New Fortinet Firewall Supports Organizations in Building Hybrid IT Architectures

The FortiGate 3000F is the newest Fortinet Next-Generation Firewall (NGFW) powered by Fortinet’s purpose-built NP7 and CP9 security processing units (SPU). The company’s newest firewall is aimed at helping businesses construct hybrid IT infrastructures.

Fortinet’s FortiGate 3000F firewall offering would enable ultra-scalable, security-driven networks that seamlessly converge networking and security without compromising security performance, thanks to built-in network and security convergence, dynamic network segmentation, automation, and natively integrated Zero Trust Network Access (ZTNA) capabilities.

FortiGate 3000F would help secure the data center and hybrid IT architectures in the following ways:

  • Scalability – FortiGate 3000F continues to deliver the highest scalability via purpose-built Fortinet SPUs, including the NP7 and CP9. These are designed to significantly improve the speed, scale, performance, efficiency, and value of Fortinet systems while also significantly enhancing user experience, decreasing footprint, and cutting power consumption.
  • Advanced Networking and Explicit Application Control – FortiGate NGFWs provide a natively integrated ZTNA access proxy, which enables users to access applications and resources from anywhere, at any time, with continual authentication, while also establishing and maintaining effective compliance and security controls. On the WAN (Wide Area Network) side, FortiGate NGFWs seamlessly merge and accelerate networking and security, and on the LAN (Local Area Network) side, they offer industry-leading routing capabilities to peer with numerous providers and link with a wide range of manufacturers. Many Fortinet networks have streamlined their operations by replacing routers with a single FortiGate device that provides networking and security capabilities.
  • Enterprise-Grade Security – With over 565,000 customers, Fortinet solutions would seamlessly weave networking, security, and essential AI/ML-powered FortiGuard services into a single platform, enabling IT teams to effectively manage internal and external threats, prevent lateral spread and ransomware, and avoid business disruptions and brand damage. FortiGate is an NGFW that provides advanced content restrictions to major services like YouTube, Vimeo, and Dailymotion, such as video filtering. Flexible rules may be created to enable one or more categories, as well as strong network security controls that can allow or ban traffic down to the channel level. The FortiGate NGFW identifies dangers concealed in encrypted routes and enables automated threat prevention with the least amount of performance, thanks to its unparalleled SSL inspection (including TLS 1.3) performance.
  • Automate and Simplify – To simplify enterprise-wide operations, the Fortinet Fabric Administration Center delivers single-pane-of-glass management, automation, and orchestration throughout the Security Fabric, including support for over 470 ecosystem partners. Its open API architecture and cross-environment connections would also make security posture and enforcement across multi-cloud settings easier and more uniform.
