Fortinet maintains enterprise UTM lead

Fortinet : 09 January, 2009  (Company News)
IDC research data shows Fortinet maintaining lead in enterprise level unified threat management market
Fortinet has announced that new IDC research data confirms that the company has maintained its No 1 ranking in worldwide UTM factory revenue for Q3 2008. Based on strong sales and increased enterprise adoption of the company's new generation secure gateways, Fortinet continues to lead the UTM market ahead of Check Point, Cisco, Crossbeam, Juniper, SonicWALL and others.

Data in the latest IDC Worldwide Quarterly Security Appliance Tracker, December 2008 confirmed:

* Fortinet is the overall leader in UTM factory revenue for Q3 2008, ahead of Check Point, Cisco, Crossbeam, Juniper, SonicWALL and others.

* Fortinet is the No 1 vendor in the enterprise UTM ($25K-$49.9K) price band segments for both factory revenue and units shipped.

* Fortinet is the overall leader in UTM factory revenue for Western Europe for Q3 2008.

"Current economic conditions are forcing companies to more closely analyse the value and ROI of every expenditure, and leading more and more to realize the significant cost, security and scalability benefits that can be achieved from the integrated, unified approach that Fortinet helped pioneer," said Ken Xie, president, founder and CEO of Fortinet. "We are very pleased to have yet again earned - and further proven - our UTM market leadership, validating that enterprises are turning to Fortinet more than any other UTM vendor for their multiple security requirements."

According to IDC, UTM security appliance products include multiple security features integrated into one device. To be included in this category, as opposed to other Threat Management appliance segments, UTM appliances must contain the ability to perform network firewalling, network intrusion detection and prevention, and gateway antivirus. All of the capabilities need not be utilised, but the functions must exist inherently in the appliance. In addition to the mandatory applications, UTM appliances may also host other security or networking features.

Delivered via its flagship family of FortiGate new generation security gateways, Fortinet provides a flexible platform that enables enterprises and service providers of all sizes to consolidate critical security technology and services to maximise network protection and reduce total cost of ownership. These ASIC-accelerated security appliances integrate essential security applications and services, including antivirus, firewall, VPN, intrusion prevention, Web filtering, anti-spam and traffic shaping. All FortiGate systems are kept up to date by Fortinet's FortiGuard Network, which provides regular updates that help ensure protection against the most damaging, content-based threats from email and Web traffic such as viruses, worms, intrusions, other unwanted network traffic - around the clock and around the world. FortiGate appliances are complemented by an array of messaging, management and analysis systems and end-point security solutions.
