High Performance Data Center Firewall

Fortinet's FortiGate Network Security Platform provides the backbone of your Data Center Security Solution by providing increased segmentation, tenant isolation and confidentiality in today's consolidated, multi-tenant and hybrid data center environments.​

Enterprise data centers are evolving to deliver higher performance and agility, driven by rapid adoption of mobility/BYOD, big data, cloud and SaaS. Data center security needs to guard against ever more sophisticated attacks, while keeping up with rapidly increasing bandwidth requirements. Fortinet’s FortiGate Network Security Platform provides the backbone of your Data Center Security Solution by providing increased segmentation, tenant isolation and confidentiality in today's consolidated, multi-tenant and hybrid data center environments.​

10X Data Center Performance

Fortinet’s industry-leading, high capacity Data Center Firewall technologies deliver exceptional throughput and ultra-low latency, enabling the security, flexibility, scalability and manageability you demand in a data center edge or core platform. FortiGate appliance and chassis-based solutions combine a high-performance Firewall with the flexibility to enable fully integrated personalities (such as VPN, Intrusion Prevention, or Anti-malware) that provide extensive protection profiles for in-depth defense. Fortinet built the FortiGate line of Network Security Platforms, and the accompanying management and reporting tools, to exceed the performance and security requirements of even the most demanding data center environments.

Scale Up and Scale Out the Data Center

Data center networks are evolving to deliver agility and hyperscale performance. FortiGate models ranging from scale-up multi-hundred Gbps core devices to scale-out high-port-density Top-of-Rack devices support network topologies from classic three-tier hierarchical networks to flatter two-tier leaf-and-spine approaches. Consolidation of networking with the security platform enables FortiGates to be deployed in key roles in the network switching fabric, or with integrated policy.

FortiGate virtual appliance options offer further visibility into east-west traffic and SDN orchestration for virtualized and cloud environments.

Highly Available and Manageable

The FortiOS operating system and security platform provides key features for enterprise and provider data centers. Clustering and failover features ensure high-availability for business critical services; with optional fail-to-wire bypass solutions providing even further assurance against interruptions or downtime due to device failure. Virtual Domain (VDOM) support for enables versatility and manageability for more complex or multi-tenant data center environments, with limits of 250 to 3000 logical domains per device for even the most scalable managed provider or cloud environments.
