Fortinet hits security market milestone

10 Aug 2015

Fortinet has shipped more security appliances each year than any other vendor since 2013, and has the largest market share of combined appliance shipments since 2012.

This is according to IDC’s latest Worldwide Quarterly Security Appliance Tracker.

The report also revealed Fortinet has shipped more than two-million security appliances since the company’s founding in 2000, and in the first quarter of 2015 Fortinet shipped 171% unites versus their next closest competitor.

The company says this reinforces Fortinet’s strategy to provide customers across the globe with a robust platform of integrated, high-performance cyber security solutions, from the data centre to the cloud and everything in between.

“Breaking the two-million units shipped milestone is an important win for Fortinet,” says Ken Xie, Fortinet founder, chairman and CEO.

“Results like these are not only a reflection of our growth, expansion and market share gains, they also demonstrate the hard work, talent and dedication that our employees and partners bring to work everyday, as we strive to make Fortinet the number one leader in the cyber security industry,” he says.

The IDC report also shows Fortinet has been gaining both revenue and shipment market share in the data centre, enterprise and SMB market segments.

Fortinet attributes this ongoing market momentum to a strong customer focus, return on its sales and marketing investments, partner momentum and continuous best-of-breed technology innovation.

Recent innovations such as its high-performance Internal Segmentation Firewall (ISFW) solutions further enhance Fortinet’s broad security platform by providing additional protection for key data and resources housed inside the network.

Backed by Fortinet’s FortiGuard Lab’s leading threat intelligence and research team, only Fortinet can protect organisations from cyber-threats at every possible entry point to the network.
