Malaysia and Singapore, Oct 5, 2012 ? Fortinet® (NASDAQ: FTNT) ? a world leader in high-performance network security ? today announced that its flagship FortiGate® integrated multi-threat security appliance family has won four Readers’ Choice awards from Computerworld Singapore and Computerworld Malaysia. Fortinet clinched awards in the categories of unified threat management (UTM) and intrusion detection/prevention systems (IDS/IPS) in both countries.
This is the fourth consecutive year that Fortinet has claimed Readers' Choice awards in Singapore, and the second consecutive year the company has won in Malaysia.
Computerworld's Readers' Choice awards are presented to vendors that garner the most votes from end-users that pick their favorite products in a number of predetermined categories, and represent one of the strongest endorsements by IT professionals. This year’s award ceremonies were held at Singapore's Raffles Hotel and Kuala Lumpur's Sheraton Imperial on Oct 4 and Sept 25, respectively.
"Fortinet is a well established brand in the network security market and this comes across clearly in the number of votes it picked up. The vendor's victory this year must be especially sweet, with it extending its dominance beyond its traditional UTM stronghold to the IDS/IPS space," said Computerworld Singapore editor Jack Loo.
Computerworld Malaysia editor AvantiKumar added: "This is the second year in a row that Fortinet has won both awards in Malaysia. This consistent achievement speaks well of their product range's ability to help organisations here meet their business objectives."
These awards add to the strong recognition Fortinet has already received for its UTM and IDS/IPS products. This January, BreakingPoint tests show that the FortiGate-5140B is the world's fastest firewall, and in August, Fortinet received the "Recommended" rating from NSS Labs following a comprehensive network intrusion prevention test.
FortiGate consolidated security platforms deliver unmatched performance and protection while simplifying your network. Fortinet offers models to satisfy any deployment requirement from the FortiGate-20 series for small offices to the FortiGate-5000 series for very large enterprises, service providers and carriers. FortiGate platforms combine the FortiOS™ security operating system with FortiASIC processors and latest-generation CPUs to other hardware to provide a comprehensive, high-performance security solution to meet most business needs.
"Winning four awards at a go is a record and underscores the unprecedented growth Fortinet is seeing in terms of company size and product range," said George Chang, Fortinet's regional director for Southeast Asia and Hong Kong.
