at the famed Happy Valley Racecourse in Hong Kong. 
"Since 2002, Computerworld Hong Kong has sought to identify the
territory's leading technology providers by canvassing the expert
views of Hong Kong's leading IT professionals in order to recognize
IT excellence and market leadership across 40-plus award categories,"
said Sheila Lam, editor at Computerworld Hong Kong. "Fortinet has
been acknowledged this year by our readers as the leading provider in
the UTM market and has clearly demonstrated a high level of service
quality and product excellence." 
This is the latest award Fortinet has received for its FortiGate
portfolio. Earlier this year, NSS Labs gave their top "Recommend"
rating to the FortiGate-3600C, FortiGate-800C and FortiGate-3240C for
Next Generation Firewall, Firewall and IPS, respectively, based on
the appliances' security effectiveness, high performance and low
total cost of ownership. Earlier this month, Fortinet also won the
Computerworld Malaysia and Computerworld Singapore Customer Care

Virtualization Security.  
FortiGate consolidated security platforms deliver unmatched
performance and protection while simplifying the network. Fortinet

platforms combine the FortiOS(TM) security operating system with
FortiASIC(TM) processors and latest-generation CPUs to other hardware
to provide a comprehensive, high-performance security solution to
meet most business needs.  
George Chang, Fortinet's VP for Southeast Asia and Hong Kong, said:
"IDC's research has already shown Fortinet to be a security market
leader in Hong Kong, but getting a direct endorsement from customers
takes our industry recognition to another level. We intend to
continue to invest in product R&D, sales and support staff, and the
channel to ensure that Fortinet remains enterprises' best partner for
network security."
