Fortinet introduces new web security appliance

The new appliance provides application and XML firewalling to protect web applications and databases

By CBR Staff Writer

Fortinet, a provider of unified threat management services, has introduced FortiWeb-1000B, a new web security appliance that provides application and XML firewalling intended to protect, balance and accelerate web applications, databases and the information exchanged between them.

The company claims that FortiWeb appliances can reduce the deployment time and complexities associated with securing web-based applications, and can also aid companies in meeting regulatory mandates such as PCI-DSS compliance.

Together with Fortinet’s FortiDB database security product, the FortiWeb-1000B forms the basis for a broad protection schema to support the growing prevalence of cloud computing and other enterprise activities that have a need to access confidential and personal data over the internet or intranets, said Fortinet.

According to the company, the FortiWeb-1000B web security appliance is ideal for medium and large enterprises, ASPs, and software-as-a-service/cloud computing providers.

Michael Xie, chief technology officer and co-founder of Fortinet, said: The expansion of our core FortiGate network security gateways to include data and web application security appliances enables Fortinet to better provide customers a broad solution for protecting networks and applications at the core and perimeter.
