Network Security vendor Fortinet has released three new application delivery controllers (ADCs) for enterprise datacentres and managed service providers in Australia and New Zealand (A/NZ).
The US-based firm claimed they are designed to provide scalability and availability for Internet-based applications that reside in one or more data centres.
ADCs are said to optimise enterprise application environments. Fortinet claims he market evolved from the load-balancing systems that were specifically developed to ensure the availability and scalability of websites. Enterprises now use ADCs to optimise reliability, end-user performance, data centre resource use and security for a variety of enterprise applications.
Fortinet A/NZ director of engineering, Gary Gardiner, said the solution compliments the company’s existing product range.
“We deliver the performance and security that today’s businesses require with application delivery appliances that range from 2.7 Gbps of layer-4 throughput all the way up to 50 Gbps on our new top-of-the-line FortiADC-4000D.”
The firm said the new products (the FortiADC-1500D, FortiADC-2000D and FortiADC-4000D) represent an expansion of Fortinet’s ADC line-up that provides high performance and strong security for high-volume application environments while reducing overall total cost of ownership.
