Next-Generation Unified Threat Management Solution from Fortinet

18th December 2014


According to a recent government survey organisations of all sizes continue to suffer from external cyber-attacks, with over 60% of smaller businesses reporting a security breach in the last year alone. To address this challenge, IT specialist Blue Chip have teamed up with security experts Fortinet to show businesses how they can improve security, making it tighter and faster, whilst  lowering overall costs via a world leading Unified Threat Management (UTM) solution.

Anthony Green, Sales and Marketing Director at Blue Chip said: “Partnering with security experts, Fortinet, we are offering businesses a free, no obligation consultation to inform them of the Enterprise-level options they have to combat these threats, whilst also dramatically reducing management time as well as costs.”

Covering the consolidation of antivirus, anti-spam, IPS, Firewall, web filtering, application control VPN and WAN acceleration services, businesses will benefit from a comprehensive and valuable insight into the next generation of security measures open to them via the award-winning FortiGate appliance.

It offers a broad set of integrated, high-quality security functions designed to avoid the shortcomings of traditionally fragmented security-point product infrastructure, and introduces a deeper level of inspection for greater visibility over network traffic.  Crucially, since Fortinet’s Next Generation Firewalls (NGFWs) deliver five times faster Next Generation Performance, more security functions can be run on the same unit at the same time for increased protection against Advanced Threats.  The result is previously unseen performance and control.

Green adds: “Fortinet is offering Enterprise-level security to SMEs through its new midrange of FortiGate-300D and 500D models, which consolidate devices to save time and money.”

Businesses recognising the need to find out more about state-of-the-art protection for their IT systems against increasingly sophisticated internet threats can contact Blue Chip to arrange a private consultation on security consolidation.  To find out more or to book an appointment, contact us at or call 0845 034 7222.
