Fortinet Delivers 1 Tbps Firewall Throughput

Says new FortiGate 5144C exceeds 1 terabit per second throughput performance

Fortinet announced it has redefined the standard for firewall performance by being the first network security vendor to deliver a firewall – the new FortiGate 5144C – that exceeds 1 terabit per second (Tbps) throughput performance and offers 10GbE, 40GbE and 100GbE connectivity options.

This firmly positions the FortiGate 5144C as the world’s fastest firewall, making it the ideal security solution for carriers, service providers and large-scale enterprises who have the most demanding performance and scalability requirements for network security, and who want unparalleled versatility and flexibility in delivering high performance data, application and network protection to their customers and users announced the press release.

“Major market drivers, such as big data, cloud-based services and the explosion of Software as a Service translates to data centers needing exceptionally fast and secure security platforms to protect their applications and data,” said Ken Xie, founder and CEO of Fortinet. “Others have claimed to have the fastest firewall, but no other vendor has actually delivered this level of performance and security, which enables customers to build out their data centers for the future, knowing that their firewalls will not be a choke point.”

The new FortiGate 5000 Series is Fortinet’s flagship, chassis and blade firewall platform. Built for large scale enterprise data center and carrier-class environments, the FortiGate 5000 series includes fully redundant, hot-swappable power supplies, fans and firewall blades for maximum uptime.

The new 5001D security blades provide the core security capabilities to the new 5000 Series. These represent the 5th generation process boards that can process 100 Gbps throughput. Each 5001D blade embeds two FortiASIC NP6 processors.

For datacenters or telecom environments that require 100 Gigabit Ethernet connectivity, Fortinet presents the new FortiController-5913C controller blade.
