SUNNYVALE, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 06/06/13 --  Fortinet(R) (NASDAQ:
FTNT) -- a world leader in high-performance network security -- today
announced that it has won the 2013 Network World Asia (NWA)
Information Management Award in the category of Virtualization
Security. Fortinet's solutions were voted as the industry's best by
NWA editors and 100 Asia Pacific CIOs and IT heads who read NWA or
its sister publications Networks Asia, Security Asia and Storage
Asia. The award ceremony was held in Singapore last night.  
Said Victor Ng, Southeast Asia Bureau Chief for Network World Asia:
"The judges found Fortinet's virtualization security offerings to be
broad, technologically advanced and well-designed to address the
business issues faced by enterprises. Clearly, Fortinet has invested
many resources to develop the products to their present level, and we
are pleased to be able to acknowledge them as the industry's best
Conducted by the Questex Media group that owns the four pan-Asia
publications, the NWA Information Management Awards saw its editors
first short-listing the top two or three products in 25 categories,
before putting them to IT leaders for a poll. Judging criteria used
by both editors and IT leaders include reputation of vendor in the
marketplace; features of the solutions; market acceptance of the
technology and brand; users' feedback on the solution/deployment; and
the solutions' durability, scalability and quality of service. 
"A good virtualization security solution must secure the enterprise
end-to-end while keeping real estate and energy requirements to a
minimum," said George Chang, Fortinet's vice president for Southeast
Asia and Hong Kong. "It's heartening to know that so many IT
end-users consider Fortinet the leader in this regard. We will
continue to push the envelope and develop even higher performing
virtualization solutions in future." 
Fortinet has two categories of virtualization security solutions --
virtual appliances and virtualized applications.  
Virtual appliance versions of the main Fortinet products are
available to let customers who have embraced virtual environments to
continue to rely on the vendor's proven security solutions to protect
their network. With these appliances, enterprises could scale quickly
to meet demand and protect intra-virtual machine communications by
implementing critical security controls within their virtual
infrastructure, running on both VMware and Xen. 
Using Fortinet's virtual or physical appliances, organizations can
also virtually segment their network into multi-tenant environments.
Fortinet has offered virtual domains and administrative domains for
several years in many of its products, supporting customers who wish
to create virtual environments to support multi-tenant environments
(such as service providers and telecommunications carriers) or
segmented environments to better control data access and egress
within their environment.
