Frost & Sullivan awarded Fortinet the 2012 European Information Security Vendor of the Year Award, on 27 September, in London.

This recognition is conferred on the company that has shown exemplary performance in Europe over the past 12 months. The award category definition spans security functions including next-generation firewall, IPSec/SSLVPN and IPS.

Frost & Sullivan’s expert analysts evaluated the contenders based on key criteria, including market performance, strategy innovation and alignment with key trends observed across the sector. The independent judging panel consisting of European CIOs was most impressed by Fortinet.

“Frost & Sullivan is impressed by Fortinet’s 34% revenue growth in 2011, achieved in an intensively competitive market. Fortinet is one of the few remaining pure-player security vendors that continue to raise the bar in terms of product functionality and performance. Organisations need to address emerging challenges from mobility and web-based applications, and they are also looking to simplify their IT landscape. The Fortigate family of security appliances matches this trend perfectly,” said Adrian Drozd, Research Director, ICT Europe, Frost & Sullivan

In recognising Fortinet for this award, Frost & Sullivan highlighted the following differentiators:

* Fortinet reinforced its strong position in the mid-to-large enterprise and data centre segments, with innovative solutions in the area of high-performance next-generation firewalls, security virtualisation and wireless security.
* Fortinet has a unique focus on security and has enjoyed business and revenue growth that outpaces competitors.
* Fortinet has made strong investments in expanding its presence and business across Europe, in particular with the recruitment and/or opening of offices in Eastern Europe and the Nordics.
