  1. Do you have the available options for Fortigate 2000E or 2500E?

    • Michael,

      The 2000E and 2500E do not have options like the 6040E due to it being a single unit (not a chassis unit like the 6040E). I have managed to find the following video though that covers some of it’s hardware and specifications.FortiGate 2000E Series Firewalls. I will be making a post about every available FortiGate in the next week that will cover data sheet on each and suggested recommendations for deployment.
