Execution of Enterprise Firewall Strategy and Fortinet's Security Fabric Solutions Evaluated in the Latest Gartner Report

Dubai, UAE, July 16, 2017: Fortinet® (NASDAQ: FTNT), the global leader in high-performance cybersecurity solutions, today announced it has been recognized as a Leader in the 2017 Gartner Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Network Firewalls1. The report evaluated Fortinet's Security Fabric, its ‘completeness of vision' and ‘ability to execute' as factors for the placement in the Magic Quadrant. As a foundation of the Fortinet Security Fabric, the FortiGate Enterprise Firewall is the only solution that delivers the scale, automation, and performance needed to protect from the edge to the datacenter and from IoT to the Cloud.

Ken Xie, founder, chairman of the board and CEO at Fortinet

“Cybersecurity is a very dynamic space. Customer requirements keep evolving, the attack surface is growing as mobile devices, cloud computing and IoT is used in corporate networks, and the threat landscape is getting more sophisticated and automated. Just over a year ago, we launched our Fortinet Security Fabric technology vision to deliver an architectural approach to security that is specifically designed to see and respond to threats in real time, automatically adapt to distributed networks and provide the performance needed to keep up with growing data and user demands. We believe that Gartner's recognition of Fortinet as a leader in its Enterprise Firewall Magic Quadrant is a testament to the successful execution and market adoption of our Security Fabric vision.”

More than 310,000 customers trust Fortinet solutions to deliver the broadest, most powerful and highly automated security to defend their entire attack surfaces. FortiGate Enterprise Firewall customers have enthusiastically provided 288 perfect 5-star reviews and 498 total reviews on Gartner Peer Insights – compared with the 418 reviews for the next ten enterprise firewall vendors combined as of July 12th.2

Independent evaluation and market analysis conducted by firms like Gartner are critical to help businesses determine the best vendors to protect their critical data and assets against an increasingly hostile threat landscape.

Executing on Fortinet's Vision

Since its founding, Fortinet has challenged the traditional concepts of network security with a focus on engineering innovative cybersecurity solutions with the breadth to cover an organization's entire attack surface, the performance needed to handle the massive amounts of data traversing enterprise networks and the automation required to rapidly respond to threats. One year ago, Fortinet forever changed the way enterprises look at cybersecurity with its Security Fabric vision to deliver a holistic and adaptive architecture capable of defending the entire infrastructure, so they can best compete in the rapidly evolving digital economy.

Fortinet's FortiGate enterprise firewalls are central to the Fortinet Security Fabric – engineered to unify and automate multi-layered response to threats in addition to delivering superior Next-Generation Firewall (NGFW) capabilities.

In order to deliver a truly integrated Security Fabric, Fortinet developed its universal security operating system, invested in the development of sophisticated security processors, provided Security Fabric APIs to integrate third-party security solutions and built the largest and most mature threat intelligence infrastructure on the planet. The combination of these innovations enables Fortinet to deliver an integrated security ecosystem that ties together security at the perimeter, in the data center, on the campus, in the cloud, across internal segments, at branch offices, and spanning IoT and end user devices.
