Fortinet introduced the Fortinet network firewall, which allows security-driven networking to safeguard multiple edges. 

FREMONT, CA: Fortinet has revealed the new Fortinet network firewall, the FortiGate 2600F, which allows security-driven networking to safeguard multiple edges, like hybrid data centers, multi-cloud environments, and large-scale remote workers. Driven by Fortinet's purpose-built security processing units (SPUs), NP7, and CP9, with Security Compute Scores up to 10 times higher than competitor models, the FortiGate 2600F provides a few of the industry's highest output figures.

Enterprise companies are increasing their digital transformation efforts while continuing to protect a remote and hybrid workforce. In this dynamic setting, implementing enterprise-class security anywhere is essential. Fortinet's security-driven networking method speeds up the integration of networking and security to safeguard any edge, which includes enterprise data center, WAN, and cloud edges -all from a unified network firewall platform.

The FortiGate 2600F offers complete visibility with SSL monitoring (including TLS1.3), identifies unauthorized applications and threats, and prevents external risks from users and data flowing through the hybrid data center environment. FortiGate 2600F provides hardware-accelerated resilience for flood attacks with the help of IPv4 and IPv6 DDoS (Distributed Denial of Service) metering to ensure business continuity at the edge of services.

The FortiGate 2600F is designed for versatility to allow speed and productivity for a massive remote workforce to come online. To fit with the current cybersecurity of an enterprise, the FortiGate 2600F guarantees the confidentiality and integrity of sensitive company data in transit and monitoring. The FortiGate 2600F provides a 9x faster IPsec VPN on average to enable business continuity to be introduced by organizations while maintaining current operations.

According to a new Fortinet survey of cybersecurity leaders, nearly 70 percent of companies are worried about insider attacks. In a single compact platform, the FortiGate 2600F integrates segmentation, SD-WAN, and network firewall functionality to support large organizations minimize complexity, simplify operations, and take advantage of ROI benefits. The 2600F also decreases the attack surface by segmentation and AI/ML-based FortiGuard Labs Services to protect corporate data and business applications. The FortiGate 2600F allows hardware-accelerated VXLAN segmentation to provide stable and super-fast hybrid IT architecture communication utilizing Virtual Extension LAN (VXLAN).
