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.

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.

What’s an SD-WAN firewall?

Well, the FG-600F 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?

The numbers are impressive. Firewall Throughput clocks in at 140 Gbps, NGFW Throughput is 9 Gbps, Threat Protection is 8 Gbps, and IPS Throughput is 12 Gbps. It can run 8 million concurrent sessions, and 500,000 new sessions/second.

What About Other Features?

The Fortinet FG-600F Next-Gen firewall 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 600F incorporates a built-in routing feature to provide excellent performance with scalable encrypted IPSEC tunnels.
