SANTA CLARA, CA -- Fortinet – a provider of network protection systems and the only provider of ASIC-powered, network-based antivirus solutions – announced today that its Network Protection Gateway (NPG) platform has earned Internet Protocol Security, or IPSec, certification from independent testing lab ICSA. This certification assures that Fortinet’s FortiGate™ NPGs provide airtight security for virtual private networks (VPNs) and can interoperate with other certified IPSec-compliant products. With this certification of the FortiGate 300, Fortinet becomes the only provider of a hardware-accelerated gateway device that is ICSA-certified for both IPSec and antivirus functions. This empowers the FortiGate Network Protection Gateway with a number of unique capabilities: For example, traffic from VPN tunnels can be screened in real time for viruses and worms, without impacting network performance, thereby preventing the spread of attacks that infect remote offices, mobile workers or extranet partners. “ICSA Labs spent an exhaustive amount of time performing hands-on security, cryptographic and interoperability testing of the Fortinet platform with the ultimate goal of determining whether or not it provides the security services intended and that it meets our stringent criteria,” said George Japak, vice president at ICSA Labs. “Earning this certification is great validation of Fortinet’s robust security capabilities in surpassing superior levels of quality, reliability and trustworthiness.” Fortinet Inc.
