The FortiGate-S series are the first access points of their kind to have a Next Generation Firewall built in. Unlike any other access points on the market, they are equipped with extra memory and a powerful dual-core processor. This enables them to perform real-time security processing on the AP, providing complete protection against all manner of Wi-Fi and cyber-threats at the network edge. With Fortinet's award winning security technology embedded in the AP, the FortiAP-S series provides the most compact solution for complete content and application security in a Wi-Fi architecture.

The FortiAP-S series access points are designed for deployment in branch and distributed enterprise remote sites. They are managed through the FortiCloud provisioning and management portal or the FortiGate management console. The S-series eliminate CAPEX and complexity of deploying WLAN controllers and management servers, making deployment faster and scalable and giving the customer the flexibility to deploy a wireless solution that best fits their network.
