Enterprise Network Protection and Threat Prevention
Fortinet’s FortiGate next-generation firewalls (NGFW) provide organizations supreme protection against web-based network threats, including known and unknown threats and intrusion strategies. Deployed on-premise, through virtual hardware, or in the cloud, FortiGate firewalls seamlessly integrate with FortiGuard Labs security services to extend and strengthen an enterprise’s overall security efforts from network edge to core.
FortiGate NGFWs effectively protect company networks from malware, security exploits, and dangerous websites in both encrypted and non-encrypted traffic. Integrations with other Fortinet security services provide additional threat intelligence and other deep security capabilities to significantly increase security visibility and coverage.
FortiGate NGFWs use advanced security processor (SPU) technology to drive industry-leading security performances with ultra-low latency, helping maintain peak performances and security for SSL encrypted traffic.
FortiGate NGFWs give organizations a multitude of flexible networking capabilities and integrations, including integrations with advanced layer 7 security and virtual domains. Each firewall provides a variety of high-speed interfaces to help organizations with data center or WAN deployments keep operating costs as low as possible.
FortiGate NGFWs offer security teams an intuitive management console to efficiently build security automations, monitor security performances, and fine-tune policy configurations from a single pane of glass.
Unified Security Fabric
FortiGate NGFWs natively integrate with Fortinet’s substantial portfolio of security services and products (as well as approved partner products) to provide seamless security coverage and control across the entire network.
