Fortinet is accelerating data center security performance with its seventh-generation network processor—the NP7—which made its first appearance in the company’s FortiGate 1800 firewall earlier this year. The custom-designed NP7 is able to speed up the Fortinet 1800F to the point where it’s able to sit at the core of the network and support VXLAN network virtualization technology. The processor can thus serve as the building block for hyperscale applications, delivering performance and fast connections across the board. In fact, the FortiGate 1800 firewall with NP7 technology is 14 times faster than the industry average for products at a similar price point, according to Fortinet. The NP7 debuted with the launch of the midrange FortiGate 1800 in February and is now powering several additional FortiGate firewalls as well.

The Fast Track Network Security gateways offer more than double the performance of competing appliances, according to Check Point, and bring capabilities such as the company’s ThreatCloud threat intelligence and SandBlast zero-day protection.

Finalist: Palo Alto Networks CN-Series

The Palo Alto Networks CN-Series is a containerized version of the company’s firewall that protects inbound, outbound and east-west traffic between container trust zones along with other components of enterprise IT environments.

Finalist: Sophos XG Firewall 18

With Sophos XG Firewall 18, the company provides enhanced visibility by inspecting all encrypted traffic, making it more difficult for adversaries to hide information in varying protocols. The offering also retains high levels of performance, thanks to improvements in the way that Sophos determines whether apps and traffic need to go through its deep packet inspection engine.
