Now’s the time to upgrade to the Fortigate-60F!

We are comparing the excellent FortiGate 60E firewall to the new, even MORE excellent FortiGate 60F firewall. These are both SMB appliances, but both a step or so above entry level.


Fortinet is running an upgrade program that includes many pre-F series model firewalls. The promotion is individualized, so there’s no standardized discount pricing. You simply reach out to usmailto:[email protected], or call Corporate Armor at 877-449-0458. Then, we work you a great deal on a new FG-60F, or maybe even something else! (Sorry, that’s just the way they set it’s up).

On the other hand, it can work out well, because you might just end up with a better deal than if it was a standard, one-size-fits-all upgrade package.

FG-60E and FG-60F side by side

Let’s talk speed. The FortiGate 60E came out in 2016 and has been the reigning champ of speed ever since. With a firewall throughput of 3Gbps, a threat protection throughput of 200 Mbps, and a NGFW throughput of 250 Mbps, which made it an ideal firewall for offices with around 25 users. But the 60F is crushing those numbers with its blazing fast speeds. The FortiGate 60F has a firewall throughput of 10 Gbps, a threat protection throughput of 700 Mbps, and an NGFW throughput of 1 Gbps. You can view the chart below for some more specs, but the clear winner here is the 60F.

Upgrade your FortiGate 60E!

Typically, if you want higher speeds, you have to skimp on security. If you want to apply multiple layers of security, you lose speed. But with the Fortigate-60F you can have both. The 60F firewall throughput is 10 Gbps. That is 15x faster than the industry average! With Threat Protection enabled, you get .7 Gbps throughput. That’s 4x faster than the industry average! Even with SSL inspection enabled you still get a .75 Gbps throughput, which is 11x the industry standard!

Actual Security

The FG-60E and the FG-60F have very similar security features. They both protect against malware, exploits, and malicious websites. Both have the ability to inspect both encrypted and non-encrypted traffic. Both can protect against known and emerging threats by using FortiGuard service. And both are part of the excellent Fortinet Security Fabric.

So we’ll end this the way we started: Why haven’t you upgraded!? There’s never been a better time to get your hands on this overpowering, underpriced little bully of a firewall. Corporate Armor is truly a Fortinet specialist, and a top-tier reseller with fantastic prices, and that’s not even including the discount! Call us at 877-449-0458. Thanks for reading!
