Infotech Lead Asia: Fortinet has launched new FortiManager, FortiAnalyzer and FortiMail hardware platforms designed for SMB and enterprise branch office customers.
The new offerings provide scalable device management, security event analysis and email filtering capabilities.
The new FortiManager-200D enables customers to centrally manage 50 percent more devices and quadruples the memory over the FortiManager-100C platform it replaces.
TheFortiAnalyzer-200D features a 30 percent increase in log processing capabilities and a 50 percent increase in the number of devices that can connect to the new platform that replaces the FortiAnalyzer-100C.
The FortiMail-200D more than doubles the message processing performance when compared with the FortiMail-100C. All three platforms are assembled at Fortinet’s Sunnyvale, California headquarters.
The FortiManager family is designed to reduce management costs and overhead associated with distributing security updates or installing security policies across managed assets. Its device discovery, group management, auditing facilities and ability to manage complex mesh and star VPN environments are key time-saving features for resource-constrained environments.
Moreover, the FortiAnalyzer platform integrates network logging, analysis and reporting to increase an organization’s knowledge of security events throughout its network. With the FortiAnalyzer family, organizations can centralize security event analysis, forensic research, reporting, content archiving, data mining, malicious file quarantining and vulnerability management in a single platform.
“Our SMB and enterprise customers with branch offices are seeking more scalable device management, security event analysis capabilities and a fully featured secure messaging solution in affordable appliances that can be deployed quickly,” said Michael Xie, chief technology officer with Fortinet.
“The latest FortiManager, FortiAnalyzer and FortiMail models address this growing demand. Customers now have additional choices to deploy more powerful and affordable appliances for the command and control of their Fortinet security infrastructures. At the same time, they have a broader selection of analysis tools to eliminate blind spots in their security posture,” Xie added.
