NSS Labs DCIPS 2018 SVM and Report
NSS Labs’ Data Center Intrusion Prevention Systems (DCIPS) focuses on data center environments, especially vulnerabilities commonly found in servers. The Security Value Map (SVM) shows that FortiGate IPS achieved the highest cumulative blocking rate at 98.73% and the lowest TCO at $3 per protected Mbps. Fortinet builds world-class IPS appliances and another “Recommended” IPS rating from NSS Labs proves this.
NSS Labs DCSG 2017 SVM and Report
NSS Labs’ DCSG test is a comprehensive Data Center Security Gateway (DCSG) test, including several tests to measure relevant security effectiveness and Intrusion Prevention (IPS) performance using live exploits including “weaponized” exploits (97.9% and 98% block rate respectively for Fortinet FortiGate 7060E and FortiGate 3000D) and resistance to evasion techniques (100% block rate for Fortinet). The FortiGate 7060E and 3000D both achieved “Recommended” status, with a leading combination of Security Effectiveness and Value per protected Megabit Per Second (Mbps) in the NSS Labs Security Value Map (SVM).

NSS Labs Breach Prevention Systems (BPS) Test 2017
NSS Labs introduced a new group test, BPS focused on detecting and blocking exploits, advanced malware, and evasions. This helps validate the advanced threat response cycle of prevent-detect-mitigate across a number of threat vectors including web, email, and endpoint. Fortinet's Security Fabric consisting of FortiSandbox, FortiGate, FortiMail, and FortiClient integrated together, earned a Recommended award by achieving a block rate of 99.6% and offering the lowest 3-year TCO.
NSS Labs NGFW 2016 SVM
NSS Labs’ Next Generation Firewall (NGFW) real-world testing reveals that Fortinet delivers a winning combination of security, network performance, and total cost of ownership (TCO). Fortinet was nearly perfect; scoring 99.6% in overall security effectiveness. The FortiGate 3200D was rated by NSS at 19 Gbps, 37% above its data sheet specifications, with excellent TCO where the value increased based on actual performance compared to the claimed specifications.
NSS Labs 2015 Next Generation IPS Test
In 2015, NSS Labs conducted a group test of next generation IPS solutions to assess their abilities to identify both the applications and the users on their internal networks, protect the enterprise user against threats/exploits, and catch sophisticated attacks while producing as few false positives as possible. Demonstrating 99% effectiveness and superior value, Fortinet FortiGate earned the NSS Labs Recommendation.
