Designed for growing mid-sized businesses and other operations in need of high-powered security systems, the Fortinet FortiGate 200E series of security appliances offer superior protection against the threats your network is likely to face in the years ahead. Backed by a multi-chip system designed to quickly and efficiently monitor all the data on your network, a Fortinet 200E firewall can work as a switching, routing, or Wi-Fi controller, while also protecting VPN access.
The 200E includes 14 primary Gigabit Ethernet ports, alongside 4 more Gigabit SFP ports, plus two Gigabit Ethernet WAN ports. You also have the option of adding 480GB of onboard storage, for holding security logs and activity caches for simplified local analysis.
The overall expected throughput speeds are:
- Firewall: 20Gbps
- IPS: 2.2Gbps
- NGFW: 1.8Gbps
- Threat Protection: 1.2Gbps
The 200E shines thanks to its variety of onboard processors. At the center of the system is the SoC3 SPU - combining a dedicated RISC-based processor along with Fortinet's own custom Security Processing Unit. In addition, it contains two other specialty chips. The Content Processor speeds analysis of network packets, particularly decryption of encoded secure traffic. The Network Processor works inline, speeding overall network responsiveness and preventing bottlenecks.
The result is a robust firewall capable of keeping up with the demands of your business, while still providing truly enterprise-grade smart threat detection and automated mitigation. The Fortinet 200E almost manages itself, while offering administrators deep insights into their network activity and threat profiles with a simple to use single-pane-of-glass interface. For larger networks, the Fortinet FortiGate 200E works seamlessly alongside other Fortinet appliances to create a single shared security fabric.
Your business needs the best in network protection, to keep intruders and malware away from your mission-critical systems and databases. This is precisely what Fortinet offers, at affordable prices.
