Aside from this, Fortinet noted that Fortigate IPS appliances are capable of meeting critical network performance demands without compromising the need for comprehensive data center security.

“Before investing in Network Security equipment, we always recommend that customers test according to their specific environment. For many organizations, however, that is simply not possible. Which is why we are so committed to third party testing. But for those tests to be valuable, they need to reflect real world requirements. Because Data Center IPS plays such a critical role in protecting applications, it’s important that any security product testing addresses security effectiveness as well as performance. The latest DC IPS Group Test report from NSS Labs shows that not all vendors perform the same when it comes to these parameters. Fortinet is pleased to have received this hard earned recommended rating, building on its prior recommendation for Next Generation Firewall and Data Center Security Gateway,” Fortinet Senior Vice President, Products and Solutions, John Maddison addressed.
