DUBAI, United Arab Emirates, April 22, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Fortinet® (NASDAQ: FTNT), a pioneer in high-performance cyber security, was recently recognised with the Frost & Sullivan New Product Innovation Leadership Award for Security Services in the Middle East at the annual Growth, Innovation and Leadership (GIL) 2015: Middle East, held in Dubai last month. The Award recognises Fortinet for its innovation in custom Application-Specific Integrated Circuit, hardware systems, network software, management capabilities, and security research. Fortinet's FortiGate-3810D is the world's first Datacenter Firewall security appliance with 100GbE interface ports and 300+Gbps throughput, which meets the stringent performance and connectivity demands of next-generation, high-speed datacenters. Today, Fortinet is the third-largest network security vendor in the market as it provides its clients with the best purchasing experience.
Yann Pradelle, Fortinet's vice president for South Europe, Middle East and Africa, said: "We are proud that our exceptional levels of performance and innovation are recognized by Frost & Sullivan. We will continue to invest in talent and technology as we strive to become the network security vendor of choice for even more enterprises across the region."
The FortiGate-3810D's 3U appliance form factor saves space and power, and includes unique features such as Virtual Domain and transparent mode, allowing networks to be segmented without having to make major modifications to the network. Congratulating Fortinet on the award, Satyajit Lele, research analyst, Best Practices, Frost & Sullivan, said, "Compared with competing compact, low-power appliances that typically achieve a maximum of only 40 to 60 Gbps firewall throughput yet are more expensive, the FortiGate-3810D redefines the limit of data center-class performance by supporting core network speeds of over 300 Gbps. Enterprises today are facing increasing pressure to support higher speed and data volumes due to rapidly changing, complex and competitive business needs. The FortiGate-3810D helps customers to accomplish this objective without having to step up to the cost and complexity of a carrier-grade chassis solution."

Industry analysts compare market participants and measure performance through in-depth interviews, analysis and, extensive secondary research in order to identify best practices.
