The FortiGate-300C multi-threat security appliance delivers proven, consolidated security at switching speeds. Its enterprise-grade performance and no per-user pricing make it ideal for mid-sized organizations and branch office locations of large enterprises. The highly versatile FortiGate-300C features one of the highest port densities and price/performance ratios of any product in its class to deliver advanced firewall, VPN, application control and intrusion prevention system functionality in a single appliance.

The FortiGate-300C appliance integrates two purpose-built security processing ASICs to provide the high-performance protection you need in your network. The FortiASIC network processor provides acceleration for firewall, VPN and heuristic packet scanning. The FortiASIC content processor provides additional acceleration for content intensive security technologies such as application control, intrusion prevention and antivirus scanning. The FortiGate-300C appliance's eight hardware-accelerated interfaces and additional two non-accelerated WAN ports enable you to enforce policies between network segmentation points for increased security, while preserving switch-like performance. The appliance's included storage provides localized event logging, content archiving, or WAN optimization. The FortiGate-300C appliance enables you to create multiple security zones for various departments, users, access methods and devices, to enforce your critical network security at accelerated speeds.

Product Reviews
Fortinet FortiGate 300C - security appliance 3.8 5 31 31
These things are great for small biz or branch offices. My former company used these, exclusively, to upgrade older FortiGate devices or replace consumer level firewalls / routers. Full featured UTM firewall, Dual WAN ports, a DMZ port and 5 switch ports with plenty of throughput for their purpose. July 20, 2012
I've been very pleased with this firewall. We have 4 branch offices connected via MPLS with all outgoing traffic directed through our data center. The firewall was placed at the data center to protect our network. It has been doing an outstanding job. Since the unit was powered on it has *never* been rebooted and has been running flawlessly ever since.I've found it doesn't track certain types of traffic (i.e., instant messages, voip) that it has statistic counters for, but other than that it's done everything we've needed it to. June 19, 2012
Full featured UTM, sized for a typical small or branch office 1-50 users. Dual WAN ports, a DMZ port and 5 switch ports. June 1, 2012
I never had any issues with these products when I was using them. Blocked what I told them to, connected my remote sites. If I remember correctly, they were a little pricey. May 24, 2012
All in all this device is an absolute life saver. It does everything you could ever ask, for a fraction of the cost of a Cisco, with excellent support. April 19, 2012
I have never had any problems with my 100A. Tech support has always been available and extremely helpful. April 2, 2012
really needs a new GUI. I find it very cumbersome February 4, 2012
Good product. Easily connected small offices to the 80C with Cisco pix. Tech support is alright, mostly done thru email but stayed on top of my issues. Offers many easy to configure options. January 3, 2012
