Reviewing the New Fortinet FortiGate 100F firewall

Fortigate 100F – The F stands for fast

Well not really, but Fortinet’s latest firewall, the FortiGate 100F does feature throughput speeds well above similar competition (Fortinet says it’s 10 times faster than others in the VPN throughput category, with 11.5 Gbps). Throughput is just one reason why this new firewall, ideal for mid-size enterprise deployments, stands out. The other reason? SD-WAN. The new FortiGate 100F is purpose-built for SD-WAN (also known as software-defined wide area networking). Its processor is the first-of-its-kind SD-WAN ASIC, Fortinet’s SoC4, which allows this new device to combine the excellent next-generation firewall security and the top-notch SD-WAN you’ve come to expect from Fortinet in one appliance. Join us as we take a closer look at the FortiGate 100F in our latest feature review video:
