The Gartner Magic Quadrant is considered by many as the Holy Grail in the IT world when it comes to ranking hardware, software and services providers. It is a series of market research reports published by industry analyst group, Gartner. The Magic Quadrant ranks companies in two areas: completeness of vision and ability to execute. The vendors are then positioned in the four squares of the quadrant based on their scores. The quadrants include: Leaders, Challengers, Visionaries, and Niche Players.
Our business partner, Fortinet, was recently ranked the highest in the Leaders quadrant for the 2014 Unified Threat Management (UTM) report – both in the ability to execute and in their completeness of vision. According to Gartner, “vendors in this quadrant lead the market in offering new safeguarding features, and in enabling customers to deploy them inexpensively without significantly affecting the end-user experience or increasing staffing burdens.”
Fortinet offers the FortiGate Connected UTM platform, which not only provides the more standard Firewall, VPN, IPS, Anti-malware, URL and Application control features; but also offers more innovative capabilities such as Integrated High-Density Switching and Wireless LAN.
When it comes to protecting your IT infrastructure in today’s fast-paced online world there is no room for error. One intrusion from an unwanted source can be extremely costly to your organization, not only financially, but also causing delays, draining important resources, and negatively impacting your reputation. This is why we partner with industry-leading companies like Fortinet to ensure our clients IT environments are always safeguarded.
