Fortinet leads the way in unified threat management.

Fortinet : 17 December, 2007  (Company News)
IDC research places Fortinet in the lead for revenue derived from the supply of Unified Threat Management products globally.
Fortinet has announced that new IDC research data confirms that for the third consecutive quarter, the company ranked No 1 in worldwide UTM factory revenue for Q3 2007, ahead of Check Point, Cisco, Crossbeam, Juniper and SonicWall. According to this data, Fortinet has also displaced Cisco as the leader in two enterprise UTM price bands ($10K-$24.9K and $25K-$49.9K). Additionally, IDC data confirmed that Fortinet saw healthy growth in both factory revenue and units shipped in a high-end UTM price band ($100K-$249.9K), which typically represents sales to large enterprises and service providers.

Data in the IDC Worldwide Quarterly Security Appliance Tracker, December 2007 confirmed:
Fortinet is the overall leader in UTM factory revenue for Q3 2007, ahead of Check Point, Cisco, Crossbeam, Juniper and SonicWall.

Fortinet is the No. 1 vendor in the two enterprise UTM price band segments ($10K-$24.9K and $25K-$49.9K) for both factory revenue and units shipped.

Fortinet grew significantly in a high-end ($100K-$249.9K) price band for both factory revenue and units shipped.

Fortinet is the overall leader in UTM factory revenue for Western Europe and Asia Pacific.

"Market adoption for UTM solutions continues to increase as all-sized businesses realise the security, operational and cost benefits of integrating critical security functions into an appliance," said Ken Xie, president, founder and CEO of Fortinet. "As evidenced by the latest IDC data, the enterprise UTM price band segment in particular witnessed significant growth in Q3, and Fortinet's share of this market grew as well. This shows that enterprises are recognising the need for a truly integrated UTM solution to secure both their core networks and their remote offices, and are increasingly turning to Fortinet for their solution."

IDC defines UTM security appliance products as those that integrate multiple security features within one device, including network firewalling, network intrusion detection and prevention (IDP), and gateway anti-virus. Fortinet takes UTM further through its family of award-winning FortiGate multi-threat security systems that integrate eight essential security applications and services -- including firewall, antivirus, virtual private network (VPN), intrusion prevention (IPS), anti-spam, Web content filtering and traffic shaping - that can be deployed individually, or combined as a UTM solution.
