IDC names Fortinet as global UTM market leader

Research firm IDC has ranked Fortinet as the overall leader of the unified threat management (UTM) market for 2006. The US-based company has a 14.4 percent share of the worldwide market over other vendors that include Check Point, Cisco and Sonicwall.

Australia and New Zealand country manager Charlie Cote says this result is a strong marketing tool for partners.

“Our partners are really excited about these stats, as it’s industry recognition of their hard work. I’m not surprised by the figures, as Fortinet has achieved a lot of local success over the past year taking on new products and installing UTM solutions in major universities and other businesses. Partners have been instrumental in many of these deals.”

In a statement IDC US research director Charles Kolodgy says, Fortinet’s growth is fuelled by its ability to provide solutions that deliver true integration of multiple security applications and services.

The IDC report also noted that the UTM segment of the threat management security appliance category reached A$967 million (NZ$1.7 billion) for 2006, with a 42 percent annual growth rate – the fastest of any of the threat management security appliance submarkets.

Malwarebytes shoots the breeze with channel, prospects

A Kumeu, Auckland, winery was the venue for a Malwarebytes event for partner and prospect MSPs - with some straight shooting on the side. The half-day getaway, which featured an archery competition, lunch and wine-tasting aimed at bringing Malwarebytes' local New Zealand and top and prospective MSP partners together to celebrate recent local successes, and discuss the current state of malware in New Zealand. This was also a unique opportunity for local MSPs to learn about how they can get the most out of Malwarebytes' MSP program and offering, as more Kiwi businesses are targeted by malware.
