Fortinet(R) Earns Common Criteria EAL 2+ Certification for FortiAnalyzer(TM) 
v4.0 MR3 
Independently-Assured Security Certification Reinforces Fortinet's
Commitment to Government and Enterprise Customers 
SUNNYVALE, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 03/04/13 --   Fortinet(R) (NASDAQ:
FTNT) -- a world leader in high-performance network security -- today
announced the company's FortiAnalyzer(TM) v4.0 MR3 firmware and
FortiAnalyzer family of logging, analyzing and reporting appliances
has received certification for Common Criteria Evaluation Assurance
Level (EAL)2+. The FortiAnalyzer family of appliances securely
aggregates log data from Fortinet network security devices and other
syslog-compatible devices. A broad suite of easily customized reports
enables users to analyze, report and archive security event, network
traffic, Web content and messaging data to measure policy compliance. 
The Common Criteria certification process provides a third-party
evaluation service for determining the trustworthiness of information
technology security products, which is fundamentally important to the
company's enterprise and government customers. Evaluations involve
formal rigorous analysis and testing to examine security aspects of a
product or system. Extensive testing activities involve a broad an
d
formally repeatable process, confirming that the security product
functions as claimed by the manufacturer. Security weaknesses and
potential vulnerabilities are specifically examined during an
evaluation. 
The FortiAnalyzer platform integrates network logging, analysis and
reporting to increase an organization's knowledge of security events
throughout its network. With the FortiAnalyzer family, organizations
can centralize security event analysis, forensic research, reporting,
content archiving, data mining, malicious file quarantining and
vulnerability management in a single platform. 
"During the evaluation we found Fortinet's FortiAnalyzer v4.0 MR3 to
be a comprehensive log collection, analysis and reporting tool that
works well with a wide variety of Fortinet and other Syslog
compatible devices in a secure manner," said Erin Connor, director of
the EWA-Canada Common Criteria testing lab. "This EAL 2+ evaluation
is the latest in Fortinet's continuing commitment to providing high
quality products that are independently verified to meet
international security standards." 
"As Fortinet continues to focus on growing sales in large enterprises
and government markets, industry certifications such as Common
Criteria EAL 2+ become critical," said Steve Kirk, vice director of
Fortinet Federal. "By attaining the EAL 2+ certification, our
customers know that the FortiAnalyzer family offers a trusted
security solution and an assurance that we will be there to provide
full support over the long term."  
The Common Criteria for IT Security Evaluations, also known as ISO
standard 15408, was developed by the national security organizations
of the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom, France, Germany and
The Netherlands. It provides a broad range of evaluation criteria for
many types of commercial and nationally-sensitive government-use IT
security products. 
In January of this year, a number of Fortinet products were
Department of Defense UC APL Certified. Additional certifications
that Fortinet products have received include: ISO 9001:2008, NSS,
ICSA Labs, Virus Bulletin, FIPS, U.S. Army IAAPL and Common Criteria
Evaluation Assurance Level 4 (EAL 4+).
