FortiGates offer strong security at a good price point and the Fortinet FG-200F Next-Gen Firewall 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, Fortinet 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, 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.
The FG-200F pushes Firewall Throughput of 27 Gbps, IPsec VPN Throughput of 13 Gbps, and SSL Inspection Throughput of 4 Gbps. It has Threat Prevention Throughput of 3 Gbps. and SSL VPN Throughput of 2 Gbps.
Features of the Fortinet FG-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.
This is a true next generation firewall, ideal for large, complex deployments. It uses both static and dynamic deep packet inspection when distinguishing safe applications from unsafe ones.
