It uses Ixia's BreakingPoint and latest CloudStorm 100GE Application and Security Test Load Module, helping the appliance operate as a data centre firewall, to secure the traffic between data centres or as an internal data centre segmentation firewall.

The company's second launch, the 7060E Enterprise Firewall, is a modular, chassis-based firewall, utilising up to four security processing blades and up to two I/O modules to boost interface density and network bandwidth.

It too was put through Ixia's BreakingPoint and latest CloudStorm 100GE Application and Security testing and demonstrated 100 Gbps of NGFW performance, 160 Gbps application control and 120 Gbps intrusion prevention throughput.

"Cloud computing, IoT, and a hyper-connected digital economy have been straining enterprise IT resources and rapidly increasing the performance demands required from today's security solutions," said Ken Xie, founder, chairman of the board and chief executive officer at Fortinet
