SANTA CLARA, Calif. -- Fortinet -- the only provider of ASIC-powered, network-based antivirus firewall systems for real-time network protection -- announced today that Gold's Gym International, the largest gym company in the world, has selected the FortiGate(TM) Antivirus Firewall to improve security and reduce operational costs. The Fortinet technology will enable Gold's Gym to modernize its network topology for three corporate headquarters (California, Texas and Virginia) that used conventional, legacy firewalls. The Fortinet implementation entails a full nationwide deployment with FortiGate model 100s designed to increase user productivity with integrated, hardware-based, antivirus capabilities in addition to high-performance firewall and VPN functions. Gold's will also use Fortinet's Remote VPN Client to provide secure connectivity for mobile workers and remote administration. "I found that the Fortinet platform met my needs and much more at about what it was going to cost in just engineering services for typical firewall products -- and the installation took less than half the time that I'd budgeted," said Kurt Koenig, IT manager for Venice, Calif.-based Gold's Gym. "I was able to connect our three corporate sites, and associated enterprise branch offices, using the VPN capabilities of the FortiGate 100s and give our users a way to collaborate with their counterparts all across the country. I'm also pleased that the FortiGate units will screen our VPNs and our Web traffic for viruses and worms without impacting our network performance -- something that no other product we looked at could do."Fortinet Inc.
