Fortinet launches new firewalls FortiGate-300D and FortiGate-500D


Fortinet has introduced two new next-generation firewall platforms dubbed as FortiGate-300D and FortiGate-500D. Both the solutions will provide mid-enterprises with five times next-generation performance, enabling increased protection against all sorts of advanced threats.

Speaking about the new solution, Rajesh Maurya, Country Manager, India & SAARC at Fortinet said, “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. 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.”

The FortiGate 300D and 500C offers best security protection keeping in mind their price tag. Both the firewalls come equipped with the latest FortiASIC NP6 processors, which operates in-line with firewall and VPN functions to deliver several key benefits. Along with this they also consists of 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.

These new firewalls will be available for purchase from this month onwards.
