New Delhi, India, January 30, 2014: Fortinet, a player in high-performance network security – has announced the company’s advanced threat protection (ATP) technology (FortiGuard) was named a Top Rated Product in AV-Comparatives’ December 2013 “Summary Report 2013.” The technology, which is used in the company’s network security (FortiGate) and endpoint solution (FortiClient), received a perfect three out of three stars for Proactive Catch Rate, Anti-Phishing, File Detection, Malware Removal and Real World Test. Throughout the year, FortiClient was tested against 21 other antivirus clients from multiple countries for their ability to block malicious software and not block legitimate content.

At the end of every year, AV-Comparatives releases a summary report to comment on the various antivirus products tested over the year and to highlight the high-scoring products of the various tests. This report looks at all the comparative tests of 2013. Comments and conclusions are based on the results shown in the various comparative test reports of AV-Comparatives, as well as from observations made during the tests.

All of the participating applications have been tested for their ability to protect against real-world Internet threats, identify thousands of recent malicious programs, and provide protection without slowing down the PC. Additionally, optional tests evaluated how well the products could remove malware from an infected PC, block new and unknown threats, and protect the user against phishing attacks. While all of the applications under test reached an acceptable level overall, some applications performed better than others, and AV-Comparatives’ awards recognize the best results in each test and overall.

CEO and Founder of AV-Comparatives Andreas Clementi said, “Fortinet FortiClient is aimed at business users and so some aspects of the program, such as the manual, differ from those found in typical consumer rograms. Nonetheless, we found the program to be easy to use on a desktop PC, with important features easily accessible and clear malware alerts that do not require user decisions. We feel the consistent use of browser-based warnings for all Web-based threats is simple and reassuring for the user.”
