Designed for growing mid-to-large size businesses in need of cutting-edge next generation firewall protections, the Fortinet FortiGate 300E security appliance is an all-in-one solution for protecting a network against intrusion, malware, and other malicious activity. Fortinet is one of the industry leaders in computer security, and all their expertise has gone into creating the smart 300E, while ensuring it remains easy for administrators to deploy and use on a day-to-day basis.
The 300E offers a generous selection of LAN ports, including sixteen Gigabit Ethernet ports as well as sixteen Gigabit SFP ports, along with two management ports, a USB port, and a console port. You also have the option to upgrade to the 301E, which adds 480GB of onboard storage for caching server logs and other information which speeds up operations.
Speed is the key with the 300E, with multiple onboard chips doing the heavy lifting. At the heart of the FortiGate 300E is Fortinet's own custom Security Processing Unit, a processor dedicated to analyzing threats even at multi-gigabit speeds. Enhancing it are two more specialty chips: The Network Processor boosts packet processing and guarantees the firewall does not become a bottleneck, while the Content Processor rapidly analyzes encrypted content for any hidden threats.
This adds up to a multipurpose routing, switching, and VPN security system that offers the rapid throughput a large organization needs:
- Firewall: 32Gbps
- IPS: 5Gbps
- NGFW: 3.5Gbps
- Threat Protection: 3Gbps
The 300E remains easy to manage, thanks to the integrated FortiOS operating system and the single-pane-of-glass interface it presents to the user. Everything is handled through a simple, but powerful, GUI. Deployment and configuration can be accomplished within minutes and, for larger rollouts, zero-touch deployment based on shared configurations further reduce the workload.
