Terenine Technology Solutions Standardizes on Fortinet for Cloud-Based MSSP Offering

Fortinet's Multi-Threat Security Appliances Enable Service Provider to Segment Customer Networks Using Virtual Domains

SUNNYVALE, CA--(Marketwire - Aug 10, 2011) - Fortinet® (NASDAQ: FTNT) -- a leading network security provider and the worldwide leader of unified threat management (UTM) solutions -- today announced that Terenine Technology Solutions has deployed Fortinet's flagship product line, FortiGate®, throughout its cloud-based managed security services network and its internal network.

Based in Chattanooga, TN, Terenine(SM) helps businesses find perfect alignment between business goals and technology. Terenine offers a full array of innovative technology solutions tailored to the customer's environment, including virtualization and cloud-based services, colocation, disaster recovery, backup and tiered storage, applications development and professional services.

"We chose Fortinet over all the other vendors because we needed to be able to create separate firewall and monitoring rules for our clients and we needed the flexibility of being able to add security functionalities as needed for our customers," said David Glenn, Chief Technology Officer & vice president, Enterprise Operations at Terenine. "An added benefit is that the FortiGate product line allows us to deploy the appliances in high availability mode to help ensure uptime. Its flexibility allows us to run our business efficiently, safely and meet the needs of customers."

Terenine has deployed four FortiGate-5001A appliances in high availability (HA) mode throughout the network. Two are deployed at Terenine's Data Center 1 and two more are at the Terevault(SM) location. All four appliances are deployed in active/passive mode to help ensure high availability and to help provide network security functionalities such as firewall, antivirus, and intrusion prevention, as specific external and internal customers need.

Fortinet delivers virtualized network security through its Virtual Domain (VDOM) technology and offers the ability to create up to 250 independent security domains on a single FortiGate-5001A security appliance. Network security virtualization, using Fortinet's VDOM feature, provides a separately provisioned and managed security domain for each of Terenine's customers, giving Terenine administrators flexibility in policy configuration and traffic management capabilities for each customer.

FortiGate-200B appliances are also deployed in HA mode at multiple locations, and in the TereCluster(SM), which is a portable, highly available data center. The FortiGate-200B appliances are helping to provide a virtual private network tunnel between customer sites and Terenine facilities as well as antivirus and intrusion prevention (IPS) protection.

Additionally, Terenine has deployed a FortiAnalyzer appliance to help with threat analysis. The FortiAnalyzer is allowing Terenine to produce on-demand networking reports for its customers.

"MSSPs are constantly struggling with offering a secure, network security solution that enables their customers the flexibility that they need when it comes to security functionality," said Drew Savage, director MSS Strategy and Business Development at Fortinet. "Fortinet is a perfect fit for cloud deployments such as this. The FortiGate appliances allow the functionality, as needed by the customer, while also offering superior network analysis and the ability to segment customer networks without multiple appliances having to be deployed."
