“Fortinet scores top mark in Data Centre IPS Tests” – NSS Labs

If your organization requires serious network throughput, and the highest level of available security performance, the FortiGate 3000D Series is the NSS Labs tested and recommended solution.  

Optinet Systems is pleased to share the news that Fortinet (Nasdaq: FTNT) once again earns top marks in all categories for Security Effectiveness (99.9%), Real-World Performance (Tested Sustained Throughput), and Value (Low TCO per Protected Megabit). 

The unit tested was the flagship FortiGate 3000D, which is intended for Enterprise Data Centres, offering 80+ Gbps performance and ultra-low latency. FortiGate 3000 Series is the only non-chassis security appliances on the market to offer 40Gbps and 100Gbps connectivity.  Units such as the 38xxD Series offer up to 300+ Gbps Firewall Throughput, and Full Threat Protection Real-World Performance in excess of 12 Gbps. 

The 3000D series appliances include Fortinet’s NP6 Network Processor ASICs, and CP8 Content Processors to enhance hardware accelerated security processing, greatly improving throughput and reducing latency. 

FortiASIC NP6 network processor works inline with FortiOS functions delivering:

  • Superior firewall performance for IPv4/IPv6, SCTP and multicast traffic with ultra-low latency down to 2 microseconds
  • VPN, CAPWAP and IP tunnel acceleration
  • Anomaly-based intrusion prevention, checksum offload and packet defragmentation
  • Traffic shaping and priority queuing

The FortiASIC CP8 content processor works outside of the direct flow of traffic, providing high-speed cryptography and content inspection services including:

  • Signature-based content inspection acceleration
  • Encryption and decryption offloading

Models include the 3000D (16x 10GbE interfaces), 3100D (32x 10GbE interfaces), 3200D (48x 10GbE interfaces + 2 Gigabit 1000BaseT interfaces), 3700D/3700D-NEBS (4x 40GbE interfaces + 20x 10GbE SFP+ interfaces + 8 Ultra-Low Latency 10GbE SFP+ interfaces, NEBS-Compliant [3700D-NEBS]), the 3810D (6x 100GbE CFP2 LR2 + 2x 10/100/1000BaseT interfaces) and the flagship 3815D (4x 100GbE CFP2 interfaces + 2x 10/100/1000T Management interfaces).
