FortiSwitch Secure Access switches deliver a Secure, Simple, Scalable Ethernet solution with outstanding security, performance and manageability for threat conscious small to mid-sized businesses, distributed enterprises and branch offices. Tightly integrated into the FortiGate® Network Security Platform, the FortiSwitch Secure Access switches can be managed directly from the familiar FortiGate interface. This single pane of glass management provides complete visibility and control of all users and devices on the network, regardless of how they connect.

Single Management Framework

Reduces complexity and decreases management cost with network security functions managed through a single console via FortiGate

This integration allows all users to be authenticated against the same user database, regardless of whether they connect to the wired or wireless network, including temporary guest users.

In addition, same security policy can apply to a user or device regardless of how or where they connect to the network.

Simplify Network Deployment The Power over Ethernet (PoE) capability in some models, enables simple installation of wireless Access Points and IP phones in the network.


  • Secure Access switches suitable for wire closet and desktop installations
  • Devices are identified and users authenticated prior to being granted access to the network
  • Centralized security management and reporting from FortiGate interface
  • Up to 48 ports in a compact 1 RU form factor
  • Stackable up to 256 switches per FortiGate depending on model
  • Power over Ethernet capable, including PoE+
  • Ideal for converged network environments; enabling voice, data and wireless traffic to be delivered across a single network

FortiSwitch Deployment Example:

FortiLink Mode

The FortiSwitch Secure Access Switch series integrates directly into the FortiGate* Connected UTM, with switch administration and access port security managed from the familiar FortiGate interface. Regardless of how users and devices connect to the network, you have complete visibility and control over your network security and access through this single pane of glass, perfectly suited to threatconscious organizations of any size.
