Fortinet has earned NSS recommendations for two of their sandboxing solutions; the FortiSandbox 3000D appliance, and the FortiSandbox Cloud service.

According to Fortinet, the results in NSS Labs’ latest Breach Detection Systems (BDS) Group Test “further demonstrate the effectiveness” of the company’s security fabric, “combining global and local security to protect enterprises and mid-sized organisations against the most advanced cyber threats.”

John Maddison, SVP, Products and Solutions, Fortinet, said “Cybercriminals are evolving new attack strategies at an alarming rate and creating a situation in which the time from breach to full compromise occurs in minutes. This makes rapid detection and automated response a key component for defence.”

He added, We’re honoured to receive NSS Labs recommendations for BDS, which reinforce the effectiveness of our sandbox solutions. These new test results combined with additional NSS Labs recommended components across our security fabric offerings complete the critical steps of converting rapid detection into automatic mitigation to protect against the most advanced threats facing organisations today.”

Vikram Phatak, CEO, NSS Labs, said, “Third-party testing from NSS Labs helps customers to evaluate product options based on real-world testing and the subsequent results. Fortinet has been a regular participant and exceptional performer during our various testing programs. This BDS test focused on the latest, most sophisticated threats so earning two recommendations is quite an accomplishment.  As the only vendor with both a recommended appliance and cloud service, tied to edge firewall and endpoint protection, it also demonstrates the capabilities of their security fabric.”
