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.
