Fortinet has added to its next-generation firewall (NGFW) appliance family.

The Sunnyvale, Calif.-based company says the FortiGate-3600C offers large enterprises and managed security service providers (MSSPs) more control with network, user and device-defined policy; integrated security with firewall, IPS, application control and VPN funcationality with advanced behavior inspection for improved advanced threat detection; and enhanced performance for every customer environment.

“As advanced, blended threats become the norm, the consolidation of security applications onto multi-function appliances becomes even more important in order to ensure complete visibility into all traffic," said John Grady, research manager at IDC. “However, organizations need to consider platforms that not only provide the necessary security functionality, but also support high performance metrics at a reasonable cost – both upfront and throughout the lifespan of the appliance."

The Fortigate-3600C is available now. Fortinet sells through channel partners.
