Cybersecurity solutions provider Fortinet said that its FortiGate 500E Next Generation Firewall has achieved 99.31 per cent overall security effectiveness and low total cost of ownership from NSS Labs. NSS Labs conduct third-party testing and validation for the security solution. This is the fifth consecutive year Fortinet received a “Recommended” rating, said the company.
Third-party testing and validation from organizations like NSS Labs help organisations choose the best security solution that offers effectiveness, performance and optimal total cost of ownership.
“Underscoring our commitment to providing customers with superior technology and performance, Fortinet transparently publishes SSL inspection performance numbers proving that Fortinet delivers a compelling SSL-ready cloud access next-generation firewall for successful cloud adoption and SD-WAN deployments,” said Rajesh Maurya, Regional Vice President, India & SAARC, Fortinet.
NSS Labs predicts that around 75 per cent of total enterprise traffic will be encrypted by 2019. To successfully compete in today’s marketplace, organizations can’t afford to compromise business performance for security. That’s why it’s essential that organizations select a next-generation firewall solution that combines high SSL inspection performance with high accuracy, said Fortinet.
