Market Watch reports that Fortinet (FTNT) announced the release of the FortiMail-3000C messaging security appliance. The appliance supports up to 50,000 users with a single system and is ideally suited for large enterprises and application service and software-as-a-service (SaaS) providers, especially those subject to PCI/DSS or HIPAA regulations in retail, payment, financial and healthcare industries.
“‘In these budget-tightening times, total-cost-of-ownership is a crucial selection criteria for messaging security solutions,’ said Michael Xie, founder, CTO and vice president of engineering at Fortinet. ‘We’ve paid close attention to this market dynamic which is why we don’t use expensive and complex per-seat licensing models. And, unlike competing offerings that frequently cobble together third-party antivirus or other protection schemes, we offer customers real-time updates directly from our FortiGuard threat prevention services.'”
