Fortinet Takes Award for Unified Threat Management (UTM) Market Leadership 
Frost & Sullivan Recognizes Fortinet With "Market Share Leadership
Award, Unified Threat Management, North America, 2013" 
SUNNYVALE, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 04/19/13 --  Fortinet(R) (NASDAQ:
FTNT) -- a world leader in high-performance network security -- today
announced that it received the "Market Share Leadership Award,
Unified Threat Management, North America" for 2013 by Frost &
Sullivan, a leading global industry analyst organization. 
The Frost and Sullivan Award for Market Share Leadership is presented
to the company that demonstrates excellence in capturing the highest
market share within its industry. This award recognizes the company's
leadership position within the unified threat management (UTM)
market. 
"Unified threat management appliances protect thousands of business
networks around the world, by integrating firewall, VPN, intrusion
prevention, application control, web filtering, antivirus and
granular user controls," said John Maddison, VP of Marketing at
Fortinet. "Fortinet leads this market because no other vendor
delivers as fast and secure of a UTM solution." 
Frost & Sullivan points out that because UTMs integrate security
technologies, they provide businesses with operational efficiencies,
too. Fortinet concurs, as many customers cite superior TCO, single
pane of glass management and end-to-end wired and wireless policy
enforcement as key reasons of adopting their FortiGate appliances. 
"Fortinet earned 20.5 percent of the UTM market in 2012, leading the
UTM market for the fifth consecutive year that Frost & Sullivan has
tracked this market," said Chris Rodriguez, Senior Industry Analyst,
Frost & Sullivan. "This success is the result of an aggressive
product development strategy and strategic business partnerships
driven by a singular focus on customer needs. With many new products
and features on the company's roadmap, Fortinet is well positioned to
grow its share of the market further in 2013." 
FortiGate - Fast & Secure Protection for Any Sized Network 
FortiGate appliances provide enterprise-class protection against
network, content, and application-level threats. From the
FortiGate-20 series for small offices to the FortiGate-5000 series
for very large enterprises, service providers and carriers, Fortinet
offers UTM models for any deployment environment. 
Dynamic updates from the FortiGuard Labs global threat research team
ensure that networks, applications and data are protected against the
latest threats. Additionally, FortiGate security appliances
incorporate sophisticated networking features, such as high
availability (active/active, active/passive) for maximum network
uptime, and virtual domain (VDOM) capabilities to separate various
networks requiring different security policies.
