Networks continue to transform from traditional hub and spoke architectures to hybrid IT, till one thing has gone on to remain the same. The data centre is integral to a modern enterprise. It is known to support a network of applications, devices and uses that can be complex to secure in relation to the volume of network traffic. Coming to the next generation Fortinet firewall models the data centre has to be secure that provides high-performance capabilities with comprehensive threat and coordination across the entire enterprise. With the rise of sustainability goals, it has to be undertaken in a cost-efficient manner.
The new Fortinet 3200 F and 900 G were purpose-built to address those needs.
