Fortinet Advances With INFW

Fortinet Advances Network Protection With an Enhanced Internal Network Firewall (INFW)

New FortiGate 3200D Delivers Industry-Leading 10GbE Port Density for Data Center Scale

Fortinet has announced on January 21, 2015 a new class of Internal Firewall to help solve the issue of Internal Network Security and the protecction of critical data. The Internal Network Firewall (INFW) addresses the ever-increasing sophistication and persistent dangers to organizations’ networks from threats that are inside the network.

Attacks are finding ever more ways into Enterprise networks, and once inside taking their time to cause damage. Enterprises need to find new ways to protect their networks from the inside-out, and to protect them continuously, so they can shorten the window of exposure to threats.

Currently, network threat protection is primarily used to prevent threats from “passing the gate”, and is largely ineffective once threats have gone through. Fortinet’s introduction of this new kind of firewall addresses these new, internal threats through it’s new INFW, which employs a layered approach to security that sits closer to the assets within an organizations’ network, segmenting and preventing breaches from spreading, while providing full visibility into all traffic types, users and devices, to help protect against threats inside the network.

The Internal Network Firewall (INFW) has been talked about for some time. However there have been limitations with firewall technology and performance that have prevented their wide-spread deployment internally. With the sophistication of recent advanced threats, the need for internal firewalls is even greater. Fortinet is providing this new capability to help customers rest assured that all of their assets are being protected.

Fortinet INFWs come pre-configured in Transparent Mode for a quick and seamless inline deployment. This approach provides immediate insights, utilizing FortiGuard Threat Intelligence services, while still providing the ability to block malicious traffic and enforce a wide range of security policies, all without making changes to the existing network.
