Effective network security is the key to achieving secure digital acceleration. FortiGate NGFWs converge networking and security to protect hybrid and hyperscale data centers. They help organizations achieve a zero-trust strategy and deliver a strong security posture. One FortiGate can be shared across network and security teams for better control and compliance.

FortiGate high-end NGFWs are driven by our seventh-generation network processor (NP7) and ninth-generation content processor (CP9). These powerful, purpose-built Security Processing Units (SPUs) deliver unparalleled performance that is essential for digital acceleration. With one operating system (FortiOS) across the Security Fabric, you get:

  • Visibility and control into users and applications with integrated ZTNA enforcement
  • Protection from known and zero-day threats with top-rated FortiGuard Services
  • Prevention of unknown threats with inline sandboxing
  • Hyperscale to meet escalating business demands

Secure Your Data Center with FortiGate Network Firewalls

FortiGate NGFWs use purpose-built security processing units (SPUs) to deliver unmatched performance. They are ideal for hybrid and hyperscale data centers. Cost and complexity are reduced by eliminating point products and consolidating security capabilities such as SSL inspection, web filtering, IPS.
