Fortinet announced that the company’s FortiGate-3140B next-generation firewall has completed ICSA Labs’ next-generation firewall evaluation.
Next-generation firewalls (NGFW) provide an extended level of access control by monitoring network communications at the application layer. This includes granular application identification and control, user-based authentication and identification and protection from botnets and sophisticated malware.
“When considering the purchase of a critical network security device like a next-generation firewall, it's essential to evaluate a vendor that's been validated by a globally-recognized, independent, third-party testing company, such as ICSA Labs," said Patrick Bedwell, vice president of products at Fortinet. “Our FortiGate-3140B next-generation firewall completed the NGFW evaluation by ICSA Labs, the first testing organization to provide a standard way for customers to compare products claiming to offer NGFW protection and that’s important.”
Fortinet’s FortiGate platform is already certified under ICSA Labs’ Network Firewall – Corporate testing program, which tests a product’s fundamental network firewall functionality. The additional next-generation firewall evaluation takes the existing certification to an advanced level of technology verification. ICSA Labs evaluated these essential features and reported the following results:
User-Based Authentication: 100%
User Protection: 97.72%
Malware Protection: 100%
URL Filtering: 91.25%
Blocking via Destination: 100%
Attacks Targeting Applications: 97.37%
Server Protection: 97.22%
False Positives None
“Fortinet has been submitting its network security products to ICSA Labs for certification for the past 10 years, consistently meeting the high standards set by us, and FortiGate-3140B proved to be no exception,” said Brian Monkman, ICSA Labs’ Perimeter Security Programs manager.
ICSA Labs Certifications
In addition to ICSA Labs’ newest next-generation firewall evaluation, Fortinet also currently holds ICSA Labs certifications for Anti-Virus, IPSec, Network Firewalls, Network IPS, SSL-TLS and Web Application Firewalls.
