Messaging Security Appliance Earns Comparative VBSpam Certification Based on High Performance and Aggressive Catch Rate.
Fortinet - a leading network security provider and a worldwide leader of unified threat management (UTM) solutions – today announced the company’s FortiMail™ messaging security appliance has been awarded its eighth Virus Bulletin certification in the VBSpam Awards.
Virus Bulletin staff tested FortiMail along with 19 other anti-spam products for spam catch rates and false positive rates, and also tested these products to provide a measure of performance that would be relevant to any organization.
The Virus Bulletin Report noted that the FortiMail appliance achieved the award in part due to competitively low false positives occurring during the test. According to the report, FortiMail catches spam “with a nicely improved performance, demonstrating that the product’s developers are keeping up with the latest spam campaigns.”
“We are very pleased to have won our eighth consecutive VBSpam certification in as many attempts,” said Patrick Bedwell, vice president of product marketing at Fortinet. “With this certification, we continue to demonstrate our commitment to providing high quality messaging security solutions for businesses of all sizes.”

Purpose-built for the most demanding messaging systems, the FortiMail appliances utilize Fortinet's years of experience in protecting networks against spam, malware, and other message-borne threats.
