Fortinet gets excellence award from Hughes

Fortinet said it has received a 2013 Supplier Excellence Award from Hughes Network Systems, LLC, the leader in broadband satellite solutions and a provider of managed network services.

The honor recognizes the cooperation between the two companies that led to the development of the successful Hughes HR4X00 Branch Gateway, a key enabling platform that powers the HughesON Managed Network Services from Hughes.

Fortinet´s FortiGate platform is powered by its second generation FortiASIC-SoC2, which combines general purpose processing power with Fortinet´s custom ASIC technology into a single chip, simplifying the overall appliance design while more than doubling the general processing capacity of its predecessor, the FortiASIC SoC. The architectural advancements of the FortiASIC-SoC2 include 109m transistors and the use of more advanced semiconductor technologies and design, which enable enterprise-grade security performance at a breakthrough price point.

Hughes Network Systems is a provider of satellite broadband for home and office, delivering innovative network technologies, managed services, and solutions for enterprises and governments globally. The company is owned by EchoStar Corp. (NASDAQ: SATS), a premier global provider of satellite operations and digital TV solutions. For additional information, visit
