What is the Gartner Magic Quadrant?

The Gartner Magic Quadrant is a culmination of research in a specific market and can help you quickly ascertain how well providers are performing against Gartner’s market view. 

Fortinet Gartner Performance Summary 

Fortinet is a Leader in this Magic Quadrant. In addition to firewalls, Fortinet’s portfolio includes capabilities such as EDR, email security, web application firewall/web application and API protection (WAF/WAAP), network access control (NAC), deception, and identity and access management (IAM). 

Recent updates include the introduction of security operations center (SOC) as a service, SASE and ZTNA product offerings. Fortinet has also introduced enhancements to its URL filtering and advanced threat detection features. Additionally, it has introduced integration between network operations center (NOC) and SOC operations in the Fabric Management Center. 

Fortinet Strengths Outlined by Gartner 

Advanced networking: Fortinet is a leading provider of networking and SD-WAN capabilities in the WAN edge market. FortiGate often replaces branch office routers and can manage Fortinet switches and wireless access points, which makes it able to consolidate and manage branch office network infrastructures.  

Product strategy: The platform approach of Fortinet Security Fabric continues to build an ecosystem of integrated components. Out-of-the-box integration and automation is available across much of the Fortinet security and network portfolio, resulting in reduced operational effort and fewer misconfigurations. Fortinet’s firewall is integrated with web, cloud, email, CASB, deception, endpoint and NAC switches and wireless access points, all of which are managed from a single console. 

Product: Fortinet recently introduced FortiSASE with SD-WAN and FWaaS. It also offers a stand-alone identity-based segmentation product. 

Customer experience: Gartner continues to see lower pricing as the primary reason to shortlist Fortinet’s firewalls. The vendor’s competitive price/performance ratio, combined with its simple pricing models, highlights its value and allows for realistic estimation of the total cost of ownership (TCO).
