“Fortinet delivers the industry’s only SD-WAN ASIC-powered WAN edge solution to deliver better performance, reduce point products and achieve unmatched ROI for our customers. Recently joining this line-up is the FortiGate 200F, which completes Fortinet’s portfolio of SD-WAN ASIC-based appliances, enabling us to provide flexibility of both WAN edges and thin edges using the same platform to help large enterprises secure any edge at scale.”
Fortinet® (NASDAQ: FTNT), a global leader in broad, integrated and automated cybersecurity solutions, today announced continued customer momentum of Fortinet Secure SD-WAN and the official completion of the roll-out of Fortinet’s SD-WAN ASIC-based FortiGate Next-Generation Firewalls with the FortiGate 200F series.
Enterprise customer deployments of Fortinet Secure SD-WAN average a 70 percent return on investment (ROI) in three years and 100 percent ROI in five years. Fortinet attributes this to its ability to consolidate SD-WAN, advanced routing, a wireless controller, and in many cases built-in LTE connectivity, on Fortinet’s industry-leading next-generation firewall built around a common operating system and centralized management and orchestration system.

FortiGate 200F Delivers Flexible Support for Both Converged and Thin Edges
The recently announced FortiGate 200F Next-Generation Firewall completes the roll-out of FortiGate appliances to include the latest version (SOC4) of Fortinet’s SD-WAN ASIC, built to accelerate the performance of WAN Edge deployments. The FortiGate 200F showcases Fortinet’s ability to support both WAN edge and thin edge deployments.
- WAN Edge: FortiGate 200F integrates industry-leading SD-WAN and next-generation firewall capabilities to allow enterprises to consolidate point products and secure the WAN edge.
- Thin Edge: For enterprises with thin branch offices, FortiGate 200F allows the easy replacement of legacy routers in favor of an SD-WAN appliance with integrated advanced routing capabilities and support for diverse network topologies. This allows organizations to move from traditional IP routing to application-centric networks and reduce costs.
