Krypt offers dedicated hardware appliance firewalls from Fortinet with ranging performance and features. The FortiGate firewall can be utilized to protect numerous Krypt Dedicated Servers in your account. We typically deploy the FortiGate firewall in transparent mode and it will drop bad connections as they come in. The FortiGate can also be deployed in traditional NAT deployment where the public IP’s are bound to the external interface of the FortiGate firewall and the servers have internal IP addresses. This offers the best protection and minimizes your servers exposure to the public Internet. We also offer an additional UTM (Unified Threat Management) license upgrade which enables Next Generation Firewall (NGFW) feature sets such as Anti-Virus, Anti-Spam, Intrusion Prevention (IPS).
|Firewall Performance (Gbps)||2.5||2.5|
|Concurrent Sessions||1.8 million||3 million|
|UTM/NGFW Throughput (Mbps)||160||200|
|IPSec Client and Site to Site VPN||Yes||Yes|
|Maximum number of Dedicated Servers||3||10|
|Basic Firewall (Non UTM/NGFW) Price per month||$100||$250|
|Advanced Firewall (with UTM/NGFW) Price Per Month||$150||$450|
