One Product Line, Three NSS Labs Awards

Fortinet has earned three NSS Labs’ coveted “Recommend” ratings by delivering outstanding enterprise management, security effectiveness and TCO in three group tests: 2013 Next Generation Firewall 2013 Network Firewall 2012 Network Intrusion Prevention   NSS Labs put the FortiGate-3600C, FortiGate-800C and FortiGate-3240C appliances through extensive real-world tests and awarded each the “Recommend” rating for providing “a very high level of protection, manageability and value for money.” These awards are a big deal for several reasons. First, NSS Labs provides solid insight into the true performance of network security devices and their ability to protect against a wide range of threats. Network security professionals understand the need to balance the potentially competing requirements of more performance and more security at an abstract level, but often lack the information they need to make informed buying decisions.
