Business & Technology
We are pleased to announce Fortinet has been named a Leader in The Forrester Wave™: Enterprise Firewalls, Q4 2022 report. We believe our position as a Leader is a testament to our investment in providing a Next-Generation Firewall (NGFW) solution that serves as an enabler of digital acceleration, made possible through the convergence of advanced networking and security capabilities. We are proud to be selected as one of only three vendors in the Leader category.
FortiGate Next-generation Firewalls serve as the foundation of a converged security and networking platform and we are committed to continuously innovating our NGFW solutions to meet our customers’ evolving needs. We believe this approach to continuous innovation is a factor in why Fortinet received the highest possible scores in 11 criteria across Forrester’s report:
According to the Forrester report, “Fortinet excels at performance for value and offers a wide array of adjacent services. Long known for its bang-for-the-buck approach to network security, Fortinet has built a flexible and capable platform with its flagship product, the FortiGate Firewall. Fortinet continues to demonstrate compelling performance for cost, and not only weathered the pandemic but grew revenue and customer base significantly. The FortiGate platform’s dedication to being API-first has enabled the vendor to build a superior partner ecosystem, and customers applaud the responsiveness of Fortinet’s support.”
The report continues to say that “Fortinet shines when comparing performance vs. cost to other offerings, featuring dedicated NP7 network processors in the first midrange 10G platform. Fortinet offers an array of services to support the security teams of its FortiGate customers including SOCaaS, FortiSOAR, incident response service, digital forensics, and MDR. The vendor’s SD-WAN is widely used in partner programs. In addition to basic SD-WAN capabilities, it includes features such as built-in LTE, link cost balancing, and policy-based routing. Reference customers found Fortinet’s usability and policy creation to be merely average. Small-, mid-, and now large-market customers looking to maximize savings on a broad portfolio of network security capabilities for on-prem locations will find Fortinet the best option.”
It’s no secret that organizations in all sectors must do more with less. They must protect more data and an expanding attack surface while cutting costs and struggling with understaffed teams. We remain committed to offering a network firewall solution that serves as the foundation of a converged security and networking platform, one that extends well beyond the enterprise perimeter while also enabling IT to stay under budget and deliver real value to the business.
