Fortinet’s Next-Gen System-on-a-Chip Spurs the World’s Most Powerful Distributed Enterprise Firewall

Fortinet FortiASIC SOC3 and FortiGate 60E series

Fortinet has reinvented its Security Fabric offerings with the introduction of its third-generation FortiASIC SOC3 System-on-a-Chip architecture. The new rollout is sought to accelerate the new FortiGate 60E series security appliances to further speed its already best-in-class throughput with consolidated security and networking capabilities.

Digital economy and explosion of traffic on corporate infrastructures are helming industry giants to adopt highly efficient custom ASIC (Application Specific Integrated Circuit) technologies to meet surging demands and maintain a competitive advantage.

The FortiGate 60E is touted to enable distributed enterprises, branch offices and SMBs to leverage the superior protection of Fortinet’s Security Fabric.

The SOC3 claims to doubles the secure networking performance over the enterprise-class CPUs found in competing security solutions and propels the new FortiGate 60E series distributed enterprise firewalls to unprecedented levels of security and performance.

The FortiGate 60E is the ideal entry point for distributed enterprises, branch offices and SMBs that require the advanced protection, networking performance, unified visibility and ease of management offered by Fortinet’s Security Fabric.

The FortiGate 60E series consolidates numerous security and networking functions into a single compact appliance:

  • Advanced Security: Enterprise Firewall, IPS, VPN Inspection, WAF, SSL Inspection and Cloud-Based Sandboxing
  • Performance Networking: Routing, Load Balancing, WAN Optimization, 3G/4G connectivity and 802.11ac WiFi

These capabilities unlock deployment options such as software defined WAN (SD-WAN), while the new FortiWiFi 60E – based on the FortiGate 60E – adds high-speed 802.11ac wireless access point capabilities to further reduce complexity and eliminate the need for additional wireless equipment.

All of these features are administered through an intuitive and unified management console that includes options for a cloud-based or hosted solution. These powerful management solutions arm distributed enterprises with the visibility, analytics and control offered by Fortinet’s Security Fabric.

The Next-Generation of Security Processing

Fortinet’s SOC3 leverages advances in silicon design to consolidate networking and security- specific processors onto the same die alongside a quad-core CPU. SOC3’s security-optimized architecture delivers deep security analysis and inspection capabilities that meet and exceed enterprise-class, general-purpose CPUs that power competing products. This architecture also yields design efficiencies that reduce power consumption to a meager 5 Watts and enable a fan-less design that runs quietly enough to deploy in any environment.

Citing on the new rollout, Michael Xie, founder, president and chief technology officer of Fortinet said, “The limitations of traditional security solutions often require distributed enterprises and SMBs to compromise on network performance and ease of management to accommodate the advanced security needed to combat today’s expanding threat landscape. Eliminating this need to compromise is the driving force behind Fortinet’s continued investments into researching and developing innovative network security processing solutions that free organizations to deploy the advanced security solutions necessary to protect their organizations while enabling them to meet growing device and performance requirements today and into the future.”


Fortinet’s FortiASIC SOC3 System-on-a-Chip debuts in the FortiGate 60E series of distributed enterprise security appliances and is available today. Please contact your authorized Fortinet channel partner for pricing and details.
