Fortinet Unveils Industry's First Multi-Gigabit Next Generation Firewall in the Middle East
 

Priced Under $5,000 Sets Fortinet FortiGate-300D and FortiGate-500D Apart in Addressing Advanced Threats

Dubai, UAE, October 23, 2014 – Fortinet® (NASDAQ: FTNT) – a global leader in high-performance network security, today unveiled two new next-generation firewall platforms – the FortiGate-300D and FortiGate-500D, aimed at mid-enterprises in the Middle East region. The FortiGate300D and FortiGate 500D provide mid-enterprises with five times the next-generation performance, enabling increased protection against today’s advanced threats.  These new models are ideal for the region’s midsize enterprises, branch offices, as well as state and local government, education, healthcare and other market segments that need strong security and easy-to-manage functionality at affordable price points.

“Traditional firewalls have not kept pace with the changing threat landscape, forcing organizations to look to next-generation firewalls for a deeper level of inspection,” said Alain Penel, Regional Vice President- Middle East, Fortinet. “Mid-size enterprises are as vulnerable to advanced threats as larger organizations. With Fortinet’s high performance appliances, any natural firewall refresh or web filtering renewal presents the opportunity to add new security functions yet consolidate security devices – a ‘win win’ scenario for customers across the region. We have been witnessing a demand for affordable a well as efficient security solution; with the new product portfolio, Fortinet now offers unrivaled advance threat protection for organizations of all sizes.”

The FortiGate 300D and 500D offer industry-best price per protected next-gen gigabit throughput, and all the top rated enterprise capabilities powered by the FortiOS Network Security Platform. These enterprise capabilities include:
•NSS Labs Recommended Next Generation Firewall capability ($6 protected NG Gig)
•Top-rated IPS, Antimalware and Antiphishing
•Flexible web filtering of more than 100 million sites across 75 content categories
•Actionable visibility and rich reporting
•Optional NSS Labs Recommended Breach Detection System

As security threats evolve, network security professionals expect NGFWs to provide both security and efficiencies beyond what they can expect from traditional firewalls, according to a Forrester Consulting study.  Today, customers want gateways that fight advanced threats, like zero-day malware and that respond to new cybercriminal tactics, such as encrypting payloads or stolen data inside of an SSL tunnel.  Therefore, advanced threat prevention, sandboxing and more are becoming the norm in this new generation of NGFWs, with an emphasis on security effectiveness and performance above all else.[1]

Enterprises Benefit from the FortiASIC™ Advantage

Both the FortiGate-300D and FortiGate-500D sport the latest FortiASIC NP6 processors, which operates in-line with firewall and VPN functions to deliver several key benefits.  These include wire-speed firewall performance at the network edge for any size packets, including IPv4 and IPv6; VPN control, generic routing encapsulation (GRE) acceleration, anomaly-based intrusion prevention, and traffic shaping and priority queuing.  All of this allows for high-performance throughput, even when additional security features, such as web/URL filtering, IPS and application control, are active.
