Secure Access Edge Switch Deployments
This family of Ethernet access switches when paired with FortiGate® security appliances enables IT to create a Fortified access edge for your enterprise. Devices connecting to conference room or cubicle Ethernet ports are first identified and the user is authenticated. Once authenticated, appropriate policy as defined by IT is applied to contain the access of the device thus providing the Fortified access edge. The FortiSwitch platforms are purpose-built to meet the Ethernet infrastructure and provisioning needs of today’s network edge. You can scale up/out your operations performance needs with ease of use and low cost of ownership to meet the demands of bandwidth-intensive applications from small offices to large datacenters.
