In addition, IDC reports Fortinet has shipped more security appliances each year than any other vendor since 2013, and has the largest market share of combined appliance shipments since 2012.
This important data reinforces Fortinet's strategy to provide customers across the globe with the most robust platform of integrated, high-performance cyber security solutions, from the data centre to the cloud and everything in between.
