Fortinet Secure Switches

Fortinet’s Secure, Simple, Scalable Ethernet Solutions

Legacy Ethernet LANs face many challenges. These include exponential growth in the number of network-enabled devices and applications, innovation in wireless LANs requiring more backhaul throughput, and legacy LAN design that has forced complex “bolt-on” security implementations. FortiSwitch Data Center and Secure Access Switches offer a broad portfolio of secure, simple, and scalable Ethernet solutions for applications that range from desktop to data center. Our Secure Access and Data Center Switches can be managed standalone or integrate directly into the Fortinet Security Fabric via the FortiLink protocol. FortiLink is a key supporting technology of the FortiSwitch, which enables its ports to become logical extensions of our FortiGate security appliance.This allows the FortiGate to auto-discover a connected FortiSwitch for provisioning, including attachment of policy to ports or VLANs. With an integrated access layer, the FortiGate provides consolidated visibility and reporting with physical and logical topology views of the Security Fabric through FortiView. Lastly, FortiLink enables stacking of up to 256 switches per FortiGate, depending on the model. All of these features are included and have no licensing fee.

Secure switching includes:

high performance icon Security features to protect vulnerable infrastructure with no slowdown connectivity icon Ability to enable voice, data, and wireless traffic across a single network
segmentation icon Data separation compliance with network segmentation icon benefits scalable High scalability with 1/10 GE or 40 GE port density
simple icon FortiLink port-level network access option, centrally manageable from any FortiGate

Secure Ethernet LAN Switches

The challenges legacy Ethernet LANs currently face are most apparent at the access layer.  These include exponential growth in the number of network-enabled devices and applications, innovation in wireless LANs requiring more backhaul throughput, and legacy LAN design that has forced complex “bolt-on” security implementations. This challenge is felt in small to medium businesses, distributed enterprises, branch offices, and home offices. FortiSwitch Secure Access Series switches deliver superior security, performance, and manageability in a broad portfolio of secure, simple, and scalable Ethernet access layer switches.

FortiSwitch Includes:

  • Ability to enable security features to protect your infrastructure with no slow down
  • Network segmentation to help in data separation compliance
  • FortiLink facilitated provisioning and management through our industry leading FortiGate
  • Capability to enable voice, data, and wireless traffic across a single network

Data Centre Ethernet LAN Switches

With 10 or 40 Gigabit Ethernet access ports and a high throughput backbone, FortiSwitch Data Center Switches are ideal for top-of-rack server or firewall-aggregation applications. These high-speed switches are also well suited for enterprise network core or backbone network installations.

Single-pane-of-glass management through tight integration with FortiGate using FortiLink.

FortiSwitch Data Center Series Switches include:

  • Ability to aggregate and extend security features into the data center network
  • Capability to meet the requirements of bandwidth-intensive virtualized data centers and enterprise networks
  • FortiLink facilitated provisioning and management through our industry leading FortiGate
  • A highly scalable, flexible solution with 1, 10 and 40 GbE options
