Hillstone delivers the right solutions for security-conscious SMB organizations

Hillstone Networks, a leading provider of network security solutions, today announced it has once again been positioned in Gartner, Inc.’s “Magic Quadrant for Unified Threat Management,” for the third consecutive year. Gartner defines the unified threat management (UTM) market as “multifunction network security products used by small or midsize businesses (SMBs).”

“We are pleased to receive continued recognition in the UTM Magic Quadrant. We believe it validates our vision to provide 360 view and control of any network, small or large; physical or virtual. We continue to build on our vision to offer robust network security solutions for our customers, including the SMB customer,” said Lingling Zhang, Vice President of Product and Marketing, at Hillstone Networks.

The Hillstone UTM solutions are in keeping with Gartner’s guidance that SMB users should evaluate UTM offerings based on their specific needs and requirements; the actual performance delivered in conjunction with the added features; along with the availability of technical support.

Hillstone has been recognized for the strength of its vision and execution to provide security for enterprises, large and small:

  • Hillstone offers an all-inclusive licensing option that makes it easier for SMB buyers to purchase the solutions.
  • Hillstone offers virtual platforms – CloudEdge and CloudHive – to help SMBs who are heavily virtualized.
  • A robust reporting dashboard provides the right visibility and forensics into any security incidents for SMBs for maximum protection.
  • Application identification supports more than 3,000 applications with the largest reach for application for SMBs.

We feel our continued recognition and presence in the Magic Quadrant for UTM illustrates Hillstone’s capabilities to serve the SMB market with the appropriate security solution to meet their business needs.
