Industry Leading Market Strategy, Technological Innovation and
Customer Support Gives Fortinet the Crown in Asia Pacific 
SUNNYVALE, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 07/18/13 --  Fortinet(R) (NASDAQ:
FTNT) -- a world leader in high-performance network security -- today
announced that it has been honored with the 2013 Frost & Sullivan
Asia Pacific Network Security Vendor of the Year Award. The trophy
was presented yesterday at the Frost & Sullivan Asia Pacific ICT
Awards banquet held at the St. Regis Hotel in Singapore.  
This accolade is a tribute to Fortinet's dynamic market strategy,
product innovation and excellent customer service relative to its
peers. The award also credits Fortinet for its revenue and market
share growth, breadth of solutions and acquisition of major
customers. 
An independent panel of eminent judges that was comprised of Asia
Pacific industry leaders as well as Frost & Sullivan's ICT analyst
team evaluated the various contenders for this award based on the
aforementioned criteria. The award covers the Firewall/IPSec VPN, SSL
VPN and IDS/IPS market segments. 
Edison Yu, associate director, Asia Pacific, ICT Practice, Frost &
Sullivan, said: "We believe Fortinet's award win can be attributed to
its efforts in driving forth thought leadership in the network
security arena. More importantly, it highlights the vendor's success
in offering highly customizable security solutions to suit the exact
needs of the modern-day enterprise. By infusing a customer-centric
mindset with its commitment to technology excellence, Fortinet was
able to clock an impressive growth rate of 36.4 percent on a
year-over-year basis in 2012, despite emerging challenges in the
macro-economic environment. This also enabled Fortinet to capture
greater market share in what is a highly competitive market segment." 
The Frost & Sullivan Asia Pacific ICT Awards, now in its 10th year,
recognizes companies and individuals that have pushed the boundaries
of excellence, rising above the competition and demonstrating
outstanding performance in the ICT sector across Asia Pacific. 
Patrice Perche, Fortinet's senior vice president for international
sales & support, said: "This win is a testament to the company and
our Asia Pacific teams who have worked tirelessly to serve our
customers on the ground. We intend to continue to invest in our
people, channel and solutions as we strive to become the network
security vendor of choice for even more enterprises across the
region."
