SUNNYVALE, Calif., Oct 11, 2013 - Fortinet (NASDAQ: FTNT) - a global leader in high-performance network security - today announced that its flagship FortiGate network security platform has won four Readers' Choice awards from Computerworld Singapore and Computerworld Malaysia. Fortinet triumphed in the categories of unified threat management (UTM) and intrusion detection/prevention systems (IDS/IPS) in Singapore and in IDS/IPS and Enterprise Firewall & VPN in Malaysia.
This is the fifth consecutive year that Fortinet has clinched Readers' Choice awards in Singapore, and the third 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 Le Meridien on October 4 and October 9, respectively.
"Fortinet's multi-category wins highlight the vendor's acceptance across all key segments of the network security industry. Clearly, the firm's investment and efforts in staying ahead of its competition and the fast changing security landscape have paid off," said Computerworld Singapore editor Jack Loo.
Computerworld Malaysia editor AvantiKumar added, "The firewall makes up the security backbone of the modern enterprise. Fortinet's dominance in this category suggests that the vendor forms the bedrock of many Malaysian businesses today."
