“Trust Award – Best UTM Security Solution
Winner – Fortinet for Fortinet Unified Threat Management Solution
When you build your network security defenses in piecemeal fashion, you risk ending up with some pieces that don’t quite fit. For those wishing to avoid that fate, the Fortinet Unified Threat Management Solution offers an affordable and manageable all-in-one UTM solution that truly stands out for its tight and seamless integration. It does the job of at least eight individual security products that would normally require their own separate management – including traditional firewalls, intrusion prevention systems, gateway antivirus, web filtering, secure email gateways, sandboxes, web application firewalls and CASB solutions.
Originally, UTM solutions traditionally combined network security, email security and web security together into a single solution. But more recently, the definition of UTM has expanded to include wired and wireless networking, integrated endpoints, sandboxing, additional networking extensions and cloud-based management. Fortinet has all that covered, offering extensive routing, switching, access control, Wi-Fi, LAN and WAN capabilities – all with tight cross-network and endpoint integration. Fortinet’s FortiGate UTM appliances offer high-performance SSL inspection capabilities for web– and cloud-based services. And as one of the first UTM vendors to offer SD-WAN functionality, Fortinet reduces WAN complexity and operating expenses, allowing companies to monitor and route traffic based on quality of service while improving and securing the performance of SaaS applications. To date, Fortinet has shipped more than four million UTM appliances to more than 350,000 customers.”
