Fortinet’s New 60F Firewall May Completely Change Office Cybersecurity

The days of relying on a standard firewall and antivirus software are over. These days, cyber attacks and security threats are more sophisticated than ever, and this makes it critical to implement even more layers of security software and equipment in order to keep your networks and data safe. Luckily, there’s a new firewall on the block that’s powerful enough to do just that. 

Fortinet: A Trusted Name in IT Innovation and Security

Here at Taylored Systems, we believe in transparency with our clients — so it’s important that we explain who Fortinet is and why we’re giving such rave reviews of their products. 

The number-one priority of our business is to give you, our client, superior IT security and management so that you can run your business as safely and effectively as possible. That’s why we use only the most innovative and top-rated services and products on the market. We partner with Fortinet because year after year, they’ve been consistently chosen as a top firewall by trusted experts in the IT industry. But it’s not just the accolades that won us over, because Fortinet’s products speak for themselves.

The FortiGate firewall is flexible enough to safeguard your network beyond the traditional boundaries of all employees working from a single location. Why is this important when it comes to cybersecurity? More and more businesses are adopting cloud services and encouraging remote working, which results in an undefined — and therefore, vulnerable — network edge. Fortinet’s firewalls seamlessly integrate into your existing infrastructure, and they have flexible protection — especially for cloud security — to protect your business and its assets safe from all angles. 

Why Your Business Needs the FortiGate 60F NGF and SD-WAN Appliance

The FortiGate 60 series is already the highest-selling next-generation firewall on the market, with more than 1.5 million units bought worldwide. If that weren’t enough, Fortinet recently introduced what’s sure to be a game changer, the FortiGate 60F next-generation firewall and SD-WAN appliance.

It comes at just the right time, too. After all, digital innovation and rapid cloud adoption has created challenges for businesses that rely on a WAN router and MPLS circuit for their branch connectivity — issues like poor user experience and a decline in productivity due to growing security concerns and growing network bandwidth constraints.

The new FortiGate 60F next-generation firewall and SD-WAN appliance, however, is an answer to all of that, driven by Fortinet’s new proprietary System-on-a-Chip 4 (SOC4) security processor. This new purpose-built processor allows SSL/TLS throughput of up to 750 Mbps, which steamrolls the industry average from comparable units. The firewall includes highlights such as:

  • Enables 700 Mbps of throughput with all intrusion detection and anti-malware features enabled, allowing customers to appropriately protect their networks without bogging down the appliance. 
  • Comes equipped with an improved SD-WAN feature with more granular application control and customization. 
  • Can be utilized as a traditional firewall for branch offices, then later migrated to a true SD-WAN setup with no significant additional cost and no replacement of hardware. The underlying software components for SD-WAN are built in to every new FortiGate! 

Here at Taylored Systems, keeping your business safe from the threats of viruses, malware and social engineering is what we do best. That’s why we partner with only the most trusted experts who provide the best-performing tools in the IT industry.
