As the global leader in high-performance cyber security solutions, Fortinet’s vision has always been to deliver broad, truly integrated, high-performance security across the IT infrastructure. To provide affordable, end-to-end security for threat-conscious small and midsized businesses, distributed organizations and branch offices, Fortinet offers the FortiSwitch line of enterprise-grade network switches.
These advanced switches offer single-pane-of-glass management through tight integration with the FortiGate firewall, providing end-point security all the way to the physical connection with the workstation. Prior to the debut of this line, organizations seeking such granular security were forced to invest in much more expensive switches, with the added burden of software licenses.
FortiSwitches can be deployed as standard layer 2 managed switches without a FortiGate firewall.
Secure and Manage Any Environment
Advanced security, performance, and manageability, even for converged or high-density environments, with voice, data and wireless traffic secured across a single network.
Control the End User
Two-stage security (device identification and user authorization), with network access based on pre-defined security policies from FortiGate, without impacting the user experience.
Accelerate Next-Gen Applications
Ideal for next-generation applications, where increased productivity can be achieved through faster network access speeds via dedicated Gigabit Ethernet ports.
Reduce Operating Costs and Complexity
Power over Ethernet (PoE) capability enables fast, easy, cost-effective installation of wireless access points and IP phones, with power and data delivered over the same network cable.
