FortiGate Modules Accelerated Interface Modules

Fortinet's Accelerated Interface Modules increase the flexibility of FortiGate® and FortiCarrier™ platforms with 10-Gigabit Ethernet and Gigabit Ethernet (GbE) interface Options. They also provide additional security performance for the platforms, adding wire-speed firewall and near wire-speed IPSec VPN security for traffic traversing the module's ports.

Fortinet accelerated interface modules include embedded FortiASIC™ processors to accelerate the performance of your FortiGate system. By performing firewall and IPSec VPN security functions at the interface level, modules offload processing overhead from the host system, freeing system resources for other functions. They are available in both single-width and double-width Advanced Mezzanine Card (AMC) standards, as well as the Fortinet Mezzanine Card (FMC) form factor for FortiGate-3950 series appliances, and the Rear Transition Module (RTM) form factor for FortiGate-5000 series chassis.

Testimonials


In looking for a network security vendor, it was very important for us to find one that would support our new EVDO network, one that we could manage remotely and one that had consolidated functionality so that we could easily and cost-effectively add network security functions on an as-needed basis. Fortinet was the only vendor that met all these needs.
