The FortiWifi™ line of wireless security gateways add a built-in 802.11a/b/g wireless access point to the enterprise-level, multi-threat protection of FortiGate appliances. They provide network, content, and application protection for wired and wireless networks without penalties in performance, cost, or manageability. FortWifi appliances combine Fortinet's FortiOS™ security operating system with FortiASIC processors and other hardware to provide a comprehensive and high-performance array of fully integrated security and networking functions including:
Firewall, VPN, and Traffic Shaping
Intrusion Prevention System (IPS)
Application Control (e.g., IM and P2P)
VoIP Support (H.323. and SCCP)
Layer 2/3 routing
FortiWifi appliances are easy to deploy and manage, with a web-based user interface that allows users to be up and running in minutes. They can also be managed remotely via the FortiManager line of management appliances. This combination of local ease of use and remote management makes FortiWifi appliances an exceptional value for remote offices, wireless service providers, retail stores, and broadband-connected telecommuter sites. In addition, FortiWifi devices can be powered by Power over Ethernet (POE) to further ease installation and deployment and reduce your equipment investment.
