Effectiveness, Performance, and Value: The Role of Third Party Security Testing

Third party testing of security products and solutions plays a critical role in thwarting cybercriminals. The reason is simple: organizations need effective security solutions that meet an evolving set of requirements, and far too many security vendors don’t do a very good job of providing data that enables a fair comparison between competing solutions. It’s like comparison-shopping at the grocery store. Items next to each other appear similar at a glance, but when you look closely at the labels you find that one is priced per ounce, while the next is labeled with price per unit. Another calls itself “healthy,” yet contains too many grams of fat.

Recommended! FortiGate 7060E and 3000D Excel in Combined Security Effectiveness, Performance and TCO in the First NSS Labs Data Center Security Gateway Group Test

Threats are constantly evolving to evade security defenses at the same time that digital transformation initiatives are introducing new attack vectors. And in addition to staying ahead of the latest threats, security solutions must also keep up with the vast amounts of differing network traffic types they have to inspect, such as IPv4 and IPv6, and increasingly, encrypted traffic as well. And they must do all this without adding latency or decreasing the speed of access. Today’s threats also proliferate quickly, requiring advanced threat prevention...

NSS Labs NGFW Report: Fortinet Receives 4th Consecutive Recommended Rating

One of the biggest security challenges organizations face is sorting through solutions from literally hundreds of vendors in the IT market to find the one that is going to provide them with the best protection at a cost they can afford. Each of these vendors claims to solve critical security issues, and they use volumes of white papers and marketing campaigns to promote their solutions. Of course, proper security is essential. As networks continue to expand and become more complex, organizations are increasingly reliant on effective...

How Fortinet Customers Benefit From Open Third-party Evaluation

Adaptive and comprehensive protection against an evolving threat landscape can be a complex discussion. When you add in layers of marketing hype, footnoted claims, and qualified conditions, then it’s not surprising to hear that customers get confused when it comes to choosing security for their business. If what a customer sees after deployment doesn’t measure up to the promises, that creates understandable trust issues and frustration for someone who thought they were buying a proven and reputable solution. Changes to network...
