High Performance Data Center Firewall

Fortinet FortiGate 3700D-DC-NEBS

Sorry, this product is no longer available. Please contact us for a replacement.


The FortiGate 3700D high performance, high capacity data center firewall provides exceptional performance of 160 Gbps and ultra-low latency, ensuring your data center security solution doesn’t become your data center bottleneck.

Eliminate Security Bottlenecks

It delivers this breakthrough performance and protection in a compact 3U form factor with four 40 GE and 28 10 GE interfaces that preserves scarce rack space while maximizing capacity. Powered by the new FortiASIC NP6 processor, the FortiGate 3700D is the first data center appliance to deliver performance parity for IPv4 and IPv6 traffic and dramatically increases VPN performance, enabling you to keep pace with your evolving network.

Flexible Deployment

The FortiGate 3700D gives you the flexibility to choose the firewall personality that best fits your requirements at the Edge or Core. You can take advantage of the high port density for physical segmentation of your network, as well as the virtual domains (VDOMs) for virtual segmentation.

Performance and Reliability for High Bandwidth Networks

  • Breakthrough IPv4 to IPv6 firewall performance parity
  • Flexible firewall personalities enable deployment at the Edge or Core
  • Compact 3U footprint conserves rack space and minimizes energy consumption
  • Freedom to add integrated security technologies (such as IPS, App Control, VPN)
  • Cloud-ready multi-tenant support and APIs for rapid orchestration
  • FortiOS 5 delivers the most complete, battle-tested set of security functions to protect your network and data

Powered by FortiASICs

  • Custom FortiASIC 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
  • FortiASIC processors pr ovide 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 FortiASIC NP6 network processor works inline with FortiOS functions delivering:

  • Superior firewall performance for IPv4/IPv6, SCTP and multicast traf fic with ultra-low latency down to 3 microseconds
  • VPN, CAPWAP and IP tunnel acceleration
  • Anomaly-based intrusion prevention, checksum of fload and packet defragmentation
  • Traf fic shaping and priority queuing

Content Processor

The FortiASIC CP8 content processor works outside of the direct flow of traffic, providing high-speed cryptography and content inspection services including:

  • Signature-based content inspection acceleration
  • Encryption and decryption offloading

40 GE Connectivity for Core Infrastructure

High speed connectivity is essential for network security segmentation at the core of data networks. The FortiGate 3700D provides one of the highest 40 GE and 10 GE port densities in the market, simplifying network designs without relying on additional devices to bridge desired connectivity.
