Fortinet has been awarded the Best Network Security Appliance award from SE Labs – one of the most respected labs in the testing community. SE Labs has been testing FortiGate products for the past three years, and in addition to this accolade, have awarded a AAA rating to the FortiGate solution for the third year in a row.
Flexibility and performance make Fortinet FortiGate a 'top solution'
Awards are given after continual in-depth testing, including public testing, private assessments using publicly available and highly targeted attacks that span the full attack chain. Additionally, feedback received from corporate clients who use SE Labs to help choose security products and services was also incorporated.
“For our annual Network Security Appliance report, we run hundreds of tests ranging from basic to highly advanced, ranging from publicly available malware to customized “file-less” attacks, as well as macro and memory-injection attacks. The Fortinet FortiGate not only demonstrated strong effectiveness against this challenging set of threats with perfect accuracy, earning it our coveted AAA rating, but its performance and flexibility set it apart as the top solution among our test candidates this year.” —Simon Edwards, CEO at SE Labs
FortiGate Next-Generation Firewalls (NGFWs)
FortiGate Next-Generation Firewalls (NGFWs) are designed to simplify security complexity while providing deep visibility into applications, users, and networks. Its market-leading price-performance benefit is due in part to its use of patented, purpose-built security processing units (SPUs) that provide the highest-speed processing of critical security functions at low cost. Because of the design, FortiGate NGFWs enable deployment flexibility that can be tailored to the specific security needs of an enterprise, whether running one or more security features like SSL/TLS inspection, IPS, and antivirus individually or concurrently with minimal performance degradation.
FortiGate also leverages advanced threat intelligence services from FortiGuard Labs to deliver top-rated security and high-performance threat protection (e.g., intrusion prevention, web filtering, anti-malware, application control) for known attacks, while unknown attacks are detected and prevented by Fortinet on-premises and cloud-based advanced threat protection solutions.
