Fortinet continuously receives more third-party certifications and validation tests than any other security vendor

SUNNYVALE, Calif., December 7, 2015 — Fortinet® (NASDAQ: FTNT), the global leader in high-performance cybersecurity solutions, today announced a series of new achievements in third-party certification and validation tests across multiple Fortinet solutions. Fortinet FortiMail, FortiClient, and Web Content Filtering received recognition for high performance in independent tests measuring spam detection rates, anti-phishing effectiveness and virus protection.

“Earning these distinctions demonstrates the reliability, efficacy and value of our solutions, and also highlights our commitment to ensure we have the best products to help organizations protect their most valuable assets,” said Ken Xie, founder, chairman of the board and chief executive officer at Fortinet. “With today’s complex and ever-increasing cyber threats, businesses want to know that the vendors and solutions they choose can deliver on the promises they make. Third-party validation provides our customers with an independent, objective measure by which to judge security solutions in this highly competitive environment.”

  • Fortinet FortiMail achieved a VBSpam+ award from Virus Bulletin for the November 2015 comparative, ranking second in spam detection with a final score of 99.98. This is Fortinet’s seventh VBSpam+ award, an industry-recognized standard for anti-spam testing and certification.
  • For the August 2015 Anti-Phishing Test by AV-Comparatives, Fortinet Web Content Filtering with FortiClient received an Advanced+ rating, the highest rating for the anti-phishing test.
  • In another test from Virus Bulletin, the VB100, an independent comparative testing of anti-virus products, Fortinet FortiClient scored high marks and strong competitive ranking in the Reactive and Proactive (RAP) average over October 2014 to April 2015. This test measures the chances new malware will be detected by the current signature as well as the detection of one- to three week- old malware.

These latest achievements further establish Fortinet’s dedication and commitment to submit their broad portfolio of cybersecurity solutions to the most rigorous testing and evaluation in an effort to arm businesses with the independent research they need to properly evaluate solutions that can deliver the security performance they need. Fortinet solutions consistently demonstrated superior security effectiveness, advanced features and superior performance when put to the test, yielding numerous accolades throughout 2015:

The insights and results from independent testing help Fortinet ensure that it continually delivers the best in security functionality, performance and value to its customers. As a result, Fortinet has received more third-party competitive and performance-based product recommendations from research and testing labs than any other network security vendor.
