Frost & Sullivan Recognizes Fortinet with “Market Share Leadership Award, Unified Threat Management, North America, 2013”
SUNNYVALE, Calif. -- April 19, 2013 -- Fortinet® (NASDAQ: FTNT) - a world leader in high-performance network security – today announced that it received the “Market Share Leadership Award, Unified Threat Management, North America” for 2013 by Frost & Sullivan, a leading global industry analyst organization.
The Frost and Sullivan Award for Market Share Leadership is presented to the company that demonstrates excellence in capturing the highest market share within its industry. This award recognizes the company’s leadership position within the Unified Threat Management (UTM) market.
“Unified Threat Management Appliances protect thousands of business networks around the world, by integrating Firewall, VPN, Intrusion Prevention, Application Control, Web Filtering, Antivirus and Granular User Controls,” said John Maddison, VP of Marketing at Fortinet. “Fortinet leads this market because no other vendor delivers as fast and secure of a UTM solution.”
Frost & Sullivan points out that because UTMs integrate security technologies, they provide businesses with operational efficiencies, too. Fortinet concurs, as many customers cite superior TCO, single pane of glass management and end-to-end wired and wireless policy enforcement as key reasons of adopting their FortiGate appliances.
“Fortinet earned 20.5 percent of the UTM market in 2012, leading the UTM market for the fifth consecutive year that Frost & Sullivan has tracked this market,” said Chris Rodriguez, Senior Industry Analyst, Frost & Sullivan. “This success is the result of an aggressive product development strategy and strategic business partnerships driven by a singular focus on customer needs. With many new products and features on the company’s roadmap, Fortinet is well positioned to grow its share of the market further in 2013.”
