SUNNYVALE, Calif. -- Fortinet, the pioneer and leading provider of multi-threat security solutions, today set a new industry standard for high performance, multi-threat security with the announcement of its FortiGate-3600A appliance. The FortiGate-3600A also offers increased deployment flexibility by including additional ports and slots that can be leveraged for wide area network interfaces.
The adoption of multi-threat security appliances among enterprises, mobile carriers and MSSPs is rapidly growing, with performance, ease of administration, deployment flexibility and cost efficiencies as major drivers. However, increased data traffic and malicious blended attacks are forcing IT administrators to continually struggle with bandwidth scalability and network performance.
The integration of Fortinets next generation FortiASIC Content Processor and new system components boost performance up to 50 percent and make the FortiGate-3600A the fastest multi-security appliance in the industry. Competitive multi-threat security appliances typically offer 30 to 50 percent less firewall throughput than what can now be offered by the FortiGate-3600A.
