Fortinet Extends Multi-Threat Security to Enterprise Remote Users, Branch Offices and Small Businesses

FortiGate-30B and FortiWifi-30B Priced for Growing Market of Telecommuters, ROBO and SOHO Environments

SUNNYVALE, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 05/19/09 -- Fortinet® -- a market-leading network security provider and worldwide leader of unified threat management (UTM) solutions -- today announced the FortiGate®-30B, a multi-threat security device that offers powerful network protection technology used by enterprise customers to the growing population of telecommuters, remote/branch outlets and small businesses. Designed to accommodate the ease-of-use and price sensitivities of the smallest networked environments, the FortiGate-30B provides an integrated security architecture for broad protection in a compact desktop form factor. In addition, Fortinet has also introduced the FortiWifi-30B to support small wireless networked environments.

"While deploying multiple security devices may be impractical at corporate headquarters and larger sites, it is largely impossible at many remote locations and small offices due to configuration and cost constraints," said Michael Xie, CTO and co-founder of Fortinet. "Nevertheless, the need for strong protection is constant and real and no less demanding, which is why we've enabled the same level of security inspection on the FortiGate-30B as we do on our highest-end, integrated security devices."

The FortiGate-30B and FortiWifi-30B can support a number of ROBO/SOHO environment scenarios, and can be centrally managed by enterprises and service providers through Fortinet's FortiManager(TM) and FortiAnalyzer(TM) products, regardless of deployment size:

--  Remote Sites - Large organizations working to provide network access
    to remote telecommuters, retail outlets and branch offices are facing the
    dilemma of how to do so securely, efficiently and cost-effectively. Remote
    offices are typically at higher risk since it is harder to see what
    employees are doing on the network, and who/what is being attacked. In
    order to provide secure network connectivity and effective protection from
    malicious attacks, a single device uniting firewall, VPN, intrusion
    prevention, Web content filtering, antivirus, data leakage protection and
    antispyware, specifically designed for these environments, is required.

--  Retail Outlets and Branch Offices - Dedicated VPN tunnels have become
    a standard method of providing access and conveying real time inventory and
    sales information to corporate headquarters. Once connected, these networks
    can introduce malware and Trojans acquired by their endpoints if the remote
    network is not adequately protected. Multiple security enforcement
    technologies such as firewall, intrusion prevention, antivirus and
    antimalware must be deployed to protect the entire distributed network and
    to maintain compliance with PCI, HIPPA and GLBA regulations. With three
    internal security ports, the FortiGate-30B and FortiWifi-30B offer complete
    network security protection and dedicated VPN access in a single device
    that can be provisioned and managed from anywhere in the world.

--  Remote Telecommuters - Unprotected home networks of telecommuting
    employees pose a security risk to the central enterprise network, which is
    further compounded with network usage by other family members, who must be
    kept separate from work-related access. The FortiGate-30B offers a single
    solution that provides total network protection for the telecommuter's
    entire network, while simultaneously offering dedicated VPN access to
    corporate resources. Multiple internal security ports support multiple
    devices on the internal interface, and authentication techniques ensure
    that only the telecommuter's endpoint is allowed access to corporate

--  Small/Home Offices - Small businesses have many of the same security
    requirements and regulation mandates as do large businesses to protect
    their data and that of their customers. The FortiGate-30B offers the same
    level of security inspection in a single, easy-to-deploy and cost-conscious

Wireless Security

The FortiWifi-30B adds a built-in wireless access point to the broad, multi-threat protection of FortiGate appliances, making it ideal for small remote offices, retail outlets and telecommuting environments. It offers standard 802.11 b/g support, a Wide Area Network (WAN) port for securing internet connections, and four integrated switch ports for multi-user environments.

Pricing and Availability

The FortiGate-30B is now available and competitively priced at USD $295 for the hardware and USD $395 if bundled with a one-year FortiGuard Subscription Service. TheFortiWifi-30B will be available later this quarter at USD $395 for the hardware alone and USD $495 with a 1-year service bundle. Pricing provided is applicable to the Americas region only.

Poor data quality and analytics drive down business value. In fact, Gartner estimated that the average financial impact of poor data quality on organizations is $9.7 million per year. But bad data is much more than a cost center. By eroding trust in information, analytics and the business decisions based on these, it is a serious impediment to digital transformation.
Predicting the future has never been more challenging - not because of the lack of data but because of the flood of ungoverned and risk laden information.
