An explosion of web-based applications and related malware, strict security requirements such as PCI-DSS and ever-faster enterprise networks are placing extraordinary demands on UTM platforms. Resource-hungry security functions such as content-based inspection can slow system performance and decrease throughput, resulting in high network latency and traffic bottlenecks.
FortiGate consolidated security platforms keep pace with today's high-volume, high-speed networks with purpose-built FortiASIC processors. These custom processors accelerate demanding security functions such as flow-based content inspection, IPv6 traffic acceleration, application control processing and encryption/decryption of VPN streams. Hardware-based acceleration ensures your network security doesn't become a business disabler.
This white paper provides a brief overview of the evolution of UTM platforms and explains why corporate IT departments are deploying specialized hardware to keep pace with new security threats and high-speed enterprise networks. Learn how Fortinet can protect your high-speed network with unmatched performance and breadth of security services.
