Fortinet has expanded its Security Fabric with the introduction of its third-generation FortiASIC SOC 3 system-on-a-chip architecture.

The FortiGate 60E enables distributed enterprises, branch offices and SMBs to leverage the superior protection of Fortinet’s Security Fabric.

The SOC3 more than doubles the secure networking performance over the enterprise-class CPUs found in competing security solutions and propels the new FortiGate 60E series distributed enterprise firewalls to unprecedented levels of security and performance.

The FortiGate 60E series consolidates numerous security and networking functions into a single compact appliance:

  • Advanced security: Enterprise firewall, IPS, VPN inspection, WAF, SSL inspection and cloud-based sandboxing.
  • Performance networking: Routing, load balancing, WAN optimisation, 3G/4G connectivity and 802.11ac WiFi.

These capabilities unlock deployment options such as software defined WAN (SD-WAN), while the new FortiWiFi 60E – based on the FortiGate 60E – adds high-speed 802.11ac wireless access point capabilities to further reduce complexity and eliminate the need for additional wireless equipment.

These features are administered through an intuitive and unified management console that includes options for a cloud-based or hosted solution. These powerful management solutions arm distributed enterprises with the visibility, analytics and control offered by Fortinet’s Security Fabric.
