SUNNYVALE, Calif. -- Fortinet - the pioneer and market leader of Unified Threat Management and only provider of ASIC-accelerated, network-based antivirus firewall systems for real-time network protection - today announced enhanced subscription services for customers to deploy on FortiGateT and FortiMailT systems. The FortiGuardT Security Subscription Services are a family of four complementary services that keep Fortinet systems up-to-date and safe from unwanted and malicious network traffic through continuous and automatic "push" updates that ensure protection against the latest viruses, worms, Trojans, Spyware and other threats - without required network administrative time or oversight.

Under the expanded FortiGuard Subscription Service portfolio, Fortinet delivers customers the following services to help create a comprehensive network security platform:

FortiGuard Antivirus: This automated antivirus and spyware signature and detection engine provides updates, including a complete Wild List database with over 4,500 network threats and full heuristic engine updates for suspicious traffic.

FortiGuard Intrusion Prevention System (IPS): This automated intrusion attack signature and detection engine provides network intrusion updates, including over 1,400 signatures and market leading anomaly, deep packet inspection, content inspection and network activity inspection technology.

FortiGuard Web Filtering: This fully-managed Web content filtering service provides a comprehensive URL ratings database with over 30 million domains, two billion Web pages and 56 user-selectable content categories to keep users safe from offensive content.

FortiGuard Antispam: This fully-managed antispam filtering service integrates with Fortinet's FortiGate and FortiMail systems to reduce spam content at the network perimeter before it hits mail servers, thereby maximizing network traffic performance. The service has been enhanced to include a constantly updated Real-time Blackhole List (RBL) of known spam origins as well as in-depth email screening based on a Uniform Resource Identifier (URI) contained within the message body - this is commonly known as Spam URI Realtime Blackhole Lists (SURBLs).

"With thousands of students and administrators running different applications on our network, we needed a comprehensive security solution to block the continuous networks attacks we receive from outside sources, as well as prohibit the malicious traffic and prohibited content that our users often unknowingly download and view while using the Internet," said Matt Norton, director of technology at Lethbridge School District No. 51. "After looking at several incumbent security vendors' technology, we chose Fortinet's FortiGuard Web Filtering Subscription Service running on the FortiGate-500 system because we were impressed with the network performance, competitive price and comprehensive protection delivered by the integrated Fortinet network security platform."
