The Fortinet FortiWiFi-30E Firewall with 24×7 FortiCare-FortiGuard is much more than a typical firewall. It has many features and a lot of ability for its diminutive price tag. Features include IPS, Next-Generation Firewall, Threat Protection, and AntiVirus Scanning and Web Filtering. Plus, there’s DNS Filtering, Application Control, SSL VPN and a Web Application Firewall for running on-premise web services.
In addition, it has a USB port, a Console Port, 1x GE WAN port and 4x GE Switch Ports. The FG 30E can be used as a basic hardware firewall and SD-WAN device. As such, you’ll have NAT, TCP ports restriction, traffic policy controls and VPN for remote access without buying any recurring FortiGuard licenses.
By the numbers
The FortiWiFi-30E features 950 Mbps Firewall, 300 Mbps IPS, 200 Mbps NGFW, and 150 Mbps Threat Protection Throughput. The 30E offers a great level of protection and far exceeds the expectations of an appliance at this price point.
The interface is very intuitive, and settings are easy to find. It’s certainly doable for a novice to configure. And, with a little know-how these devices can be deployed very quickly and seamlessly. One of the cool features of the Fortinet FG-30E is Traffic Shaper.
You can assign a high priority to VoIP traffic and a minimum amount of bandwidth to ensure you clients can hear you clearly and easily. You will also like the ability to schedule firewall policies. For example, you can lock users out of social media except for during their lunch break. It’s a breeze with Fortinet Schedules.
Although this device is usable without a software license, the real security benefits come with a subscription to FortiGuard services. Even as the smallest Fortinet model, the FG-30E can provide all NGFW advanced security features of larger models with these services.
The 30E is very stable with a high-level of protection and performance for up to 20 users. It would be perfect for homes and small businesses who require more protection and visibility than a modem/router with a built-in firewall.
