Fortinet bolsters Web firewall product line
Dubai, January 26, 2012
Fortinet, a world leader in high-performance network security, has introduced three new members to its FortiWeb Web application firewall product family.
The new product line comprising the FortiWeb-4000C, FortiWeb-3000C FSX and FortiWeb-400C is designed to address the diverse needs of large enterprises, service providers and mid-sized organisations that must protect strategic Web applications from security breaches and data leakage.
Fortinet is also introducing enhancements to the FortiWeb 4.0 MR3 operating system that provides new logging and reporting, ease-of-use and security and configuration capabilities.
The high performance FortiWeb-4000C, targeting large data centers, is an enterprise-grade Web application firewall appliance that supports 70,000 transactions-per-second and 2 Gbps throughput. These performance benchmarks are substantially higher than competing systems in its class.
A key attribute of the FortiWeb-4000C is hardware-based acceleration for enforcing data loss prevention (DLP) policies that are designed primarily for the prevention of credit card and personal identification information theft.
By providing dedicated hardware to DLP processes, the FortiWeb-4000C delivers much better performance while freeing up core CPUs for other processing tasks.
The FortiWeb-3000C FSX retains all of the features and benefits of the FortiWeb-3000C appliance with the addition of a fiber bypass card to support large data centers requiring fiber support.
The new appliance offers highly flexible deployment options with intelligent layer-seven load balancing and hardware- and software-based acceleration to improve resource utilization and application stability, while reducing server response times.
Replacing the FortiWeb-400B, the new FortiWeb-400C is a cost-effective Web application firewall appliance with faster CPUs and substantially higher memory, a statement said. – TradeArabia News Service
