Fortinet announces 100 Gbps+ Next-Generation Firewall

Fortinet has introduced its FortiGate 6000F Series of Next-Generation Firewalls (NGFW). The first in the series, the FortiGate 6000F incorporates a new hardware processing architecture that delivers the validated performance of a Fortinet chassis in a compact appliance form factor to deliver advanced security for exponentially increasing enterprise traffic.


The FortiGate 6000F series NGFWs are ideally suited for enterprise edge networks that prioritize threat protection and encryption inspection throughput in a form factor that enables high density, energy efficiency, and deployment simplicity. It is built around Fortinet’s next-generation hardware architecture that combines discrete, multi-CPU processing cards that enable chassis-class performance, resilience, and capacity in a compact appliance form factor.


Fortinet’s new F-series includes the FortiGate 6300F and FortiGate 6500F, which are high-performance, compact and easy-to-manage NGFW appliances that are integrated within the Fortinet Security Fabric.


“Enterprise adoption of the cloud is massively increasing the volume of traffic that needs to be inspected at the enterprise edge. In addition to this, the ever-increasing percentage of encrypted traffic and today’s NGFW’s need to perform at levels unheard of five years ago. The FortiGate 6000F high-end firewall series is built upon a new architecture that delivers the industry’s highest threat protection and encryption inspection performance to ensure enterprises can scale their defences and meet the evolving needs of their business,” says Rajesh Maurya, Regional Vice-President, India & SAARC, Fortinet.
