AV Throughput Removed From DataSheets

So, I am sure some of you have been running around a little bit like chickens with your heads cut off about that fact that the data sheets no longer list the AV throughput. Don’t worry, this is by design. They are switching to NGFW values for these to compete with Palo Alto and the likes in the NGFW market. Don’t worry, AV throughput is about to be useless anyways as 5.4 comes more mainstream. the 5.4 code is SO MUCH better on speed and reliability that even if they kept the AV numbers they would have to retest the hardware to get new numbers.

Official Fortinet Response:

“The Proxy AV specification will no longer be presented and removed from all existing FortiGate data sheet starting from 15th January 2016. An archive of old data sheets will be available. We’ll be replacing these specifics with more widely used NGFW values. The new data sheet should be out 28th January and Product Matrix updated in February Edition.”
