SUNNYVALE, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 07/08/14 -- Fortinet® (NASDAQ: FTNT) -- a global leader in high-performance network security, today unveiled two new next-generation firewall platforms -- the FortiGate-300D and FortiGate-500D -- that provide mid-enterprises with five times next-generation performance, enabling increased protection against today's advanced threats. These new models are ideal for midsize enterprises, branch offices, as well as state and local government, education, healthcare and other market segments that need strong security and easy-to-manage functionality at affordable price points.
"Traditional firewalls have not kept pace with the changing threat landscape, forcing organizations to look to next-generation firewalls for a deeper level of inspection," said John Maddison, vice president of marketing at Fortinet. "With Fortinet's high performance appliances, any natural firewall refresh or web filtering renewal presents the opportunity to add new security functions yet consolidate security devices -- a 'win win' scenario for customers."
The FortiGate 300D and 500D offer industry-best price per protected next-gen gigabit throughput, and all the top rated enterprise capabilities powered by the FortiOS Network Security Platform. These enterprise capabilities include:
- NSS Labs Recommended Next Generation Firewall capability ($6 protected NG Gig)
- Top-rated IPS, Antimalware and Antiphishing
- Flexible web filtering of more than 100 million sites across 75 content categories
- Actionable visibility and rich reporting
- Optional NSS Labs Recommended Breach Detection System
As security threats evolve, network security professionals expect NGFWs to provide both security and efficiencies beyond what they can expect from traditional firewalls, according to a Forrester Consulting study. Today, customers want gateways that fight advanced threats, like zero-day malware and that respond to new cybercriminal tactics, such as encrypting payloads or stolen data inside of an SSL tunnel. Therefore, advanced threat prevention, sandboxing and more are becoming the norm in this new generation of NGFWs, with an emphasis on security effectiveness and performance above all else.(1)

Enterprises Benefit from the FortiASIC Advantage
Both the FortiGate-300D and FortiGate-500D sport the latest FortiASIC NP6 processors, which operates in-line with firewall and VPN functions to deliver several key benefits. These include wire-speed firewall performance at the network edge for any size packets, including IPv4 and IPv6; VPN control, generic routing encapsulation (GRE) acceleration, anomaly-based intrusion prevention, and traffic shaping and priority queuing. All of this allows for high-performance throughput, even when additional security features, such as web/URL filtering, IPS and application control, are active.

Whether you like it or not, DevOps is on track for a remarkable alliance with security. The SEC didn’t approve the merger. And your boss hasn’t heard anything about it.

In his session at DevOps Summit, Frank Bunger, VP of Customer Success at ScriptRock, will discuss how this cathartic moment will propel the DevOps movement from such stuff as dreams are made on to a prac...

WebRTC has had a real tough three or four years, and so have those working with it. Only a few short years ago, the development world were excited about WebRTC and proclaiming how awesome it was. You might have played with the technology a couple of years ago, only to find the extra infrastructure requirements were painful to implement and poorly documented. This probably left a bitter taste in your mouth, especially when things went wrong.

Skeuomorphism usually means retaining existing design cues in something new that doesn’t actually need them. However, the concept of skeuomorphism can be thought of as relating more broadly to applying existing patterns to new technologies that, in fact, cry out for new approaches. In his session at DevOps Summit, Gordon Haff, Senior Cloud Strategy Marketing and Evangelism Manager at Red Hat, discussed why containers should be paired with new architectural practices such as microservices rathe...
