We are announcing the FortiGate 6000F series, a new class of ultra-high performance threat protection appliances.
Fortinet is introducing a new line of ultra-high performance NGFW appliance series to address enterprise edge and data center consolidation needs for very high levels of threat protection and SSL inspection in a compact easy to use form factor.
The 6000F series includes two models - the 6300F and the 6500F NGFW appliance. Both models support identical network configurations, but come with different internal security processors to meet customer needs. Both the 6300F and the 6500F are available in storage versions (6301F/6501F) that support the latest 2TB NVMe SSD disks.
The 6000F series utilizes a new hardware architecture for the first time in an appliance that load balances network traffic to support a very large number of endpoint connections without imposing performance penalties. Compact 3U in size, the 6000F appliances also deliver the industry’s fastest threat protection and SSL inspection performance, which are key criteria for next generation firewalls deployed at the enterprise edge. The 6300F and the 6500F support high-speed network interfaces for 10G/25G/40G/100G, and Fortinet is first to market with the 25G data rates that are increasingly required in new network architectures.
