For the 5th consecutive year, Fortinet is a leader in Gartner's Unified Threat Management (UTM) Magic Quadrant.
As defined in this report, Gartner says, “The Leaders quadrant contains vendors at the forefront of making and selling UTM products that are built for midsize business requirements. Vendors in this quadrant lead the market in offering new safeguarding features, and in enabling customers to deploy them inexpensively without significantly affecting the end-user experience or increasing staffing burdens.”
We believe Fortinet's high-performance network security solutions support all of the classic UTM features – including Firewall, VPN, IPS, and Secure Web Gateway capabilities (Anti-Malware, URL and Application Control) – plus a number of new, extended features including integrated switching, wireless controller and advanced threat protection.
Fortinet’s leadership is further enabled by innovative and aggressive engineering, including FortiASIC technology, FortiOS network security operating system, and Fortinet's FortiGuard Labs’ threat research, and Fortinet's strong channel and MSSP support.

With such a large-scale project, we had stringent technical requirements and the FortiGate security systems demonstrated the resilience, scalability and capacity needed to cope with the enormity of our project. Fortinet's integrated security platform and per-system licensing also allowed us to take a centralized security and management approach and thus avoid the management and licensing challenges associated with the implementation of servers and separate point solutions.
