NSS Labs

Leading organizations in every industry turn to NSS Labs, the leading cyber security product research, testing, and advisory source.

DCIPS 2018

NSS Labs' Data Center Intrusion Prevention Systems (DCIPS) focuses on data center environments, especially vulnerabilities commonly found in servers. The Security Value Map (SVM) shows that FortiGate IPS achieved the highest cumulative blocking rate at 98.73% and the lowest TCO at $3 per protected Mbps. Fortinet builds world-class IPS appliances and another "Recommended" IPS rating from NSS Labs proves this.

Advanced Endpoint Protection (AEP) Test 2018

The NSS Labs AEP group test evaluates products for security effectiveness, performance, and total cost of ownership (TCO). These products include endpoint security technologies that combine the protective capabilities of anti-threat products with the detection, investigation, and prevention capabilities of endpoint security products. FortiClient with integrated FortiSandbox earned a "Recommended" rating with average security effectiveness of over 97.3%, zero false positives, and low TCO.

Breach Detection Systems Test 2017

According to Verizon's 2017 Data Breach Investigations Report, 99% of malware is delivered by email and the web. In the NSS Breach Detection System 2017 test, newly introduced FortiSandbox 2000E blocked 100% of advanced malware delivered over these two vectors and 99% overall offered at the lowest TCO, earning the NSS Labs "Recommended" rating.

Breach Prevention Systems Test 2017

NSS Labs introduced a new group test, BPS focused on detecting and blocking exploits, advanced malware, and evasions. This helps validate the advanced threat response cycle of prevent-detect-mitigate across a number of threat vectors including web, email, and endpoint. Fortinet's Security Fabric consisting of FortiSandbox, FortiGate, FortiMail, and FortiClient integrated together, earned a Recommended award by achieving a block rate of 99.6% and offering the lowest 3-year TCO.

NGFW 2017

FortiGate 3200D and 600D enterprise firewalls both offer a winning combination of security effectiveness, performance, and value, earning Fortinet its fourth consecutive NSS Labs NGFW Recommended rating. Fortinet excelled in continuous live testing, blocking 99.71% of exploits used in active attack campaigns every day and delivered the highest performance scores with 18.5 Gbps throughput and an average latency of 4.6 microseconds, regardless of packet size and including real-world traffic processing.

Next Generation IPS Test 2017

NSS Labs' NGIPS test is the most extensive IPS test, including several tests not conducted for DCIPS, such as live drive-by-exploits (100% block rate for Fortinet), exploits against web target types, application ID and evasions (also 100% block rate for Fortinet). The FortiGate 600D is a world-class IPS appliance, achieving "Recommended" status again with an overall 99.72% block rate.

WAF 2017

The FortiWeb 3000E was put up against 5 leading WAF competitors fairing well with one of the highest security ratings.

Next Generation Firewall Group Test 2016

NSS Labs' Next Generation Firewall (NGFW) real-world testing reveals that Fortinet delivers a winning combination of security, network performance, and total cost of ownership (TCO). Fortinet was nearly perfect; scoring 99.6% in overall security effectiveness. The FortiGate 3200D was rated by NSS at 19 Gbps, 37% above its data sheet specifications, with excellent TCO where the value increased based on actual performance compared to the claimed specifications.

ICSA Certified for Advanced Threat Defense

ICSA Labs is currently an independent division of Verizon Business providing resources for research, intelligence, certification and testing of products, including anti-virus, firewall, IPsec VPN, cryptography, SSL VPN, network IPS, anti-spyware and PC firewall products.

ICSA Certified for Advanced Threat Defense

With data breaches continuing to make headlines, new products and solutions designed to detect and prevent the advanced attacks often at the root of these breaches have emerged. To help organizations assess the effectiveness of these new offerings, ICSA Labs, an independent division of Verizon (author of the annual Data Breach Investigations Report or DBIR), recently introduced a new independent, Advanced Threat Defense certification.

ICSA Labs Certified: Antivirus, Corporate Firewall, IPsec, NIPS, SSL-TLS, and Web Application Firewall

FortiGate and FortiWeb products are evaluated against ICSA criteria in 6 popular Certification programs. ICSA Labs manages and sponsors security consortia that provides a forum for intelligence sharing among the leading vendors of security products. In addition, ICSA Labs publishes surveys, security industry studies, and buyer's guides for computer security products.

Virus Bulletin - VBSpam

For more than seven years, VBSpam has been conducting continual independent comparisons of antispam solutions. Fortinet FortiMail has participated in roughly 40 VBSpam tests, including six in 2015, so that organizations can see the level of effectiveness they can expect in real-world environments. FortiMail has routinely earned the highest VBSpam+ rating, with results similar to the test excerpt here.
