Fortinet Wednesday announced new FortiManager, FortiAnalyzer and FortiMail hardware platforms designed for SMB and enterprise branch office customers in need of more scalable device management, security event analysis and email filtering capabilities.

The new FortiManager-200D enables customers to centrally manage 50 per cent more devices and quadruples the memory over the FortiManager-100C platform it replaces.

TheFortiAnalyzer-200D features a 30 per cent increase in log processing capabilities and a 50 per cent increase in the number of devices that can connect to the new platform that replaces the FortiAnalyzer-100C. 
And the FortiMail-200D more than doubles the message processing performance when compared with the FortiMail-100C. All three platforms are assembled at Fortinet’s Sunnyvale, California headquarters. 
Fortinet saidthe FortiManager family reduces management costs and overhead associated with distributing security updates or installing security policies across managed assets. Its device discovery, group management, auditing facilities and ability to manage complex mesh and star VPN environments are key time-saving features for resource-constrained environments.
The FortiAnalyzer platform integrates network logging, analysis and reporting to increase an organization’s knowledge of security events throughout its network. With the FortiAnalyzer family, organizations can centralize security event analysis, forensic research, reporting, content archiving, data mining, malicious file quarantining and vulnerability management in a single platform.
FortiMail is a messaging security platform that utilizes Fortinet’s years of experience in protecting networks against spam, malware and other message-borne threats. In addition to providing a sophisticated inbound and outbound filtering engine for both spam and malware, the platform also features a powerful Identity Based Encryption capability to enable secure message transmission. With the ability to operate in mail server, gateway and transparent processing modes, the FortiMail family provides a flexible range of deployment options.
