Dec 20 2019 – Crank It Up.
A three campus college in Scotland have this week announce that GISS has won their complex tender for their firewall upgrade. The new Fortigate-500E firewall cluster to be deployed supports the 2 x 10Gb connections required for new college infrastructure. The FortiGate 500E firewalls are incredibly fast. The secret is Fortinet’s purpose-built CP9 content processor and parallel path processing that significantly outmatch competing products that are based on off-the-shelf components, to deliver best-in-class threat protection and SSL inspection performance. It also includes innovative collaborative learning capabilities, giving it the ability to share information and workloads with other security devices and systems in the same network, while also remaining visible and manageable through a single pane-of-glass for communications and control. This enables organizations to detect and block malevolent content before it can attach itself to vulnerable assets.

Nov 01 2019 – Network Jitters?
Got the Jitter Bug? Want to lower your latency? Scared you'll lose a packet? Then SD-WAN (or Software-Defined Wide Area Networking) that is integrated as standard in Fortigate firewalls is for you. Have two WAN links to use for internet access? Fortigate's SD-WAN will analyse jitter, latency and packet loss and make decisions on how best to use your two links to optimise service. This week a historic school on the south coast have been migrating its firewalls to SD-WAN - and that has resulted in significant improvemnet in overall WAN performance.
