Fortinet has revealed that its product FortiWeb- 100D, the web application firewall has received ‘Recommended’ rating in the testing of NSS Labs. The solution cleared all the test categories for Threat Evasions, False Positive, Stability, and Reliability, while outperforming published claims of throughput and HTTP Connections per Second. It also managed to block 99.85% of WAF attacks.
Speaking about the achievement, Rajesh Maurya, Country Manager, India & SAARC, Fortinet, said “Customers look to NSS Labs as the industry gold standard for the testing of security solutions ranging from firewalls to the latest breach detection systems. Third party tests such as this are critical in helping customers evaluate product effectiveness, especially in a security environment replete with vendor marketing. NSS Labs’ expansion into Web application firewalls underscores the importance of this category for enterprises, as applications become increasingly vulnerable to a rising tide of Web application attacks. We’re pleased that our FortiWeb-1000D was selected to be included in this first WAF test by NSS. The ‘Recommended’ rating serves as a trusted beacon for customers looking to incorporate an effective, reliable and high-performance WAF into their network security infrastructure, and this positive rating reflects Fortinet’s focus on products and technology to solve complex problems.”
The ‘Recommended’ ratings of NSS Labs highlight that the product shows outstanding performance and deserves serious consideration by end user customers. NSS Labs reserves its “Recommended” rating for only the top performing products, regardless of vendor market share, size or marketing efforts. Commenting on the same, Vikram Phatak, CEO at NSS Labs, said “Enterprise organizations require a combination of performance and security effectiveness in WAF solutions in order to protect critical data from malicious Web application threats. The FortiWeb-1000D met all benchmarks in tests evaluating threat evasion and false positives, and exceeded stated performance claims.”
