With cyber threats and high profile data breaches continuing to make headlines, organizations large and small understand the importance of increasing security, especially security of their networks. This means moving forward with projects to upgrade from traditional to next generation firewalls, as well as the addition of antimalware and web filters.
5 Times Next Generation Performance
Fortunately, Fortinet’s midrange FortiGate appliances deliver 5 times the next generation performance of alternate products to enable mid size organizations to add new, top-rated security technologies yet still consolidate security devices. Specifically, this breakthrough performance allows most organization to combine stateful firewall with intrusion prevention and application control, plus have room to add Web Filtering and Antimalware all on one device. As a result, you get increased security beyond the traditional stateful firewall and web filter while removing one or more web proxies from your environment. Further, rich dashboards and reporting deliver the visibility and control you expect from a next generation firewall.

Finally, these features of the FortiGate FortiOS Network Security Platform are routinely submitted to independent real-world tests so you can be confident in their effectiveness. You can also see how they stack up against the competition. Fortinet FortiGate NGFW appliances deliver all of this at an affordable price that fits your constrained budgets.
Branch Office Firewall
Today’s branch office security gateway is no longer just a basic firewall and site-to-site VPN gateway. With the prevalent adoption of cloud based applications – both public and private, there are more associated requirements for both access availability and security. A security gateway will need robust network and high availability capabilities that include intelligent WAN link forwarding and flexible network deployment options. From the security perspective, a branch office firewall should provide abilities to identify users, locations, devices and applications; thereby control access with finer granularity and visibility. With Fortinet solution for enterprises, branch offices can enjoy significant protection with centralized facilities such as File Analysis using the FortiSandbox and FortiAuthenticator for user access management.

They run on the World’s most advanced Security operating systems that meet each organizations unique requirements. Advanced features such as integrated endpoint control and token server helps organizations to rapidly deploy enhanced security to their mobile workforce while device based policies aid to implement BYOD securely.
