NETWORK security vendor Fortinet has announced new FortiManager, FortiAnalyzer and FortiMail hardware platforms designed for small and medium business (SMB) and enterprise branch office customers in need of more scalable device management, security event analysis and email filtering capabilities.
“Our SMB and enterprise customers with branch offices are seeking more scalable device management, security event analysis capabilities and a full-featured secure messaging solution in affordable appliances that can be deployed quickly,” said George Chang, Fortinet regional director for South-East Asia and Hong Kong.
“The latest FortiManager, FortiAnalyzer and FortiMail models address this growing demand. Customers now have additional choices to deploy more powerful and affordable appliances for the command and control of their Fortinet security infrastructures.
“At the same time, they have a broader selection of analysis tools to eliminate blind spots in their security posture,” he said.
As a centralized management appliance providing command and control of Fortinet-based security infrastructures, the FortiManager family reduces management costs and overhead associated with distributing security updates or installing security policies across managed assets, Fortinet said in a statement.
The new FortiManager-200D enables customers to centrally manage 50% more devices and quadruples the memory over the FortiManager-100C platform it replaces.
The FortiAnalyzer platform integrates network logging, analysis and reporting to increase an organization’s knowledge of security events throughout its network. With the FortiAnalyzer family, organizations can centralize security event analysis, forensic research, reporting, content archiving, data mining, malicious file quarantining and vulnerability management in a single platform.
TheFortiAnalyzer-200D features a 30% increase in log processing capabilities and a 50% increase in the number of devices that can connect to the new platform that replaces the FortiAnalyzer-100C.
Finally, FortiMail is a messaging security platform that utilizes Fortinet’s years of experience in protecting networks against spam, malware and other message-borne threats, the company claimed.
FortiMail-200D more than doubles the message processing performance when compared with the FortiMail-100C.
FortiManager-200D, FortiAnalyzer-200D and FortiMail-200D are available now.
