Fortinet has announced the release of two new next-generation firewall platforms.

The FortiGate-300D and FortiGate-500D are said to be ideal for midsize enterprises, branch offices, as well as state and local government, education, healthcare and other market segments that need strong security and easy-to-manage functionality at affordable price points.

Fortinet vice-president of marketing, John Maddison, said organisations have been forced to look for next-generation firewalls due to the changing threat landscape.

“With Fortinet’s high performance appliances, any natural firewall refresh or web filtering renewal presents the opportunity to add new security functions yet consolidate security devices – a ‘win win’ scenario for customers.”

The security vendor said the the FortiGate 300D and 500D offer enterprise capabilities such as: NSS Labs recommended next-generation firewall capability; IPS, anti-malware and anti-phishing; flexible Web filtering of more than 100 million sites across 75 content categories; actionable visibility and rich reporting; and an optional NSS Labs recommended breach detection system.

The new platforms, along with the existing FortiGate 200D-POE and 240D-POE, is now available in Asia-Pacific from authorised Fortinet channel partners.

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.
