Powered by Security Processing Unit (SPU)

Traditional firewalls cannot protect against today’s content- and connection-based threats because they rely on off-the-shelf hardware and general-purpose CPUs, causing a dangerous performance gap. Fortinet’s custom SPU processors deliver the power you need—up to 520Gbps—to detect emerging threats and block malicious content while ensuring your network security solution does not become a performance bottleneck.


  • Combines a RISC-based CPU with Fortinet’s proprietary Security Processing Unit (SPU) content and network processors for unmatched performance
  • Fortigate 71F Kuwait delivers industry’s fastest application identification and steering for efficient business operations
  • Accelerates IPsec VPN performance for best user experience on direct internet access
  • Enables best of breed NGFW Security and Deep SSL Inspection with high performance
  • Extends security to access layer to enable SD-Branch transformation with accelerated and integrated switch and access point connectivity

Hardware Features

Compact and Reliable Form Factor

Designed for small environments, you can place it on a desktop or wall-mount it. It is small, lightweight, yet highly reliable with a superior MTBF (Mean Time Between Failure), minimizing the chance of a network disruption.

Access Layer Security

FortiLink protocol enables you to converge security and the network access by integrating the FortiSwitch into the FortiGate as a logical extension of the NGFW. These FortiLink enabled ports can be reconfigured as regular ports as needed.
