Under the hood of the Fortinet FG40F Next Generation Firewall
Fast, secure, affordable remote access is now critical to everyone. Fortunately, the Fortinet FG40F next-gen firewall checks all the boxes! The Fortinet FG- boasts Threat Protection Throughput of 600 Mbps, and 5 Gbps of Firewall Throughput. In addition, it pushes 490 Mbps of SSL/VPN Throughput.
And, the same FortiSOC4 processor in all the larger FortiGates powers the FG-40F. This adds built-in SD-WAN networking to the FG-40F’s powerful security features. And that reduces your total cost of ownership even more. How? By addressing networking and security a single appliance!
So, what are FortiCare and FortiGuard Support contracts? How do I choose one of these?
Good question. When you purchase a Fortinet FG40F Next Generation Firewall, you have several options to go along with the firewall itself. These support contracts ensure that your firewall performs at its highest possible level, for as long as possible. The options on the right combine FortiCare and FortiGuard. Without these support options in place, a firewall would basically be an expensive doorstop.
What are they, then?
