Fortinet, a leading provider of network security appliances and the worldwide leader of unified threat management (UTM) solutions - today announced that it will introduce the newest member of its FortiGate® multi-threat security appliance product family at this year's GULFCOMMS, a major ICT trade event running under the 2011 GITEX Technology Week taking place from October 9 to 13, 2011 at the Dubai International Convention and Exhibition Centre (DICEC).

The FortiGate-300C is also designed to evolve with organizations that consistently re-architect their networks for greater performance across distributed environments by integrating onboard storage for WAN optimization as well as advanced local logging and reporting capabilities.
The FortiGate-300C will be showcased at Fortinet's Stand No. Z-M1 at DICEC's Zabeel Hall. Other Fortinet products featured will include: the FortiGate-5140 chassis-based carrier-grade security system; the FortiGate-3950B enterprise-class multi-threat security appliance; the FortiWeb-1000C enterprise Web Application Firewall; the FortiMail-3000C secure messaging system; and the FortiAP-220B secure wireless thin access point appliance launched earlier this year.
