Fortinet has joined BMW I Andretti Motorsports the official partner for their Formula E team as part of Fortinet’s commitment to accelerate innovation, high performance, and energy efficiency.
The ABB FIA Formula E Championship is the world’s first racing series for fully-electric single-seater cars. These electric cars deliver immense acceleration and performance while pushing the development of e-mobility forward.
Like Formula E, Fortinet drives digital innovation through our breadth of offerings that make up the Fortinet Security Fabric.
Fortinet’s products powered by Fortinet SPUs are engineered with the same emphasis on acceleration, high performance, and energy efficiency. Given these synergies, Fortinet has partnered with the BMW I Andretti Motorsport team, marking the most significant engagement with a motorsports team in the company’s history.
Accelerating CPU Performance with Fortinet SPUs
Similar to the Formula E series, Fortinet continues to digitally innovate and set industry records for performance and speed. Fortinet SPUs outpace what is available in the market with the highest Security Computer Ratings for the following benchmarks:
Stateful Firewall throughput
IPsec VPN performance
Sessions per second
The Fortinet Family of SPUs is specially-designed security processors that provide unmatched performance at a fraction of the cost of traditional CPUs, providing accelerated network security, accelerated graphics rendering and accelerated AI in the cloud. Fortinet’s FortiGate Next-Generation Firewall appliances are powered by the following security processors:
Content Processor 9 (CP9): The CP9 protects applications while optimizing the user experience with the least performance degradation. The CP9 works as a CPU co-processor, taking on resource-intensive security functions such as SSL/TLS decryption – including TLS1.3 – IPS and antivirus.
System-on-a-Chip 4 (SoC4): Fortinet’s SoC4 is a purpose-built security processor that has achieved the highest Security Computer Ratings in the industry to support customers’ WAN Edge transformation.
SoC4 consolidates network and content processing functions on a single chip to deliver fast application identification, steering, and overlay performance.
Network Processor 6 (NP6): Fortinet’s NP6 works with FortiOS functions delivering superior firewall performance for IPV4, IPV6 and multicast traffic with ultra-low latency down to three microseconds.
