Fortinet named network security market leader
International Data Corporation’s (IDC) latest Worldwide Quarterly Security Appliance Tracker has named Fortinet as a leader in the security industry by consistently shipping more security devices than any other vendor.
Fortinet has shipped over 2,7-million security appliances since its founding. It has been the security market leader since 2013 consistently delivering more security devices per year than any other vendor on the planet.
Widening its leadership position, Fortinet has seen 2Q16 appliance shipments increase by 41% year-over-year, earning 25% market share in the second quarter of 2016.
A deeper look into the IDC data shows that Fortinet has been gaining market share across Enterprise, Mid-Sized and SMB market segments.
Fortinet attributes this momentum to delivering on the Security Fabric technology vision with a complete rethinking of security for its customers. Companies want an integrated security architecture designed to unify management, centralize and coordinate threat detection and intelligence, and provide a dynamically coordinated response to threats anywhere across the distributed network, from IoT to the cloud.
Ken Xie, founder, chairman and CEO at Fortinet, says: “Our strong foundation of innovation has enabled us to stay ahead of the ever-evolving threat landscape, solidifying our position as a leader in this critical space. These results show that businesses of all sizes trust Fortinet as the foundation for their cybersecurity, and they are embracing our vision of an integrated, collaborative and adaptive security fabric as a key enabler of success in the digital economy.”
