The network security vendor is one of Asian enterprises' most vital ICT partners, says industry panel.
SINGAPORE, December 7, 2012 - Fortinet® (NASDAQ: FTNT) ? a world leader in high-performance network security ? today announced that it has won a Strategic 100 award from respected pan-Asia end-user IT publication MIS Asia.
The panel of judges comprising technology practitioners, academicians and consultants named Fortinet as one the 100 ICT companies worldwide that are most important to public and private organisations in Asia based on five criteria: its display of industry leadership, the products and services innovation it introduced, the strategic roles it played in the global enterprise ICT industry, its contribution to overall ICT development, and its financial performance. The award ceremony was held in Singapore on December 5.
Said Teng Fang Yih, Editor of MIS Asia: "Fortinet consistently emerged near the top of the pack in each of these criteria. The success of the company's products with customers, its technological contribution to the industry, as well as market leading financial performance were exemplary and won over our judges."
A benchmarking tool for IT decision-makers across Asia, the MIS Strategic 100 index is divided into three categories: Global 75 (for those with a global footprint), Regional 20 (for those who dominate in Asia) and Rising Stars (for the five fairly young companies that are driving major technology developments and deployment trends). Fortinet, which has 125,000 customers in almost every country in the world, is a winner in the Global 75 category.
Patrice Perche, Fortinet's Senior Vice President for International Sales & Support, said: "The MIS Strategic 100 award adds to our list of accomplishments this year and is further proof that Fortinet is executing well across multiple fronts. Security is a vital pillar in the business transformation process and we aim to help more Asian enterprises leverage it strategically and intelligently in the new year."
