Content Processor

Fortinet’s ninth generation custom SPU CP9 content processor works outside of the direct flow of traffic and accelerates the inspection.

Powered by SPU

  • Fortinet’s custom SPU 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 SPU NP7 network processor works inline with FortiOS functions delivering:

  • Superior firewall performance for IPv4/IPv6, SCTP and multicast traffic with ultra-low latency
  • VPN, CAPWAP, and IP tunnel acceleration
  • Anomaly-based intrusion prevention, checksum offload, and packet defragmentation
  • Traffic shaping and priority queuing

Trusted Platform Module (TPM)

The FortiGate 7121F Series features a dedicated module that hardens physical networking appliances by generating, storing, and authenticating cryptographic keys. Hardware-based security mechanisms protect against malicious software and phishing attacks.
