AdventNet Joins Fortinet Global Alliance Partner Program

AdventNet's ManageEngine Firewall Analyzer Extends Fortinet's Unified Threat Management Solution

PLEASANTON, CA--(Marketwire - June 20, 2008) - AdventNet, Inc., the leading provider of enterprise IT management & security software, today announced it has joined Fortinet's Global Alliance Partner Program as a technology partner. Fortinet's partner program includes manufacturers, consultancy firms, service providers, global system integrators and other technology firms who complement and extend the unique value proposition of Fortinet's leading unified threat management (UTM) solutions for helping to protect customers against current and evolving threats. Through this partnership, AdventNet's ManageEngine Firewall Analyzer helps Fortinet® to complement its network security technology by monitoring firewall usage and policies.

With the enterprise IT security market getting consolidated, IT managers and security administrators are looking for unified solutions instead of point products. Typically, point solutions also include a firewall and log analysis application, which may either offer inadequate features for log management or does not support the log format of the deployed firewall. As such, IT managers are demanding unified solutions with integrated and interoperable firewall devices and log analysis applications. This market situation makes the AdventNet-Fortinet partnership a step ahead in offering an integrated solution to their customers and a good fit for a unified security information and event management (SIEM) solution.

ManageEngine Firewall Analyzer is an enterprise-class, vendor-neutral software for Firewall, VPN, IDS/IPS and Proxy server log analysis. It enhances the availability and security of the network by continuously collecting, analyzing, and reporting on logs from edge-devices, and helps track intrusion, manage user access, audit traffic and manage network bandwidth efficiently. Firewall Analyzer successfully passed Fortinet's FortiVerified™ process, a rigorous testing process designed to certify interoperability and guarantee proper integration with the FortiGate™ multi-threat network security appliance.

"We are pleased to have AdventNet as a technology partner and member of the Fortinet Global Alliance Partner Program," said Michael Rivers, Vice President of Business Development at Fortinet. "The Firewall Analyzer performs an important function, which now works seamlessly with FortiGate products to provide a robust security solution."

"With Firewall Analyzer interoperating with Fortinet devices, Fortinet strengthens its unified threat management offering. This agreement also testifies to our reputation as the industry's leading SIEM vendor," said Shailesh Kumar, VP Engineering, AdventNet, Inc. "I am sure with the integration of our Firewall log analysis tool there will be a tremendous value-add to Fortinet customers," he added.
