Fortinet Continues to Expand its FortiASIC-NP6 Based FortiGate Platform; Delivering Best-in-Class Cybersecurity to Mid-Market Organizations and Large Branch Offices

SUNNYVALE, Calif., July 15, 2015 – Fortinet® (NASDAQ: FTNT) – the global leader in high-performance cybersecurity solutions, today announced the launch of the FortiGate 400D and the FortiGate 900D next-generation firewalls (NGFWs), with the enhanced performance required to function as an advanced internal segmentation firewall (ISFW). These new appliances further bolster Fortinet’s broad portfolio of integrated security solutions while delivering five times greater NGFW performance than competing products. With the introduction of these two solutions, Fortinet has again made high-performance, cutting-edge cybersecurity more accessible for mid-market and enterprise organizations.

This announcement was made following the recent news that Fortinet has hired two new sales vice presidents to focus on continued growth and momentum in the enterprise and mid-enterprise market segments.

Best-in-Class Protection for Mid-Market Organizations and Large Branch Locations
Organizations of all sizes are being targeted by cyber criminals and must defend their critical infrastructures and proprietary data from advanced, highly focused threats more than ever before. Yet, increased bandwidth requirements and network utilization complicate the process, particularly as organizations increase in size and scope. What they need are industry-leading solutions that provide the security effectiveness and features to protect from advanced threats, while delivering the performance and connectivity to future-proof their infrastructures.

Fortinet’s new FortiGate 400D and 900D NGFWs were engineered to deliver high-performance security and specifically tailored to meet the grueling demands of mid-sized and enterprise organizations today and into the future. Leveraging Fortinet’s legendary FortiASIC-accelerated performance, both Appliances utilize Fortinet’s proprietary Network Processor 6 (NP6), providing the FortiGate 400D with throughput performance of 16 Gbps and propelling the FortiGate 900D to speeds of 52 Gbps.

Coupled with the consolidated feature-sets of the FortiOS operating system guarantees improved Intrusion Prevention System (IPS) stream performance high-throughput, broad security, deep inspection, rich analytics, granular controls and ease-of-use. Reinforced with industry-leading threat intelligence from FortiGuard Labs, the FortiGate 400D and 900D deliver the best-in-class protection and performance required by mid-sized and enterprise organizations.

The high-speed capabilities of each appliance also enable both the FortiGate 400D and 900D to be configured as Internal Segmentation Firewalls, providing cutting-edge protection from advanced internal threats. Fortinet has brought a whole new level of advanced threat protection capabilities to mid-market organizations and large branch locations.

“Companies are not only deploying NGFW’s at the border but also Internal Segmentation Firewalls (ISFW’s) within their network.” said John Maddison, Vice President of Marketing at Fortinet. “Internal networks run at much higher speeds and the new FortiGate 400D and 900D powered by Network Processor 6 gives customers a cost effect way to internally secure small office environments or Wide Area Networks.”
