The FortiGate-200D series provides a mid-range network security
platform designed for branch offices and SMB customers while the
FortiGate-140D series offers high port density solutions ideal for
branch office network consolidation. The new FortiGate-100D is a
third-generation UTM appliance that provides additional storage while
the FortiGate-90D series delivers high performance network security
in a desktop footprint. The FortiGate-30D series is a compact network
security appliance that features plug-and-play simplicity to support
rapid deployment.  
New Networking and Performance Innovations 
To meet the increasingly sophisticated networking needs of
distributed enterprises and retail outlets, Fortinet has added an
integrated WiFi controller to its FortiGate-200D series and an
integrated WiFi and L2 switch controller to the FortiGate-140D and
FortiGate-100D appliances. With the addition of switching
functionality and high-density Gigabit Ethernet ports for the
FortiGate-240D and FortiGate-140D series, customers now have the
opportunity to fully integrate their switching needs with FortiGate
platforms and retire their legacy switches. The upgraded FortiGate
product line also features a Power over Ethernet (POE) option for the
FortiGate-140D platform. The PoE option eliminates the need for
additional PoE injectors, which improves network performance while
allowing multiple devices such as FortiAP wireless access points,
FortiFone IP phones and IP cameras to connect directly to the device. 
The FortiOS Advantage
 FortiOS is a security-hardened, purpose-built
Operating System that is the foundation of all FortiGate(R) network
security platforms. It can be used across large or small enterprise
infrastructures.  
More Protection - Advanced Threat Protection for Fighting Advanced
Persistent Threats - FortiOS 5 includes a new, advanced anti-modern
malware detection system for identifying and mitigating Advanced
Persistent Threats. Together with superior, industry-validated
antivirus signatures, FortiOS 5 delivers a multi-layered approach to
dealing with today's most dangerous security threats, including: 


 
--  FortiGuard Antivirus Engine, which identifies standard AV threats and
    also uses advanced heuristics and sandboxing to determine malicious
    behavior
--  FortiGuard Analytics, which identifies zero-day wares for further
    analysis in the cloud
--  FortiGuard Botnet Database, which contains up-to-date information
    about IP reputations and prevents remote command and control
    communications
--  Fortinet Web Filtering, which uses URL matching and advanced DNS-based
    web filters to identify potentially harmful websites

  
More Control - Feature Select for Simplifying Configurations and
Deployments
 With FortiOS 5 Feature Select, enterprises can quickly
and easily configure their FortiGate appliances based on their unique
business and security requirements. These preset configurations are
enabled with a single button click at the time of system setup or at
any time during the system's deployment. Configuration options
include: 


 
--  FW - includes high-speed firewall and VPN
--  NGFW - includes firewall, intrusion prevention and application control
--  ATP - includes advanced threat protection and endpoint control
--  WF - includes Web filtering and explicit proxy
--  NGFW + ATA - includes NGFW and ATP features
--  UTM - includes all previously mentioned features plus email filtering,
    data loss prevention and vulnerability scanning

  
More Intelligence - Contextual Visibility for Enhanced Security
Reporting and Management
 FortiOS 5 delivers deeper insights into
historic or real-time network activities using detailed analytics.
Data that can be extracted includes IP and Port, geographical IP,
session type, user names, network usage, network coverage and the
types of applications and devices that are connecting to the network.
With this, administrators can use correlated data to identify top
clients associated with particular threats and further isolate
suspicious Websites and IP addresses. 
The FortiGate Advantage
 The award-winning FortiGate Network Security
Platform delivers unmatched performance and protection while
simplifying the network. Fortinet offers models for any deployment
requirement, from the desktop FortiGate-20 series for small offices
and retail networks to the chassis-based FortiGate-5000 series for
large enterprises, service providers, data centers and carriers.
FortiGate platforms integrate the purpose-built FortiOS(TM) operating
system with custom FortiASIC(TM) processors and the latest-generation
CPUs to provide broad, high-performance security. 
Updated FortiGate Product Family At-a-Glance
 The FortiGate-200D
series delivers up to 42 Gigabit Ethernet (GE) ports and up to 4 Gbps
firewall throughput and 1 Gbps of IPSec VPN performance.  
Featuring up to 42 GE ports, including two small form-factor
pluggable (SFP) slots, the FortiGate-140D also serves as a
high-speed, next-generation firewall with advanced threat protection
(ATP) capabilities. The appliance provides onboard storage for WAN
optimization and visibility along with an integrated WiFi and switch
controller. The FortiGate-140D-POE offers a Power-over-Ethernet
variant to easily connect network devices such as access points and
IP phones. The FortiGate-140D-POE-T1 features a built-in T1
interface. 
The FortiGate-100D is a third generation network security appliance
that also serves as a high-speed next-generation firewall with ATP
security features. Like the FortiGate-140D series, the FortiGate-100D
delivers onboard storage for WAN optimization and an integrated WiFi
and switch controller. This appliance includes up to 20 GE ports. 
FortiASIC Advantage
 Two versions of the FortiGate-90D are now
available including a wireless (802.11a/b/g/n)-equipped appliance.
Designed using the FortiASIC-SoC2 for superior firewall, IPSec VPN,
SSLand IPS hardware acceleration, the FortiGate-90D provides up to 16
GE ports, reliable storage for local logging, reporting and WAN
optimization and easy setup with the help of FortiExplorer via a USB
interface. 
FortiASIC-SoC2 provides groundbreaking hardware-accelerated network
security performance. The SoC architecture combines general purpose
processing power with Fortinet's custom ASIC technology into a single
chip, simplifying the overall appliance design while delivering
industry-leading performance. The FortiASIC-SoC2 enables
enterprise-grade security performance at a breakthrough price point
and a simpler appliance design for smaller networks. Architectural
advancements of the FortiASIC-SoC2 include 109 million transistors
and the use of more advanced semiconductor technologies and design. 
Rounding out the FortiGate product line upgrades is the
FortiGate-30D, a simple-to-deploy desktop appliance specifically
designed for small businesses with limited technical resources. This
appliance, which also features the FortiASIC-SoC2 for exceptional
price/performance, provides up to five GE ports and enhanced ease of
use via FortiOS Lite, a streamlined version of Fortinet's network
security operating system. A wireless equipped version -- the
FortiWiFi-30D -- is also available.  
"The traditional definition of UTM is continually evolving as
customers consolidate more functionality within their Network
Security Platform. Fortinet pioneered the integrate wireless Access
point Controller and has now redefined UTM again with fully
integrated switching capability," said John Maddison, vice president
of marketing for Fortinet. "With no less than ten new or upgraded
FortiGate products being introduced today, we're providing the most
scalable platform to meet every customer deployment
need."
