Fortinet Secures Advanced Threat Defense Certification From ICSA Labs

SUNNYVALE, CA--(Marketwired - December 08, 2015) - Fortinet® (NASDAQ: FTNT) -- a global leader in high-performance cybersecurity solutions -- today announced that its Advanced Threat Protection (ATP) Framework has achieved Advanced Threat Defense (ATD) Certification from ICSA Labs, an independent division of Verizon, which offers vendor-neutral testing and certification. ICSA Labs Advanced Threat Defense (ATD) Certification testing is conducted by an ISO-accredited lab focused on the detection of malicious threats that traditional security products miss.

"With so much noise in the market, it can be a daunting challenge for organizations to separate security fact from fiction. That's why Fortinet consistently submits our broad portfolio to rigorous, independent, third-party testing that enables customers to understand how our solutions perform in the real-world," said John Maddison, vice president of products and solutions at Fortinet. "ICSA Labs Advanced Threat Defense Certification demonstrates that our ATP Framework delivers advanced protection from the data center to edge to endpoint."

To demonstrate Fortinet's ability to keep pace with an ever-evolving threat landscape, their Advanced Threat Protection Framework is tested by ICSA Labs as many as four times a year -- each time against the latest threats. Fortinet successfully completed the initial round of that ATD testing and was among the first to attain ICSA Labs ATD Certification.

"Cyberthreats change, and as they do, security technology and multi-layered threat intelligence solutions need to keep up," said George Japak, managing director of ICSA Labs. "Achieving certification in our Advanced Threat Defense Certification testing program demonstrates that Fortinet's ATP security solution is able to protect against new and little-known malicious threats that traditional security products miss."

ICSA Labs only publishes reports for the ATD solutions that met all the requirements in version 1.0 of the Advanced Threat Defense Certification Testing Criteria.

The Fortinet Advanced Threat Protection (ATP) Framework delivers a broad and automated approach to security that combines threat prevention, detection and mitigation to thwart advanced attacks that are crafted to bypass traditional security defenses.

While each individual component of Fortinet's ATP Framework has earned and continues to earn top marks in independent testing, this is the first independent testing and certification of the broader integrated solution. Most notably, Fortinet's ATP Framework identified and mitigated more than 500 advanced attacks and flagged next to no false positives over the 28 days of continuous testing.

ICSA Labs tested three high-performance and seamlessly integrated ATP Framework components:

Fortinet's entire ATP Framework is reinforced with advanced threat intelligence and research from FortiGuard Labs, thereby providing continuous and automatic updates that deliver advanced protection against the latest threats when they arise.
