Fortinet Inc. will soon have a 100 GbE rack-sized firewall in its lineup. The company said Monday its FortiGate 3810D will be released in the fourth quarter, giving large enterprises and carriers the ability to handle 300+ Gbps throughput to meet increasing bandwidth demands.
Fortinet's survey revealed that 90% of companies are changing their IT security strategy in response to security breach news, with 56% increasing their spending on security technology.
It's tough to pick just one threat in general, but this survey points to concerns over a variety of advanced threats having a great impact," Tamir Hardof, vice president of product marketing for Fortinet, told eWEEK. "The growing frequency and complexity of threats and the new demands of emerging technology like the Internet of things [IoT] and biometrics pose the biggest challenge to IT decision makers to keep their organizations secure."
Derek Manky, who heads the research arm of Fortinet, a US cyber security company, says he has already seen evidence of an infection that scanned thousands of his clients’ machines searching for trading accounts.
"Both McAfee and Symantec have substantial threat research centers and provide incremental information on advanced threats to the alliance," John Maddison, vice president of marketing for Fortinet, told eWEEK. "It was very obvious when talking to both these companies they were keen to join the alliance, which enabled them to share the information with their own customer bases. Both McAfee and Symantec put aside market rivalries to become founding members of the alliance."
