Fortinet introduces a new security blade
Posted on 09 January 2013.
Fortinet announced the FortiGate-5001C blade, which provides large data centers as well as private and hybrid cloud deployments with consolidated security capabilities. The broad security features and ultra-low latency of the new blade are also ideal for large Internet gateways as well as centralized MSSPs.

The new blade integrates a wide range of critical security services and native 10-GbE support for FortiGate-5000 chassis-based platforms.

Delivering up to 40 Gbps of firewall throughput and up to 17 Gbps of IPSec throughput, it integrates essential security functions in a compact Advanced Telecom Computing Architecture (ATCA)-compliant blade form factor. This includes next generation firewall, virtual private network, application control, intrusion prevention, antimalware and Web filtering.

The FortiGate-5001C protects low-latency networks and multi-tenant cloud customers against the latest blended threats and Web-based attacks. In addition, Fortinetís virtual domain (VDOM) and administrative domain (ADOM) technologies enable granular control over the deployment of the new security blade to partition networks on the basis of individual customers, groups of subscribers and/or business units.

Each blade features four 10-GbE ports to provide scalability needed to help protect large enterprises and carrier networks. he FortiGate-5001C blades feature the latest FortiASIC processors that optimize session rates and accelerated IPS performance.

To simplify the management and analysis of physical and virtual security infrastructures deployed in complex data centers and multi-tenant cloud environments, Fortinet provides single-pane-of-glass management with the FortiManager family of physical and virtual management devices.

The FortiManager centralized management allows security administrators to configure and manage thousands of physical appliances and virtual machines. The FortiAnalyzer family of physical and virtual devices provides centralized logging and reporting, which enables administrators to analyze, report and archive security event, network traffic, Web content and messaging data to accurately measure policy compliance.
