The FortiGate-5000 series of consolidated security chassis-based systems offer unmatched levels of performance, scalability, and security. These high performance, low-latency systems enable service providers, very large enterprises, and telecommunications providers to deliver essential network defenses to dynamic, multi-tenant networks, including cloud-based security-as-aservice and infrastructure-as-a-service environments. Built from the ground up by Fortinet, the FortiGate-5000 series combines three essential elements to achieve these benefits: carrier-class hardware components with advanced FortiASIC acceleration, a modular architecture, and multi-threat security from the FortiOS operating system.
Since the FortiGate-5000 series hardware is composed of multiple security and networking blades, scalability for future growth comes standard. In addition, select FortiGate security modules also feature Advanced Mezzanine Card (AMC) expansion bays for additional hardware-accelerated network interfaces, local disk-based storage, and security processing offloading to specialized hardware.
