Fortinet delivers world’s fastest firewall

Boasts speeds exceeding 1Tbps

Fortinet is the first network security vendor to deliver a firewall that exceeds 1 terabit per second (Tbps) throughput performance.

The Californian-based firm also said its new firewall, the FortiGate 5144C offers 10, 40 and 100 Gigabit ethernet (GbE) options.

Fortinet founder and chief executive, Ken Xie, said major market drivers, such as Big Data, Cloud-based services and the explosion of Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) translates to datacentres needing exceptionally fast and secure security platforms to protect their applications and data.

“Others have claimed to have the fastest firewall, but no other vendor has actually delivered this level of performance and security, which enables customers to build out their data centers for the future, knowing that their firewalls will not be a choke point.”

Fortinet has also become the second largest network security appliances vendor in the Asia-Pacific Japan (APJ) region according to data from IDC’s quarterly network security appliances tracker.

Cisco holds the largest market share, Fortinet is second with and Check Point is third. The APJ market is said to be worth $US611.65 million.

Educating from the epicentre - Why distributors are the pulse checkers of the channel

Educating from the epicentre - Why distributors are the pulse checkers of the channel

​As the channel changes and industry voices deepen, the need for clarity and insight heightens. Market misconceptions talk of an “under pressure” distribution space, with competitors in that fateful “race for relevance” across New Zealand. Amidst the cliched assumptions however, distribution is once again showing its strength, as a force to be listened to, rather than questioned. Traditionally, the role was born out of a need for vendors and resellers to find one another, acting as a bridge between the testing lab and the marketplace. Yet despite new technologies and business approaches shaking the channel to its very core, distributors remain tied to the epicentre - providing the voice of reason amidst a seismic industry shift. In looking across both sides of the vendor and partner fences, the middle concept of the three-tier chain remains centrally placed to understand the metrics of two differing worlds, as the continual pulse checkers of the local channel. This exclusive Reseller News Roundtable, in association with Dicker Data and rhipe, examined the pivotal role of distribution in understanding the health of the channel, educating from the epicentre as the market transforms at a rapid rate.
