by | Aug 12, 2014

August 12, 2014—SUNNYVALE, Calif.,—(BUSINESS WIRE)— August 12, 2014—(BUSINESS WIRE)—Recently recognized in Gartner’s Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Network Firewalls*, Hillstone Networks, a leading provider of enterprise network firewall solutions, today announced that the company has been positioned in the Magic Quadrant for Unified Threat Management by Gartner, Inc**. In its report, Gartner analysts Jeremy D’Hoinne, Adam Hils, Greg Young wrote, “Buyers should focus on performance when many security functions are enabled, and on the skill set of the associated channel partner.”

Hillstone Networks provides solutions that it feels are in alignment with Gartner’s recommendation. Performance and feature parity no longer have to be mutually exclusive. As Gartner indicates, “security buyers should instead evaluate UTM devices based on the controls they will actually use, the performance they will get for those features, and the quality of vendor and channel (and managed services) support that is available.”

“We are very proud to be named in the Magic Quadrant for Unified Threat Management for our UTM products in our broad network security line of products,” said Lingling Zhang, vice president of marketing at Hillstone Networks, “for Hillstone, we believe it is a testament to our focus on executing on our vision of bringing intelligent and adaptive network security to today’s data center.”
