Fortinet Succesfully blocks 99.9pc of Exploits in NSS Labs Data Center IPS Test


Fortinet announces that its FortiGate 3000D earned the highest ratings for Security Effectiveness at the recent the NSS Lab’s DCIPS report blocking  99.9 percent of exploits, and TCO (Total Cost of Ownership) per protected Mbps (Megabit per second).

The solution is known to be put to the test against competing solutions, proving to be capable of thwarting 100 percent of all evasion techniques, as well as receiving a score of 100 percent for reliability and stability.

Key Nuggets include

Security Effectiveness: Fortinet achieved a near-perfect security effectiveness score of 99.9 percent. Not only in security but also in detecting almost decade-old exploits was impressive and protecting against more sophisticated attacks that leverage obfuscation and evasion techniques.

Real-World Performance: The FortiGate 3000D excelled in performance by handling data center traffic under a continuous heavy load on the IPS inspection process. The FortiGate 3000D readily handles traffic for potentially hundreds of thousands of users who require access to enterprise resources inside the network perimeter. With the FortiGate 3000D, organizations can handle exponentially increasing traffic inspection in their data center without worrying about congesting networks or that application access will be adversely affected.

Value: NSS Labs leverages a formula that includes security effectiveness, tested performance, and finally cost to determine the true value of a DCIPS. This formula is represented in NSS Labs’ Security Value Map, in which Fortinet was again pronounced a leader in TCO based on the company’s legendary performance, and cost effective security offerings.

Citing on the recent achievement, Rajesh Maurya, Regional Director India & SAARC, Fortinet said, “Enterprise data centers are crucial to day-to-day business functions. Attacks against these server farms can have profound impacts on the overall business, which is a risk enterprises cannot afford. Data Center IPS (DCIPS) are an essential security control and validation from third-party testing holds vendors accountable to their product and performance claims. This is critical to help IT managers and businesses make informed purchasing decisions based on individual business needs and ensuring that the critical data remains secure in any situation.”

Vikram Phatak, chief executive officer of NSS Labs said, “Third-party testing from NSS Labs helps customers to evaluate product options based on real-world testing and the subsequent results. We have seen Fortinet perform consistently well during our various testing programs and this is another prime example of their ability to deliver industry-leading performance and receive the recommendation based on our latest testing.”

Fortinet is known to have received NSS Labs recommendations for their FortiSandbox Breach Detection System (BDS), FortiGuard Next-Generation Firewall (NGFW), FortiClient Endpoint Protection, and FortiWeb Web Application Firewalls (WAF), among others. This ensures that Fortinet customers can implement the very best security fabric from the endpoint to the cloud and everything in between.

NSS Labs conducts regular testing of the top DCIPS vendors, subjecting competitive solutions to strenuous, real-world scenarios that test security effectiveness, network performance, and TCO. These results are used to generate their Security Value Map (SVM) and Comparative Reports.
