*UKHotViewsExtra* Fortinet goes from strength to strength

Fortinet’s FY19 performance saw the company make big double-digit gains in both revenue and billings on a global basis, with a temporary blip in UK turnover attributed to election paralysis and Brexit uncertainty failing to dampen the overwhelmingly positive picture in the EMEA (which saw revenue grow 19% year on year), APAC (up 22%) and Americas (up 23%).

The hybrid and multi-cloud emphasis is nothing new, but combining network security and SD-WAN within a single hardware appliance built on custom ASICs has delivered a significant competitive advantage for Fortinet just as rival security hardware companies see that side of their businesses shrink as they transition customers into virtualised solutions.*UKHotViewsExtra* Fortinet goes from strength to strength
