SUNNYVALE, Calif., October 1, 2012 - Fortinet® (NASDAQ: FTNT) - a world leader in high-performance network security – today announced the introduction of four new wireless access points along with three new two-factor authentication products that enhance the industry’s most complete Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) and wireless network security solutions.
Fortinet is introducing four new additions to its wireless access point product family with the release of the FortiAP-320B, FortiAP-223B, FortiAP-112B and the FortiAP-11C.

The new additions to the FortiAP product family provide customers looking to integrate secure wireless access with their network security with significant advantages that include faster connections, simplified deployment, centralized “single pane of glass” management and reduced total-cost-of ownership.

The new tokens work in conjunction with both FortiGate and FortiAuthenticator platforms.
