Overview:

The FortiSwitch Secure Access Family delivers outstanding security, performance and manageability. Secure, Simple, and Scalable, FortiSwitch is the right choice for threat conscious businesses of all sizes. Tightly integrated into the Fortinet Security Fabric via FortiLink, FortiSwitch can be managed directly from the familiar FortiGate interface. This single pane of glass management provides complete visibility and control of users and devices on the network regardless of how they connect. This makes the FortiSwitch ideal for SD-Branch deployments with applications that range from desktop to data center aggregation, enabling businesses to converge their security and network access.

Security Fabric Integration through FortiLink

FortiLink is an innovative proprietary management protocol that allows our FortiGate Next Generation Firewall to seamlessly manage any FortiSwitch. FortiLink enables the FortiSwitch to become a logical extension of the FortiGate, integrating it directly into the Fortinet Security Fabric. This management option reduces complexity and decreases management cost as network security and access layer functions are enabled and managed through a single console. FortiLink integration enables centralized policy management, including role-based access and control, making it easy to implement and manage. This control and manageability make FortiSwitch ideal for SD-Branch deployments.

Highlights

  • Designed for installations from desktops to wiring closets
  • Ideal for SD-Branch deployments
  • Centralized security and access management from the FortiGate user interface
  • Optimal for converged network environments; enabling voice, data and wireless traffic to be delivered across a single network
  • Supports non-FortiLink deployments through onboard GUI, API or command line configuration
  • Up to 48 ports in a compact 1 RU form factor
  • Stackable up to 300 switches per FortiGate, depending on model
  • Supports Wire-speed switching and Store and Forward forwarding mode

Deployment

FortiLink Mode

The FortiSwitch Secure Access Switch series integrates directly into the FortiGate* Connected UTM, with switch administration and access port security managed from the familiar FortiGate interface. Regardless of how users and devices connect to the network, you have complete visibility and control over your network security and access through this single pane of glass, perfectly suited to threatconscious organizations of any size.

FortiSwitch Fortilink Mode Deployment Example

Standalone Mode

Virtualization and cloud computing have created dense high-bandwidth Ethernet networking requirements in the data center, pushing the limits of existing data center switching. FortiSwitch Data Center switches meet these challenges by providing a high performance 10 or 40 GE capable switching platform, with a low Total Cost of Ownership. Ideal for Top of Rack server or firewall aggregation applications, as well as enterprise network core or distribution deployments, these switches are purpose-built to meet the needs of today’s bandwidth intensive environments.
