Fortinet(R) Boosts Network Security Management, Reporting and Logging With New 
Feature Enhancements and Appliance Models 
New Product Features and Models Expand Fortinet's Versatile and
Adaptive Network Security Management Solution 
SUNNYVALE, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 05/28/13 --  Fortinet(R) (NASDAQ:
FTNT) -- a world leader in high-performance network security -- today
announced several significant feature enhancements to its line of
FortiManager and FortiAnalyzer products for midsized to large,
distributed enterprises and MSSPs. These enhancements help
organizations address the need for a versatile security management
solution that can adapt to constantly evolving business requirements,
technology changes and the dynamic threat landscape.  
FortiManager allows IT administrators to centrally manage the
policies and configurations of distributed FortiGate(R),
FortiWiFi(TM), and FortiAP devices while FortiAnalyzer enables
logging, reporting and analysis for enhanced network visibility and
compliance. The range of hardware and cloud-based options, coupled
with simple pricing models and feature-rich technology, give
organizations the ability to deploy the right solution for their
requirements. 
Compelling Software Enhancements
 The following new features were
added as part of the 5.0.2 firmware releases: 
FortiAnalyzer 


 
--  Log Arrays that allow logical device groupings for viewing aggregate
    logs and running reports
--  New Reports for client reputation, Web filtering, dial-up/SSL VPN
    users and PCI compliance
--  Report Import and Export, which enables chart and report portability
    between different Administrative Domains (ADOMS) and devices
--  Enhanced GUI for viewing logs, defining alert conditions and it
    features a dataset tester for helping users experiment with queries

  
FortiManager 


 
--  FortiGuard Management Tab allows users to manage content security and
    firmware updates from FortiGuard Labs
--  Administrative Domain (ADOM) Revisions enable users to create, view,
    revert and compare any ADOM policy package changes
--  Object Searching helps to determine where specific firewall and policy
    objects are used
--  IncreasedLicense Limits on FortiManager Virtual Appliance means users
    have daily storage and device licensing increases without an extra
    increase in costs
--  Quick Install for Multiple Devices allows updates to be made to
    multiple devices quickly

  
With these new features, FortiManager and FortiAnalyzer continue to
address the constantly evolving business requirements, technological
changes and dynamic threat landscape facing today's networks.
Organizations of all sizes need a security management solution that
can adapt to these changes and allow them to stay secure amidst their
network's continued evolution. 
"Current business requirements do not always match future business
needs. The ability to quickly deploy or rearchitect a management and
logging infrastructure, customize enterprise environments, reduce
licensing complexities and provision storage dynamically are all
paramount for today's midsize and enterprise-level organizations,"
said John Maddison, vice president of marketing for Fortinet. "These
principles are key tenets of our versatile and adaptive management
solution."  
New Models and Availability
 In addition to the introduction of new
software enhancements, Fortinet also added several new models to its
management product offering.  


 
--  FortiAnalyzer-300D - Targeting midsized businesses, the
    FortiAnalyzer-300D is licensed for up to 15 GB per day of log storage
    and includes 4 TB of storage. It can either act as a standalone
    logging/reporting device or as a "collector," which acts as a log
    forwarder in larger distributed environments
--  FortiAnalyzer-3000D - Built for enterprise deployments, the
    FortiAnalyzer-3000D is capable of processing up to 150 GB per day of
    log storage and comes with 16 TB of storage. Similar to the
    FortiAnalyzer-300D, the FortiAnalyzer-3000D can operate in different
    modes thus offering a versatile set of deployment scenarios
--  FortiManager-300D - The FortiManager-300D is for midsized
    organizations and is capable of managing up to 300 FortiGate devices.
    Additionally, the FortiManager-300D includes FortiAnalyzer logging and
    reporting for smaller environments looking to consolidate
    management/reporting functions
--  FortiManager-4000D - The FortiManager-4000D is built for large
    distributed enterprises with hundreds of policies and up to 4,000
    FortiGates under management. Like the FortiManager-300D, the
    FortiManager-4000D includes FortiAnalyzer logging and reporting, but
    is tailor-made for midsized businesses looking to consolidate
    management and reporting roles
