FortiWiFi Thick Access Points integrate enterprise-class 802.11a/b/g/n wireless LAN functions into the FortiGate Network Security Platform. FortiWiFi provides access to both the wired and wireless LAN in a single unit, with full logging and reporting capabilities. This integrated single-device solution is perfect for small and medium business, enterprise branch offices and retail deployments.
Leveraging Fortinet's FortiOS network security operating system with FortiASIC processors, FortiWiFi provides a comprehensive and high-performance array of fully integrated security functions including:
- Firewall, VPN, and Traffic Shaping
- Intrusion Prevention System (IPS)
- Web Filtering
- Application Control (e.g., IM and P2P)
- VoIP Support (H.323. and SCCP)
- Layer 2/3 routing
FortiWiFi appliances are simple to deploy and manage through the web-based user interface, enabling secure wired and wireless network configuration within minutes. In addition to the web-based interface, single pane of glass management is provided by FortiManager, enabling centralized remote management for numerous FortiWiFi devices across the enterprise.
Each FortiWiFi model can provide true network segmentation for increased security and control, by broadcasting a number of different SSIDs (or Virtual Access Points). The wireless coverage in a FortiWiFi network can be easily increased with the addition of FortiAP devices, creating a cost effective enterprise-class wireless LAN infrastructure.
In addition to the FortiWiFi Wireless LAN capability, other network interface options are available to connect the FortiWiFi to various WAN technologies, including wireless broadband via an integrated Express Card slot or ADSL-A.
