The FortiGate 3700DX high performance, high capacity data center firewall provides exceptional security performance. It is also equipped with additional hardware acceleration for handling unique service provider traffic such as GRE tunneling.

Eliminate Security Bottlenecks

It delivers protection in a compact 3U form factor with high port density that preserves scarce rack space while maximizing capacity. Powered by FortiASICs, the FortiGate 3700DX delivers performance parity for both IPv4 and IPv6 traffic and dramatically increases security performance, enabling you to keep pace with your evolving network.

Flexible Deployment

The FortiGate 3700DX gives you the flexibility to choose the firewall personality that best fits your requirements at the Edge or Core. You can take advantage of the high port density for physical segmentation of your network, as well as the virtual domains (VDOMs) for virtual segmentation.

Performance and Reliability for Service Provider Networks

  • Breakthrough IPv4 to IPv6 firewall performance parity
  • Specialized hardware acceleration for GRE traffic
  • Compact 3U footprint conserves rack space and minimizes energy consumption
  • Freedom to add integrated security technologies (such as IPS, App Control, VPN)
  • Cloud-ready multi-tenant support and APIs for rapid orchestration
  • FortiOS 5 delivers the most complete, battle-tested set of security functions to protect your network and data

Powered by FortiASICs

  • Custom FortiASIC processors deliver the power you need to detect malicious content at multi-Gigabit speeds
  • Other security technologies cannot protect against today' s wide range of content and connection-based threats because they rely on general-purpose CPUs, causing a dangerous performance gap
  • SPU processors provide the performance needed to block emerging threats, meet rigorous third-party certifications, and ensure that your network security solution does not become a network bottleneck

Network Processor

Fortinet's new, breakthrough FortiASIC NP6 network processor works inline with FortiOS functions delivering:

  • Superior firewall performance for IPv4/IPv6, SCTP and multicast traf fic with ultra-low latency down to 3 microseconds
  • VPN, CAPWAP and IP tunnel acceleration
  • Anomaly-based intrusion prevention, checksum of fload and packet defragmentation
  • Traf fic shaping and priority queuing

Content Processor

The FortiASIC CP8 content processor works outside of the direct flow of traffic, providing high-speed cryptography and content inspection services including:

  • Signature-based content inspection acceleration
  • Encryption and decryption offloading

Extended Processor

Additional hardware acceleration component that provides traffic handling boost for GRE traffic.
