The FortiADC Advantage

The FortiADC-4000D delivers fast, secure and intelligent acceleration and distribution for demanding enterprise application environments while optimizing availability, user experience, performance and scalability of Enterprise Application Delivery. The solution represents an expansion of Fortinet's greater Application Delivery Controller lineup that provides high performance, rich features and strong security for high-volume application environments while reducing overall total cost of ownership (TCO).

  • 16x GE ports and 8x 10 GB SFP+ Ethernet ports provide high-throughput connectivity to eliminate network bottlenecks
  • Dedicated SSL offload hardware provides increased performance for up to 31,000 SSL connections per second
  • Dual hot-swappable power supplies provide additional redundancy by supporting separate power connections and allow power supplies to be swapped without interrupting device operations
  • A dedicated management port allows remote device control even when it's powered down

In addition, the latest FortiADC operating system update includes two new features -- IP Reputation and Virtual Domains (VDOMs) along with other enhancements, such as GUI improvements and detailed event logging, aligning with Fortinet's comprehensive strategy to create high-performance and secure application delivery products. Combined with high-capacity SSL offloading and built-in firewalls, FortiADC offers additional security features not found in other ADC appliances at these price points.
