Bypass Modules
Hardware Bypass Options for FortiGate® Multi-Threat Security Systems IT administrators are faced with the challenge of securing a network while also ensuring that the network is always available. For critical network segments, this could mean that network availability is valued over ensuring that all traffic is inspected for malicious activity. High availability solutions, where a system fails over to either an active or standby unit, can reduce the risk of a network outage while still providing security services. To further reduce the risk of a network outage due to a power failure or a security device malfunction, bypassing the device altogether with a fail-to-wire solution can ensure network continuity at times when security cannot be provided. Fortinet ASM-CX4 and ASM-FX2 modules provide bypass functionality to FortiGate multi-threat security systems equipped with an available single-width Advanced Mezzanine Card (AMC) expansion bay. The ASM-CX4 is a single-width AMC module which provides four (4) 10/100/1000 copper (RJ-45) Ethernet interfaces for two protected segments of network traffic. The ASM-FX2 is a single-width AMC module which provides two (2) gigabit fiber (LC, 850nm) Ethernet interfaces for a single protected segment of network traffic. Operating in transparent mode during normal operation, both modules automatically bridge network traffic in the event of a system failure or power outage to ensure mission-critical network continuity.
Security Processing Modules
Fortinet ADM-XE2 and ASM-CE4 security processing modules provide multi-gigabit throughput increases for intrusion prevention, firewall, and IP multicast applications. Both models are based on the carrier-class Advanced Mezzanine Card™ (AMC) specification used in enterprise-class FortiGate multi-threat security platforms. The ADM-XE2 is a dual-width AMC module for 10-Gigabit Ethernet networks. The ASM-CE4 is a single-width AMC module for 10/100/1000 Ethernet networks. Fortinet security processing modules work to increase overall system performance by offloading select security applications and network processing functions from the FortiGate host system while maintaining all the benefits of a unified security platform.
Storage Modules
FORTINET STORAGE MODULES Storage Options for FortiGate® Multi-Threat Security Systems Fortinet storage modules extend the capabilities of FortiGate multi-threat security systems by enabling local storage for system and security event logging. The modules also enable the WAN optimization feature found in FortiOS 4.0 software, which works to accelerate applications commonly affected by slower network connections. The ASM-SAS module is a single-width AdvancedMC™ (AMC) form-factor option that enables external Serial Attached SCSI (SAS) or Serial ATA (SATA) storage systems to work seamlessly with supported FortiGate platforms. The ASM-SAS module features two (2) external IB-SAS connectors that provide four (4) ports per connector. The ASM-S08 module is a single-width AMC form-factor option that adds all-in-one internal storage to supported FortiGate platforms. The ASM-S08 features a 80GB commercial-grade hard disk drive.
WAN Modules
T1/E1 WAN Connectivity for FortiGate® Multi-Threat Security Systems The Fortinet ASM-ET4 WAN Module adds up to four (4) full rate T1/E1 wide area network connections to FortiGate-310B and FortiGate-620B multi-threat security appliances. The single width Advanced Mezzanine Card (AMC) module includes four (4) RJ-48C interfaces, fully integrated internal CSU/DSU hardware, complete integration with FortiGate security inspection hardware, and local/remote configuration and monitoring via FortiOS™ Web-based and command-line interfaces. The features of the ASM-ET4 allow for the deployment and monitoring of multiple T1 or E1 circuits from anywhere and at any time - all while maintaining the reduced physical space and power requirement benefits of a single appliance deployment.
