Security vendor Fortinet is using its presence at GITEX Technology Week to popularise its recently launched unified threat management (UTM) solutions in the region. This includes the FortiGate 60B and FortiWiFi 60B, two high-performance, full-featured multi-threat security appliances designed for enterprise branch offices, retail outlets and small businesses.

The company will also be demonstrating the features of the FortiWiFi 60B solution at its stand during the show.

"Enterprise branch offices and retail outlets are targets for cyber attacks just as headquarters and large sites are, but often lack the same security defences. Additionally, the adoption of third generation (3G) wireless networks creates additional risks. The new FortiGate 60B and FortiWiFi 60B systems provide comprehensive security against network and conten tlevel threats, superior ease of management and flexible connectivity options," says Bashar Bashaireh, regional manager for Fortinet.

These new security appliances incorporate a purposebuilt FortiASIC specifically designed for high-performance multi-function security.

They also include dual WAN interfaces, an analogue modem, six internal interfaces, and one DMZ interface.

The FortiWiFi 60B provides the same features as the FortiGate 60B, but is designed specifically to address the security requirements of wireless connectivity at remote offices. This solution has built-in 802.11 a/b/g wireless support.
