Media Alert: Fortinet Presents 'Evolution of the Enterprise Firewall' Webinar

Guest Speaker Chris Christiansen to Discuss Enterprise Security Challenges and Solutions

SUNNYVALE, CA--(Marketwire - October 13, 2010) -  Fortinet® (NASDAQ: FTNT) -- a leading network security provider and the worldwide leader of unified threat management (UTM) solutions -- today announced that it will host a live webinar on the "Evolution of the Enterprise Firewall" on Wednesday, October 27, 2010 at 10 a.m. ET.

WHAT: This event will address how enterprises, especially those with sophisticated infrastructures, are facing a challenge in growing their firewall deployments to meet their evolving network security needs. This challenge is primarily due to their legacy firewalls' inability to: address increasingly complex multi-vector threats, which call for complete content protection; meet the higher throughput requirements driven by online applications and new technologies (VoIP, video, etc.); and scale to secure the extended perimeter of the organization, which now includes the distributed and mobile enterprise.

WHO: Guest speaker Chris Christiansen, program vice president of security products and services at IDC, and Patrick Bedwell, vice president of product marketing at Fortinet, will discuss the evolution of the firewall and how today's enterprises are keeping up through unified threat management. This event is recommended for security administrators, enterprise IT administrators and senior-level IT decision-makers.

WHEN: Wednesday, October 27, at 10 a.m. ET.
