Fortinet’s FortiGate family of multi-threat security systems have received certification for network intrusion prevention system from ICSA Labs. With this, Fortinet becomes the first vendor whose UTM models have achieved Network IPS certification from ICSA Labs.
The FortiGate systems attained ICSA Labs´ Network IPS Certification after stringent security, management and performance testing. A result of more than a year of research, industry cooperation and end-user feedback, ICSA Labs´ testing methodology included attacks targeting hundreds of medium-to-high severity vulnerabilities, numerous complex evasion techniques, denial-of-service attacks and latency measurements.
Fortinet is the only network security vendor to date to have received eight unique and in-demand ICSA Labs security certifications, including five for the FortiGate multithreat security appliances in distinct security technologies (firewalls, antivirus, network intrusion prevention, IPSec VPN and SSL VPN) and three desktop/server antivirus certifications for FortiClient (detection, cleaning and antispyware).
