Fortinet earns NSS Labs recommended rating for 2 of its Firewalls

Fortinet has recently announced its results in the inaugural NSS Labs Data Center Security Gateway group test report. The testing revealed that Fortinet’s FortiGate 7060E and 3000D next-Generation Firewalls (NGFWs) both earned NSS Labs’ coveted “Recommended” rating.


· The FortiGate 7060E and 3000D NGFWs both delivered the industry’s leading combination of Security Effectiveness and Value per protected Megabit per Second (Mbps) in the NSS Labs Security Value Map (SVM).

· The FortiGate 7060E demonstrated faster IPS throughput than the performance guaranteed in its data sheet.

· NSS Labs’ new Data Center Security Gateway report is the industry’s most comprehensive test of security effectiveness and network performance for data center security appliances offered today and helps customers select the best solutions based on real-world results.

The digital transformation is paving the way for 100-gigabit network architectures that require security solutions able to keep up with increasing volume of traffic and secure a mix of different traffic types such as IPv4 and IPv6. The persistent nature of attacks also means that today’s data centers require advanced threat prevention capabilities like intrusion prevention (IPS) that can be applied at line speeds.


Fortinet’s FortiGate NGFWs are designed to deliver the high throughput and security effectiveness required in today’s large scale data centers. The FortiGates utilize Fortinet security and network processors to deliver the high-performance security with single- digit application traffic latency for both IPv4 and increasing volumes of IPv6 traffic. Delivering NGFW throughputs from 30 Mbps up to more than 100 Gbps, Fortinet’s FortiGate NGFWs suit a wide range of data center security use-cases without disrupting network speed.


At the high end of the spectrum, the FortiGate 7060E NGFW is a powerful combination of advanced intrusion prevention (IPS), granular application control, and broad threat protection at multi-gigabit speeds.


Fortinet solutions consistently demonstrated superior security effectiveness, advanced features and superior performance when put to the test. Fortinet’s commitment to testing and validation has resulted in nine Fortinet solutions earning NSS Recommended ratings across seven different group tests throughout 2017:


Speaking on the same, Vikram Phatak, Chief Executive Officer, NSS Labs, said, “NSS Labs is focussed on empowering enterprises to make informed decisions based on independent real-world testing results. We applaud Fortinet’s commitment to third-party testing. Fortinet’s Recommended rating in our 2017 DCSG Group Test makes them a great option for any business looking to strengthen their data center security architecture.”
