Fortinet Announces New Virtual FortiSandbox!

Fortinet® (NASDAQ: FTNT) – a global leader in high-performance network security, today announced that its FortiSandbox, which had a 99 Fortinet_Network_Securitypercent breach detection rate in NSS Labs testing, is now available as a virtual appliance. This flexible form factor will enable customers to easily deploy Advanced Threat Protection (ATP) sandboxes within their infrastructure, in dynamic data centers, and across geographically disperse locations. The latest FortiSandbox-VM release also features a new API for tighter integration with Fortinet’s other security solutions. The first such product to leverage that API is FortiMail, with its new software v5.2, for better defense against email vector attacks. This intelligent Advanced Threat Protection solution, supported by research from FortiGuard Labs, is expected to further accelerate the rapid adoption of Fortinet’s sandboxing beyond the more than 3,000 customers already using the solution to help defend their critical data from today’s highly sophisticated attacks..

“Without a doubt, a groundswell of sophisticated advanced persistent threats and serial high-profile data breaches have made enterprises more security conscious than ever,” said Rajesh Maurya, Country Manager, India & SAARC for Fortinet. “Customers want solutions that are both highly effective and easy to deploy, and FortiSandbox offers them – effective breach detection that leverages the expertise and innovation from FortiGuard Labs, and the flexibility of physical, cloud, and now virtual form factors.”

The new FortiSandbox-VM offering aims to expand advanced threat capabilities to a growing base of enterprise users by increasing flexibility and availability, enabling them to deploy scalable sandbox technology both easily and affordably. Fortinet already offers sandboxing in both cloud and physical appliance form factors.

In addition, FortiSandbox features tighter integrations with an array of established Fortinet security products, including FortiMail, which is now able to hold messages for sandbox inspection and then subsequently act on the results.  This enhancement complements numerous existing integrations between FortiSandbox, FortiGate and other Fortinet products.

The FortiSandbox has been a critical component of our customers’ security strategies for defending against advanced persistent threats and other malicious activity,” said Doug Marlin, partner, sales and marketing for ITG and Fortinet partner. “FortiSandbox in a virtual form factor gives our customers and prospects one more important option when adding Advanced Threat Protection technologies to their network security infrastructure, and allows ITG to deepen its reach and bond into organizations seeking easy-to-manage, cost-effective solutions.
