Fortinet earns 3rd Virus Bulletin VBSpam+ Certification

Fortinet (NASDAQ: FTNT) said the company´s FortiMail messaging security solution has earned its third VBSpam+ certification, the highest achievable honor in comparative testing, in the last seven tests conducted by leading security magazine Virus Bulletin.

Fortinet´s FortiMail solution was recognized with the VBSpam+ award based on the software´s high spam catch rate and zero false positives. Further, this is FortiMail´s 30th consecutive Virus Bulletin Antispam award.

“It is no wonder (FortiMail) developers were confident enough to submit it so early on — it has proved to be one of the better performing products in each test,” said Martijn Grooten, anti-spam test director for Virus Bulletin. “In fact, with no false positives and a high catch rate, Fortinet achieves not just its 30th VBSpam award, but its third VBSpam+ award.”

Virus Bulletin staff tested FortiMail along with 14 other antispam products from vendors around the world for spam catch rates, false negative and positives and low newsletter blocking rates. The test samples consisted of 143,245 emails, 131,030 of which were spam, all relayed in real time. FortiMail earned a total combined score of 99.87 out of a possible 100 and didn´t block a single legitimate email.
