According to Industry Research Data, Fortinet Sees 16.6 Percent Q1 Year-over-Year Growth; Largest Growth Among the Top Five Network Security Vendors.
SUNNYVALE, Calif. -- June 26, 2013 -- Fortinet® (NASDAQ: FTNT) – According to the recently released International Data Corporation (IDC) Worldwide Quarterly Security Appliance Tracker*, Fortinet, a world leader in high performance network security solutions, held the position of having the largest year-over-year revenue growth (16.6 percent) among the top five network security appliance vendors.
“As a trend, what really stands out from the IDC data is the continual decline of the big, traditional network infrastructure vendors,” said John Maddison, vice president of marketing, Fortinet. “By contrast, network security vendors, such as Fortinet, continue to see strong demand as enterprises move toward high-performance network security solutions that offer state of the art threat protection capabilities at prices that make sense.”
FortiGate – The Ultimate Network Security Platform
Central to Fortinet’s growth is the FortiGate Network Security Platform, which delivers unmatched performance and protection. Designed for flexibility, scale and performance, the FortiGate platform ranges from the small footprint, FortiGate-20 series for small offices and retail networks, to the chassis-based FortiGate-5000 series for large enterprises, service providers, data centers and carriers.
Additionally, FortiGate configuration options include NGFW (firewall, intrusion prevention and application control); ATP (includes advanced threat protection and endpoint control); WF (includes Web filtering and explicit proxy); NGFW + ATA (includes NGFW and ATP features) and UTM (includes all previously mentioned features plus email filtering, data loss prevention, vulnerability scanning).
Furthermore, no other vendor offers a complete network security portfolio with as many independent 3rd party certifications, including: NSS Labs, ICSA Labs, Common Criteria, Virus Bulletin and FIPS.
Maddison concludes, “The network security appliance market is really coming down to two camps – those vendors that have a command of threat research and know-how, and those who view security as an add-on. Ostensibly, the market prefers the former.”
