Business Overview

We provide network security solutions, which enable broad, integrated and high performance protection against dynamic security threats while simplifying the IT security infrastructure for enterprises, service providers and governmental entities worldwide. Since inception through March 31, 2013, we shipped over 1,150,000 appliances via more than 15,000 channel partners to more than 160,000 end-customers worldwide, including a majority of the 2012 Fortune Global 100.

Our core Unified Threat Management ("UTM")/Next Generation Firewall ("NGFW") product line of FortiGate physical and virtual appliances ships with a set of security and networking capabilities, including firewall, VPN, application control, anti-malware, intrusion prevention, Web filtering, anti-spam and WAN acceleration functionality. We derive a substantial majority of product sales from our FortiGate appliances, which range from the FortiGate-20, designed for small businesses, to the FortiGate-5000 series for large enterprises, telecommunications carriers, and service providers. Our UTM/NGFW solution also includes our FortiGuard security subscription services, which end-customers can subscribe to in order to

obtain access to dynamic updates to intrusion prevention, application control, anti-malware, Web filtering, vulnerability management and anti-spam functionality included in our appliances. End-customers can also choose to purchase FortiCare technical support services for our products. End-customers also often use FortiManager and FortiAnalyzer products in conjunction with a FortiGate deployment to provide centralized management, analysis and reporting capabilities. We complement our core FortiGate product line with other appliances and software that offer additional protection from security threats to other critical areas of the enterprise, such as messaging, Web application firewalls, databases, protection against denial of service attacks (DDoS), endpoint security for employee computers and mobile devices and wireless access point. Although sales of these complementary products have grown in recent quarters, these products still represent less than 10% of our total revenue.

In March 2013, we completed the acquisition of Coyote Point Systems, Inc., a provider of application delivery controllers, as part of our strategy to expand our product portfolio.
