Fortinet has announced the FortiGate 3500F Next-Generation Firewall (NGFW) to protect organisations with hybrid data centres against the ever-growing threat landscape and ransomware attacks.
Organisations are adopting hybrid data centres to increase operational agility. As the data centre infrastructure becomes more distributed, however, the attack surface expands and more blind spots emerge, increasing the potential for breaches.
It’s critical for organisations to inspect encrypted flows to detect all type of attacks to prevent ransomware and the disruption of command and control attacks stealing customer and corporate data.
John Maddison, EVP of Products and CMO at Fortinet, said: “With the FortiGate 3500F, Fortinet is the only vendor that natively integrates access proxy capabilities in its NGFWs to turn on Zero Trust network access. Additionally, FortiGate 3500F further enables organisations to protect against evolving threats and rising ransomware attacks, delivering the industry’s highest security compute rating of 6x for performance compared to competitors – including TLS1.3 – to deliver consistent end-to-end security.”
Other highlights include:
- FortiGuard Security Services and Fortinet ASIC SPUs enable hyperscale protection for ransomware and advanced threats
- Natively integrates access proxy capabilities
- Seamless user experience through consolidation
