FortiClient earns fifth Virus Bulletin 100% award

Fortinet today announced that its FortiClient end-point security software has earned its fifth consecutive Virus Bulletin 100% award for its best-in-class antivirus capabilities. In this test, for antivirus products running on Microsoft Vista, FortiClient earned 100 percent marks in every possible award category. The product was also specifically recognized for its reliability and performance.

Virus Bulletin staff tested FortiClient 3.0 along with 15 other antivirus products for their detection rates, lack of false positives and speed of scanning. This latest VB 100% award adds to Fortinet’s impressive and unmatched portfolio of technology certifications and accolades — including five VB 100% awards, two NSS certifications (IPS, UTM) and eight ICSA certifications (firewall, antivirus, IPSec, SSL, Network IPS, client antivirus detection, cleaning and antispyware).

“It is imperative that security vendors are prepared to protect their users against attacks leveraging potential Microsoft Vista security holes,” said Michael Xie, Fortinet founder, CTO and vice president of engineering. “Receiving such high marks on the Virus Bulletin 100% Microsoft Vista test further proves that we are able to anticipate the needs of our customers and provide the malware protection that they require.”
