<p>Sydney, AUSTRALIA, July 20, 2006 – Fortinet – the pioneer and leading provider of multi-threat security solutions – today announced the appointment of VoIP Pty Ltd as Fortinet’s Managed Security Services Provider (MSSP) partner in Australia. VoIP will also sell Fortinet solutions directly to customers.</p>
<p>VoIP Pty Ltd is a professional services and communications integrator focusing on the next generation of voice, data and Internet technologies. The company maintains more than 100 staff operating from a head office in Sydney, and three other offices in Melbourne, Brisbane and Perth.</p>
<p>VoIP’s CEO, Mike Harte, said: “Fortinet’s technology will help us bring high-end security to the SME market via our expanding nationwide MSSP network. Our engineers did an extensive analysis of a wide range of unified threat management (UTM) products and we were most impressed with the range of features, performance and maturity of Fortinet’s market-leading FortiGate™ solutions.”</p>
<p>VoIP has secured an early MSSP contract with a major health sector organisation. The Fortinet solution that was sold incorporates four FortiGate-200A security appliances, two FortiGate-800s, and one FortiAnalyzer™ 800 for the collection and analysis of log and event data from the FortiGate systems.</p>
<p>Fortinet’s FortiGate-800 features tri-speed Ethernet ports, network segmentation and granular security for multiple zones. The product also supports high-availability configurations, and is an ideal solution for high performance antivirus and content filtering gateway, or as a complete network protection solution leveraging firewall, VPN, and IDP capabilities. Fortinet’s FortiGate-200A, featuring dual WAN links, dual DMZ interfaces and an integrated 4 port switch, is ideally suited for small- and medium-sized businesses, branch and satellite offices. All FortiGate systems are kept up-to-date automatically through FortiGuard Subscription Services that ensure protection against the latest viruses, worms, Trojans, and other threats — around the clock, and around the world.</p>
<p>The FortiAnalyzer family of real-time network logging, analysing, and reporting systems is a series of dedicated hardware solutions that securely aggregate and analyse log data from FortiGate security appliances, providing network administrators with a comprehensive view of network usage and security information,</p>
<p>Hansen Chang, Fortinet’s Vice President for Asia-Pacific, said: “We were very impressed with VoIP’s network of 150 resellers throughout Australia, and expertise in network and security solution implementations. I expect that VoIP will expand our capabilities in the Australia market significantly.”</p>
