Fortinet Claims Fastest Firewalls in the World

Tony Bradley Tony Bradley Profile: Tony Bradley

Fortinet is introducing two new products that will be available in Q2 of 2012. Fortinet plans to do a live, real-world benchmark with BreakingPoint Systems (acting as 3rd party independent validation) that will demonstrate the 5000 series chassis is in fact the world’s fastest firewall. The chassis is also the world’s fastest IPv6 firewall (able to handle 100 Gbps of traffic).

The two new products being introduced are:
1.       FG-3240C appliance:

The FortiGate-3240C is a full-featured, next-generation firewall appliance that provides optimal scalability with twelve hardware-accelerated 10-Gigabit Ethernet (10-GbE) ports, the highest 10-GbE port density in its class.

2.       FG-5101C blade:

FortiGate-5101C security blades feature the latest FortiASIC processors to accelerate the performance of FortiGate-5000 Series ATCA-compliant chassis-based systems, providing up to 100 Gbps of IPv6 firewall throughput for next-generation networks.
