Fortinet's firewall boosts security for IoT enterprises

The company has announced two new products to help companies secure their assets

Fortinet has revealed two new firewalls to help enterprises entering the world of IoT protect their systems as their network demands increase substantially.

The company's 3980E Enterprise Firewall is a terabit per second network security appliance, offering 1.12 Tbps firewall performance combined with 470 Gbps secured VPN throughput, making it perfect for organisations with very high network throughput requirements.

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

"Enterprises cannot afford to sacrifice their network performance or their security features in this highly competitive and constantly evolving landscape. Fortinet is continually innovating to deliver the highest performing and most secure solutions on the market, enabling our customers to fully leverage their technology infrastructures with the confidence that their users and data are secure."
