Execution of Enterprise Firewall Strategy and Fortinet’s Security Fabric Solutions Evaluated in the Latest Gartner Report
Fortinet announced that it has been recognized the Leader in the 2017 Gartner Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Network Firewalls. The company was chosen for its ‘completeness of vision’ and ‘ability to execute’ as factors for the placement in the Magic Quadrant.
According to the report, Fortinet Security Fabric, the FortiGate Enterprise Firewall is the only solution that delivers the scale, automation, and performance that are 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 said,“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.”
From its establishment, Fortinet claims to have 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.
