Fortinet announced new solutions that expand Fortinet’s top-tier enterprise firewalls for enterprise, data center, and service provider customers. The FortiGate 3980E is the world’s first security appliance to achieve Terabit per second (Tbps) firewall performance and the FortiGate 7060E delivers market-leading 100 Gigabit per second (Gbps) of next-generation firewall throughput in a chassis form-factor.

Ken Xie, founder, chairman of the board and chief executive officer at Fortinet said: “Cloud computing, IoT, and a hyper-connected digital economy have been straining enterprise IT resources and rapidly increasing the performance demands required from today’s security solutions. Enterprises cannot afford to sacrifice their network performance or their security features in this highly competitive and constantly evolving landscape. Fortinet is continually innovating to deliver the highest performing and most secure solutions on the market, enabling our customers to fully leverage their technology infrastructures with the confidence that their users and data are secure.”

Both enterprise firewalls leverage Fortinet’s advanced Security Processing Units (SPU) to deliver unprecedented performance, effortless scale, and superior Security Fabric defenses so large enterprises don’t have to compromise between security features or network speed disruption.
