Fortinet, today announced its new high-performance FortiGate Next-Generation Firewalls (NGFWs), comprised of FortiGate 3600E, FortiGate 3400E, FortiGate 600E and FortiGate 400E Series, enabling organizations to implement Intent-based Segmentation into their security architecture.
The Intent-based Segmentation allows organizations to achieve granular access control, continuous trust assessment, end-to-end visibility and automated threat protection. In addition to delivering Intent-based Segmentation, FortiGate 3600E offers 30Gbps threat protection and 34Gbps SSL inspection performance. FortiGate 3400E offers 23Gbps threat protection and 30Gbps SSL inspection performance.
As part of Fortinet’s Security Fabric, the new FortiGate NGFWs give organizations an integrated and consistent security policy across on-premise and cloud assets. Powered by customized Security Processor Units (SPUs), the new FortiGate NGFWs provide full visibility and advanced threat protection without the fear of performance degradation.
FortiGate has a longstanding trajectory of earning NSS Labs Recommended ratings in the Next-Generation Firewalls group tests given its high SSL inspection performance with minimal performance degradation as one of the reasons.
“Segmentation is becoming as fundamental as patching vulnerable systems” said John Maddison, EVP of products and solutions at Fortinet. “Intent-based Segmentation aligns business goals with infrastructure changes and ultimately, dynamically separates infrastructure to protect users, data and systems. A fundamental element of Intent-based Segmentation is the high-performance NGFW. The new FortiGate 3400E and 3600E Series provide industry-leading threat protection and SSL inspection performance allowing customers to implement a holistic end-to-end architecture.”
As existing security strategies are failing to keep pace with a complex security landscape, organizations are seeking adaptive and predictive protection that prevents the spread of threats throughout the network. With Intent-based Segmentation, organizations achieve adaptive security by intelligently segmenting IT assets in accordance with the business intent, like addressing compliance, by having multiple enforcement points. Adaptive protection is achieved by implementing granular access control based on varying trust levels and high-performance advanced security.
