Deploying network security solutions from multiple vendors causes unnecessary complexity and introduces security gaps. Our Enterprise Firewall Solution delivers industry-leading security effectiveness with unmatched performance capabilities–through one operating system managed within a single pane of glass.
This consolidated architecture gives you an immediate responsive and intelligent defense against malware and emerging threats with an integrated security fabric that extends across your borderless network.
The FortiGate family of network security appliances represents the industry’s broadest range of firewall platforms. FortiGates, interconnected with the Fortinet Security Fabric, form the backbone of the Fortinet Enterprise Firewall Solution.
This one-minute animated video illustrates how to reduce the complexity of network security in a borderless enterprise, without sacrificing effectiveness or performance, by using Enterprise Firewalls to integrate your environment.
One operating system for all your network security
Control all the security and networking capabilities in all your FortiGate next generation firewall (NGFW) platforms across your entire network with one intuitive operating system. Improve your protection and visibility while reducing operating expenses and saving time with a truly consolidated enterprise next gen firewall platform.
Best protection validated by independent testing
FortiGate next-generation firewall solutions are certified and validated by NSS Labs, ICSA, Virus Bulletin, and AV Comparatives for superior security effectiveness.

The fastest, most flexible platform – optimized for internal, perimeter, data center, distributed, and cloud deployments
FortiOS leverages a performance-optimized security engine architecture and custom FortiASICs in the FortiGate platform to deliver faster throughput performance – up to 10 times faster than equivalent firewalls from other vendors. With FortiOS you have the flexibility to deploy exactly the capabilities and form factor you need for your specific firewall use case.
In traditional security appliances, multi-purpose CPU-based architectures become an infrastructure bottleneck. The only way for these network security appliances to scale is through purpose-built ASICs that accelerate specific parts of the packet processing and content scanning functions. ASIC technology also offers the ability to run multiple security applications without degradation in performance.
End-to-end Protection with the Fortinet Security Fabric
Fortinet is the only company with security solutions for network, endpoint, application, data center, cloud, and access designed to work together as an integrated security fabric to provide true end-to-end protection. Our enterprise firewalls collaborate with other key solutions in the Fortinet portfolio, while allowing for open integrations (via industry standard API’s). For example, when malware is detected by a FortiGate firewall in one area of the enterprise, the Security Fabric shares that threat intelligence dynamically with the rest of the interconnected security infrastructure. This reduces the need for multiple touch points and redundant policies across the enterprise and makes your network increasingly more secure and easy to manage.
