Fortinet retains top position in UTM market.

Fortinet : 14 June, 2007  (Company News)
Fortinet outsells its competitors in Unified Threat Management solutions, retaining its leadership position.
Fortinet has announced that new IDC research data confirms that the company ranked No 1 for worldwide UTM revenue for Q1 2007, ahead of Check Point, Cisco, Crossbeam, Juniper and SonicWall. Additionally, IDC data confirmed that Fortinet experienced significant quarter over quarter growth in both factory revenue and units shipped in a key enterprise UTM price band segment, further acquiring market share from its competitors.

Data in IDC's Worldwide Quarterly Security Appliance Tracker, Q1 2007 indicated:.

* Fortinet is the overall leader in UTM factory revenue for Q1 2007, ahead of Check Point, Cisco, Crossbeam, Juniper and SonicWall.
* Fortinet is the No 1 vendor in the enterprise UTM ($25K-$49K) price band segment for both factory revenue and units shipped.

"The growing UTM market is being driven by the need for comprehensive security that can scale to accommodate a wide array of threats and can be cost-effectively managed and maintained," said Ken Xie, founder and CEO of Fortinet. "IDC's latest research confirms Fortinet's leading position in the worldwide UTM market as well as our growing foothold in the enterprise market—a result of the fact that enterprises and service providers of all sizes continue to recognize the benefits of our high-performance, scalable FortiGate multi-threat security systems."

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 FortiGateâ„¢ 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.
