Fortinet’s Solution for Small and Medium Sized Businesses (SMBs)

Today’s small and medium businesses are dealing with many challenges and opportunities. Growing business is obviously their number one priority. Business applications need to be available from anywhere, 24/7 and from any device. As technology early adopters (BYOD, Cloud Services, Mobility), SMB have to deal with threats associated to agility.

Faster infrastructure and greater security are “must have” to sustain their growing business but the time and resources which SMB can allocate to this need are limited.


Small Office Technology Needs Are Increasing: To support employee mobility, many small offices are adding wireless and enabling BYOD—technologies that have traditionally been confined to larger enterprises.

Small Businesses Are a Target: According to the Verizon Data Breach Incident Report, data breaches were more common in small than large organizations (25% vs. 20%, with 50% from size unknown).

Large Market Opportunity:

  • IDC predicts that the total UTM market size will be around $5.3 billion by 2017.
  • The Enterprise Wireless LAN market is expected to reach $7.09 billion by 2018, according to Gartner.
  • Switching is already a mature $21+ billion market.
  • Newer technology areas, like sandboxing to detect advanced threats ($2.5 billion in 2017), continue to offer additional opportunities.
