Fortinet Unveils New Appliance Deployment Platforms

By Deepika Mala, TMCnet Contributor

Fortinet (News - Alert), a provider of appliance deployment solutions, has recently released revamped FortiManager, FortiAnalyzer and FortiMail hardware platforms.

The new platforms have been designed for SMBs and enterprise branch office customers in need of more scalable device management, security event analysis and e-mail filtering capabilities.

The FortiManager family reduces management costs and overhead associated with distributing security updates or installing security policies across managed assets. The

FortiManager-200D enables customers to centrally manage 50 percent more devices and quadruples the memory over the FortiManager-100C platform it replaces. Additionally, it offers enterprise-class features in an affordable appliance and hosts security content locally, allowing administrators to have greater control over security content updates while providing improved response times for rating databases.

The FortiAnalyzer family helps organizations to centralize security event analysis, forensic research, reporting, content archiving, data mining, malicious file quarantining and vulnerability management in a single platform. The new FortiAnalyzer-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.

In order to improve security event information management, the FortiAnalyzer-200D creates a single view of an organization's security events, archived content and vulnerability assessments. And it more than doubles the message processing performance when compared with the FortiMail-100C.

All three platforms are assembled at Fortinet's Sunnyvale, Calif. headquarters.

In a statement, Michael Xie, chief technology officer with Fortinet, said: "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."
