SUNNYVALE, Calif., – October 24, 2011 ? Fortinet® (NASDAQ: FTNT) ? a leading network security provider and worldwide leader of unified threat management (UTM) solutions ? today announced that its flagship FortiGate® integrated multi-threat security appliance family has won three Readers’ Choice awards from Computerworld Singapore and Computerworld Malaysia. In Singapore, Fortinet clinched the 16th annual Readers' Choice Award in the category of UTM security, and in Malaysia, the company won the 10th annual Readers' Choice Award in the categories of UTM and Intrusion Detection/Prevention Systems.
This is the third consecutive year that Fortinet has claimed the Readers' Choice Award for UTM in Singapore and the first time the company has won in Malaysia since its last win in 2008.
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. The awards represent a strong endorsement by the Singapore and Malaysia markets. This year’s award ceremonies were held at Singapore's Raffles Hotel and Kuala Lumpur's Mandarin Oriental Hotel on Oct 21 and Oct 11, respectively.
“Fortinet is a well-established brand in the UTM market, and this comes across clearly in the number of votes picked up by the company,” said Computerworld Singapore editor Jack Loo. “Functionality, performance and reliability are typical criteria used by our voters so Fortinet must have fared well in these areas, too."
"It's no mean feat to pick up two major awards at one go,” said Computerworld Malaysia editor Avanti Kumar. “That Fortinet managed to do so speaks well of its technology, as well as the reputation and mindshare it has in the Malaysian market."
