Messaging Security Appliance Earns Comparative VBSpam Certification Based on High Spam Catch Rate and Zero False Positives
July 19, 2010 - 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 seventh Virus Bulletin certification in the VBSpam Awards.
Virus Bulletin staff tested FortiMail along with 23 other anti-spam products – its largest test to date – for spam catch rates and false positive rates. The Virus Bulletin Report noted that the FortiMail appliance achieved the award in part due to no false positives occurring during the test. According to the report, Fortinet customers “can be confident that there is little chance of legitimate mail being blocked.”
“The FortiMail messaging security appliance family was built from the ground-up to help to ensure our customers a clean, spam- and virus-free email experience,” said Patrick Bedwell, vice president of product marketing at Fortinet. “This seventh consecutive VBSpam award further proves our dedication to providing a strong anti-spam solution coupled with very high throughput to help avoid the bogging down of networks of all sizes. We are quite pleased about this win.”
