Does your growing SMB, or enterprise branch office, need a robust smart solution to network security, which can also work as part of a smart fabric protecting your assets from end to end? The Fortinet FortiGate 80E security appliance may be exactly what you're looking for. With a robust selection of ports to protect your downstream connections, and optional PoE+ power support for IoT devices, the 80E offers industry-leading security services at an affordable price point.
The 80E comes in two major variations. The FortiGate 80E includes twelve Gigabit Ethernet ports, along with two Gigabit DMZ ports, and two Gigabit shared media pair ports. Or, the 80E-POE adds PoE+ support to all twelve of the primary ports, giving it significant power output. Both variations can also include an optional 128Gb internal storage device, for storing system logs and caching data to speed up performance.
All product variations also include Fortinet's own SoC3 SPU, combining a RISC-based processor with a dedicated Security Processing Unit, allowing the 80E to operate at high efficiency even while under heavy loads. It accelerates performance across the firewall, while also guaranteeing faster VPN support.
No matter which product variation you choose, you will see speeds of:
- Firewall: 4Gbps
- IPS: 450 Mbps
- NGFW: 360 Mbps
- Threat Protection: 250 Mbps
You don't need to have a security expert on-staff to use Fortinet products, either. All Fortinet security devices use a shared operating system, FortiOS, which was designed for ease of use. Whether using the 80E to control routing, switching, or VPN access, it can be deployed and set up within a matter of minutes. Then all oversight is handled through a robust easy to understand single-pane-of-glass dashboard.
