Fortinet continues to lead UTM market worldwide.

Fortinet : 17 March, 2008  (Company News)
New IDC research data confirms that Fortinet is ranked No. 1 in worldwide UTM factory revenue for 2007, fuelled by significant large enterprise, MSSP and carrier adoption of its high-end FortiGate network security appliances.
The IDC data makes Fortinet the global UTM factory revenue leader for two consecutive years ahead of Check Point, Cisco, Crossbeam, Juniper and SonicWALL.

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

* Fortinet is the overall leader in UTM factory revenue for all of 2007 and Q4 2007, ahead of Check Point, Cisco, Crossbeam, Juniper and SonicWALL

* Fortinet is the No 1 vendor in the high-end ($50,000 to $99,900) price band for both factory revenue and units shipped

* Fortinet is the No 1 vendor in the two enterprise UTM price band segments ($10, 000 to $24,900 and $25,000 to $49,900) for both factory revenue and units shipped

* Fortinet is the overall leader in UTM factory revenue for Western Europe and Asia Pacific for all of 2007 and Q4 2007

"As the latest IDC data shows, Fortinet maintained our UTM market lead and grew our position in the overall network security appliance market in 2007 - validating the increased market adoption of Fortinet solutions," said Ken Xie, president, founder and CEO of Fortinet. "Enterprises and service provider customers of all sizes are realising the unique benefits of Fortinet's highly flexible and scalable platform, which allows for network security consolidation to meet a wide array of varied requirements and reduce overall total cost of ownership."

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 appliances, 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 anti-virus, firewall, VPN, intrusion prevention, Web filtering, anti-spam and traffic shaping.

All FortiGate systems are kept up to date automatically by Fortinet's FortiGuard Network, which provides continuous 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.
