Fortinet's FortiGate-51B appliance is designed to provide security and high performance for small and midsize enterprises, remote offices and branch offices. The embedded FortiOS operating system offers midsize customers a full suite of security services in one hardened platform, including antimalware, intrusion prevention, Web filtering, firewall and traffic shaping and IPSec/SSL VPN. "We're interested in security products and [Fortinet's] name is prevalent. [These kinds of products] make it less complicated when security is not your business," said Robert Bence, vice president of technology for Southwest Credit Systems, based in Plano, Texas. "I can take resources not applicable to us and put them to projects that are."
