Fortinet reinforces its extensive portfolio with the launch of FortiWeb 4000E and 3000E Web Application Firewalls (WAFs). The new products are boosted by FortiWeb appliances supporting the enhancements of Acunetix’s advanced vulnerability scanning solutions and integrated with Fortinet’s FortiSandbox bolstering Fortinet’s broad end-to-end cybersecurity platform protecting customer data from the entry point to the network.
Commenting on the latest commencement, Rajesh Maurya, Country Manager, India & SAARC at Fortinet said, “Application Security is an increasingly important tool in the fight against Advanced Threats. However, with many of the Web Application Firewalls on the market today, customers have to trade off Performance for Security. This problem will only get worse as customers’ network reliance and Data Center bandwidth requirements continue to increase.”
High-Performance Meets Advanced Layered Protection
The new FortiWeb 4000E delivers an unprecedented 20 Gbps WAF throughput and features built-in advanced anti-malware capabilities – a first for the WAF appliance market – while also integrating leading vulnerability scanning features from Acunetix. Fortinet’s FortiWeb appliances provide the performance, effectiveness and features that only Fortinet can deliver, surpassing all competitive solutions and resetting expectations for web application firewalls.
The FortiWeb series of WAFs are now fully integrated with Fortinet’s FortiSandbox and Advanced Threat Protection (ATP framework), ensuring that organizations can arm themselves with seamless, end-to-end protection from even the most sophisticated cyber threats. These enhancements to FortiWeb deliver advanced, layered application threat protection for medium and large enterprises, application service providers and SaaS providers demanding the very best WAFs in the industry.
FortiWeb appliances can now receive real-time security updates from FortiGuard Labs, Fortinet’s ground-breaking threat intelligence and research team. These consist of three services that can be delivered individually or in a bundle:
- FortiWeb Security Service offers advanced and constantly updated defenses against web vulnerabilities and suspicious URLs while also delivering application layer security.
- The IP Reputation Service delivers advanced protection from botnet attacks.
- Anti-malware and Anti-intrusion Services proactively protect against malware infections.
“Fortinet is well known for the best combination of performance and security, with its Network Security products, and is now bringing that knowledge to bear for the benefit of customers with its FortWeb Application Firewalls says Maurya”
“By virtue of continuously scanning evolving web apps and web sites with Acunetix Web Vulnerability Scanner, Fortinet users can now be assured that their web site security is being kept up to date regardless of what vulnerabilities could creep into their web site code through business pressures and forced short cuts in the development process. While not eliminating the need to promptly fix these issues, this will help reduce the pressure on security and dev teams. Users should scan their web apps or web sites regularly to identify new vulnerabilities as they emerge,” adds Chris Martin, GM, Acunetix.
The new FortiWeb 4000E and 3000E are exclusively obtainable through channel partner.
