Fortinet FortiGate 200F – FG-200F Next-Generation firewall

Fortinet FortiGate 200F – Security appliance – GigE – 1U – rack-mountable

SKU: FG-200F~PVAR Categories: , Brand: Fortinet


Fortinet’s FortiGate firewalls offer strong security at a good price point and the Fortinet FG-200F is no exception. It is a very powerful, new mid-to-enterprise grade firewall. It could be thought of as the successor to the FG-200E.

The Fortinet FG-200F features throughput speeds well above similar competition (16 times faster than others in the IPsec VPN category, according to Fortinet). But throughput is just one reason why this new firewall stands out.

The other reason? 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, FG-200F 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, with SD-WAN built into your FortiGate 200F, 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.

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.

And, all SD-WAN FortiGates are managed in the same Management Center, by the same Fortinet Security Fabric. From it you can manage your entire network, with all devices, in one window. Terms like “zero-touch deployment,” and “do-it-yourself,” mean it’s super-easy to get up and running and stay that way. The FG-200F is designed to get up and purring like a kitten with minimal investment of time and expertise.

Features of the FortiGate 200F

For one, there’s Intrusion Prevention. With this feature, you get the latest defense updates on network intrusions. Also, you’ll have URL filtering. This safeguards users from websites with malware and spyware that steal private data. There’s also Application Filtering. And the FG-200F delivers 2,500 GW to GW IPSec VPN Tunnels.
