      Hughes Network Systems announced the addition of the Fortinet FortiGate 30E to its portfolio of managed network equipment. According to Hughes, the FortiGate 30E is a solution geared toward financial, retail petroleum, convenience store, and restaurant businesses seeking an integrated and secure single-device broadband solution at their retail locations.

      The FortiGate 30E is available as part of the HughesOn suite of managed network services, which combine broadband connectivity, installation, provisioning, and on-site support. It can also be self-installed for those merchants who prefer to implement and maintain their own equipment, using internet service from a local provider.

      The FortiGate 30E is an all-in-one enterprise platform that is part of the Fortinet Security Fabric, receiving real-time threat intelligence updates to ensure continuous protection from cyber threats. In a statement, Hughes said the FortiGate 30E is ideally suited to serve distributed enterprises and supports integrated 4G/LTE modems for unified connectivity and wireless backup; Internet Protocol Security (IPsec) Virtual Private Network (VPN) over the internet to enable managed PCI-compliant networks; and plug-and-play capability.
