FortiGate 3700D: high performance firewall at low cost

Quality, speed, or price—pick two. This is a common axiom applied to a variety of business issues, and it is generally true that you have to sacrifice one in order to have the others. Fortinet believes it may be able to deliver all three at the same time, though, with the launch of the new FortiGate 3700D firewall appliance.

For a business data center, the axiom changes some. It’s more like, “You can have performance or protection: choose.” Basically, anything you put in place to monitor and analyze traffic introduces lag that can impede performance. It’s difficult to have both at the same time, but that has been the challenge that Fortinet and its rivals have attempted to address.

The new FortiGate 3700D firewall appliance.

Fortinet’s new FortiGate 3700D is built on a proprietary FortiASIC NP6 processor and promises to eliminate security bottlenecks. Fortinet claims the appliance delivers blazing aggregate throughput of 160Gbps.

The current generation of high-performance firewalls support data throughput of 40Gbps, but that’s not good enough any more. Businesses are upgrading their datacenters to keep up with advances in networking in general. There’s no point in implementing new Ethernet technologies and high-speed ports if the network backend can’t keep up, and according to a recent survey conducted by Infonetics, eight in 10 organizations are looking to upgrade their datacenter for performance of 100Gbps or better.
