Fortinet launches FortiGate-3600C offering advanced network security appliance

Infotech Lead America: Fortinet has launched FortiGate-3600C that offers advanced network security appliance in the industry.

“As advanced, blended threats become the norm, the consolidation of security applications onto multi-function appliances becomes even more important in order to ensure complete visibility into all traffic,” said John Grady, research manager at IDC.

Targeting large enterprises and MSSPs, the FortiGate-3600C runs FortiOS 5 includes next-generation firewall capabilities.

Features of FortiGate-3600C:

More control with network, user and device defined policy
Integrated security with firewall, IPS, application control and VPN functionality with advanced behavior inspection for improved advanced threat detection
Enhanced performance for every customer environment
More Control with Network, User and Device-Defined Policies

Fortinet said the 3600C can be deployed in a standalone security application mode such as a firewall or as an NGFW that includes firewall, IPS and application control. Additional applications such as VPN or advanced threat detection, which uses behavioral-based detection in conjunction with a cloud-based reputation system that tracks botnets and elements of their threat life cycle, can easily be enabled and configured.

As a next-generation firewall (NGFW) at the perimeter, the FortiGate-3600C can be deployed as an ultra-low latency firewall for enterprise networks, datacenters, campus and wireless networks. MSSPs or distributed enterprise networks have the option of deploying the FortiGate-3600C with more security services enabled as a unified threat management (UTM) device.

“Large enterprise customers that require granular visibility into and control over thousands of applications, users and devices operating across their network infrastructure will find the FortiGate-3600C an ideal solution,” said Patrick Bedwell, vice president of products for Fortinet.
