Powered by SPU

Fortinet’s custom SPU processors deliver the power you need to detect malicious content at multi-Gigabit speeds

Other security technologies cannot protect against today’s wide range of content- and connection based threats because they rely on general-purpose CPUs, causing a dangerous performance gap

SPU processors provide the performance needed to block emerging threats, meet rigorous third-party certifications, and ensure that your network security solution does not become a network bottleneck

FortiGate Firewall 2600F Series Network Processor

Fortinet’s new, breakthrough SPU NP7 network processor works inline with FortiOS functions delivering :

  • Superior firewall performance for IPv4/IPv6, SCTP and multicast traffic with ultra-low latency
  • VPN, CAPWAP, and IP tunnel acceleration
  • Anomaly-based intrusion prevention, checksum offload, and packet defragmentation
  • Traffic shaping and priority queuing

Content Processor

Fortinet’s ninth generation custom SPU CP9 content processor works outside of the direct flow of traffic and accelerates the inspection

Trusted Platform Module (TPM)

The FortiGate 2600F Series features a dedicated module that hardens physical networking appliances by generating, storing, and authenticating cryptographic keys.

Hardware based security mechanisms protect against malicious software and phishing attacks.
