SUNNYVALE, Calif., July 3, 2012 - Fortinet® (NASDAQ: FTNT) – a world leader in high-performance network security - today announced that new IDC Tracker research data positions Fortinet as the number one vendor in worldwide UTM factory revenue for Q1 2012, published on June 29, 2012. This data marks the 25th consecutive quarter Fortinet has maintained its leadership position.
"Fortinet continues to win in the market, the numbers don’t lie,” said Ken Xie, founder, president and CEO of Fortinet. "Our leadership across five different UTM price bands and continued growth in the overall security appliance market shows that we continue to deliver quality products to customers of all sizes.”
By definition, UTM security appliance products include multiple security features integrated into one device including the emerging next-generation firewall, and next-generation IPS segments. In the first quarter, Fortinet extended its overall market share as measured by revenue for UTM and achieved leadership in total units shipped in several countries. This is important to note as IDC cites UTM as one of the leading growth drivers for network security – a market IDC predicts will be worth $10.1B by 2016.
Fortinet's FortiGate® appliances are consolidating security functionality across wired and wireless architectures in enterprises, managed security service providers (MSSPs) and telecommunications carriers for higher performance and a lower total cost of ownership. Custom FortiASIC-accelerated security technology greatly improves the performance of the appliance’s integrated UTM features, including antivirus, firewall, VPN, intrusion prevention, as well as many other security and networking functions, such as Web filtering, anti-spam, WAN optimization, and data leakage prevention (DLP). FortiGate systems help provide security protection through updates by Fortinet's FortiGuard® Network, to help guard against the most damaging threats, such as viruses, worms, advanced intrusions and other unwanted network traffic - around the clock and around the world. FortiGate appliances are integrated with a broad security ecosystem product offering, including messaging, Web application firewall, database security, management and analysis systems and end-point security solutions. FortiGate appliances also contain a wireless controller so that wired and wireless infrastructures are simply implemented and more secure with one security platform. The entire security environment can be easily managed and reported through enterprise scale FortiManager and ForiAnalyzer for a single pane of glass policy and visualization.
