Fortinet announced the FortiGate 2600F, Fortinet’s latest network firewall that enables security-driven networking to protect multiple edges. This network firewall is developed for protecting hybrid data centers, multi-cloud environments, and large-scale remote workforces.
A single platform for protecting edge and remote workforces
The FortiGate 2600F is powered by Fortinet’s purpose-built security processing units (SPUs), NP7 and CP9. This network firewall delivers high-speed networking, increased scalability, and optimized performance features. Enterprises and service providers can manage security risks with IPS, SSL inspection, and threat protection in the FortiGate NGFW.
John Maddison, EVP of Products and CMO, Fortinet, said,
“Enterprise organizations are accelerating their digital innovation initiatives while also having to secure a remote and hybrid workforce. In this complex environment, deploying enterprise-class security anywhere is essential. Fortinet’s security-driven networking approach accelerates the convergence of networking and security to protect any edge, including enterprise data center, WAN, and cloud edges – all from a single network firewall platform.”
Additionally, FortiGate NGFW prevents volumetric attacks with HW accelerated DDoS and identifies thousands of applications inside network traffic for deep inspection and granular policy enforcement. In terms of management, it has a management console that is effective, simple to use, and provides comprehensive network automation and visibility.
