Fortinet accelerated interface modules increase the flexibility of FortiGate and FortiCarrier platforms with 10-Gigabit Ethernet and Gigabit (GbE) Ethernet interface Options. They also provide additional security performance for the platforms, adding wire-speed firewall and near wire-speed IPSec VPN security for traffic traversing the module's ports.
The embedded FortiASIC Network Processors (NP) is what makes the modules' increases in performance possible. By performing firewall and IPSec VPN security functions at the interface level, modules relieve processing overhead from the host system, freeing resources for other functions.
