The Fortinet Security Fabric brings together endpoint security, zero trust access and network security in one unified portfolio with solutions that seamlessly follow and protect your clients from the office desk to the kitchen table, to the hotel room with public WiFi — all while providing a consistent level of enterprise-grade protection.

Providing security solutions designed to protect your clients while they work from anywhere is a lucrative business move for channel providers as hybrid work has become the norm. Gartner says the ideal approach to doing this is with a “cybersecurity mesh architecture,” or an ecosystem of integrated security tools, which can reduce financial loss from a cyberattack by 90 percent. This is the exact foundation of the Fortinet Security Fabric. “Our Work-From-Anywhere value proposition is resonating with customers across all sales verticals. It’s truly one of the fastest-growing segments of our portfolio and it’s one of the only true integrated offerings on the market from a work-from-anywhere perspective,” says Aaron Griffith, senior director of channels at Fortinet.

The Fortinet Security Fabric brings together endpoint security, zero trust access and network security in one unified portfolio with solutions that seamlessly follow and protect your clients from the office desk to the kitchen table, to the hotel room with public WiFi — all while providing a consistent level of enterprise-grade protection.

“The FortiGate and FortiGate-VM security platforms (are) going to provide advanced security at a campus, a datacenter, a branch and even cloud environments,” says Griffith. “Endpoint technologies like FortiClient, FortiEDR, and FortiXDR (are) going to secure your remote workers and their devices. And then ZTNA and technologies like our SASE are going to control and secure access to applications and secure the remote worker.”

Partners don’t have to struggle to get started. Fortinet makes it easy for partners to gain competency and capability through its programmatic specialization designations to go to market quickly. “This is a framework that we designed to help partners define a solution offering, create efficiencies in their professional and managed services motions and ultimately maximize profitability,” says Griffith.

And Fortinet is 100 percent channel go-to-market and never competes with its partners at the point of sale.

Killexams : Cyberattackers Selling Access to Networks Compromised via accurate Fortinet Flaw

Fortinet customers that have not yet patched a critical authentication bypass vulnerability that the vendor disclosed in October in multiple versions of its FortiOS, FortiProxy, and FortiSwitch Manager technologies now have an additional reason to do so quickly.

At least one threat actor, operating on a Russian Dark Web forum, has begun selling access to multiple networks compromised via the vulnerability (CVE-2022-40684), and more could follow suit soon. Researchers from Cyble who spotted the threat activity described the victim organizations as likely using unpatched and outdated versions of FortiOS.

Selling Access to Compromised Networks

Dhanalakshmi PK, senior director of malware and research intelligence at Cyble, says the company's available intelligence indicates the threat actor might have access to five major organizations via the vulnerability. Cyble's analysis showed the attacker attempting to add their own public key to the admin user's account on the compromised systems.

"An attacker can update or add a valid public SSH key to a targeted account on a system and can then typically gain complete access to that system," Dhanalakshmi says. "Additionally, the threat actor could launch other attacks against the rest of the IT environment with the foothold and knowledge gained through exploiting this vulnerability."

Cyble said a scan it conducted showed more than 100,000 Internet-exposed FortiGate firewalls, a substantial number of which are likely exploitable because they remain unpatched against the vulnerability

Fortinet publicly disclosed CVE-2022-40684 on Oct. 10, a few days after privately notifying customers of affected products about the threat. The vulnerability essentially gives an unauthenticated attacker a way to gain full control of an affected Fortinet product by sending it specially crafted HTTP and HTTPS requests. Security researchers have described the vulnerability as easy to find and trivial to exploit because all that an attacker needs to do is gain access to the management interface of a vulnerable system.

Popular Target for Attackers

When Fortinet disclosed the vulnerability, it urged customers to immediately update to patched versions of the affected products and warned of active exploit activity targeting the flaw. It also urged companies that could not update to immediately disable HTTPS administration on their vulnerable Internet-facing Fortinet products. The US Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) promptly listed the flaw its catalog of known exploited vulnerabilities and gave federal civilian agencies until Nov. 1, 2022, to address the issue.

Much of the concern stemmed from the popularity of Fortinet products — and technologies from other vendors in the same network edge category — among threat actors. Soon after Fortinet disclosed the flaw, proof-of-concept code for exploiting it became publicly available, and security vendors reported large-scale scanning activity targeting the flaw. The number of unique IP addresses targeting the flaw soared in a matter of days from the single digits to more than 40.

And that number has grown. James Horseman, exploit developer at Horizon3ai, a security vendor that did much of the initial research around the vulnerability, says the number of unique IPs currently targeting the Fortinet flaw has risen to 112, according to data from GreyNoise, which tracks malicious scanning activity on the Internet.

"These Fortinet devices are typically Internet-facing for corporations and are seldom monitored," adds Zach Hanley, chief attack engineer at Horizon3ai. "This combination makes it great for sustained initial access into a network for threat actors who are looking to conduct reconnaissance, deploy ransomware, steal data, etc."

Threat actors have hammered away in similar fashion at other Fortinet flaws for the same reason. Notable examples include CVE-2018-13379, CVE-2020-12812, and CVE-2019-5591, a set of three flaws that Iran-backed threat groups were observed exploiting in numerous attacks. In April 2021, the FBI and CISA warned of other advanced persistent threat groups exploiting the same set of flaws in attacks against organizations in the US and elsewhere.

Killexams : Fortinet: Looking Ahead To 2023
Cyber Security Ransomware Email Phishing Encrypted Technology, Digital Information Protected Secured


Investment Thesis

Fortinet's (NASDAQ:FTNT) revenue growth rates could be set up to slow down. And if that's the case, investors are left with a choice. Is paying up 37x next year's non-GAAP EPS all that compelling? And I don't know the answer to this question.

I guess it depends on whether the Fed deems it necessary to stop raising rates as quickly. But even this line of thought illustrates that Fortinet's valuation isn't that amazing.

To help me drive my point, here's a quote from the earnings call that lays out everything investors need to know,

[...] we remain on track to achieve all of our medium-term financial targets from our May 2022 Analyst Day, including $10 billion in billings and $8 billion in revenue in 2025, each representing a 22% three-year CAGR from the midpoint of our 2022 guidance.

FTNT Analyst Day 2022

FTNT Analyst Day 2022

Management clearly stated that it's going to exit 2022 growing at close to 32% CAGR and that in the next 3 years its CAGR gets down to around 22%. Even if there's a substantial amount of conservatism baked in, we are nevertheless forced to question, what's a fair growth rate for 2023?

What's Happening Right Now?

Investor trepidation is now starting to creep into valuations. For a long period of time, cyber security companies were deemed to be recession-proof. Not only are investors now a lot more skeptical, but it also appears that even ''recession resistant'' could now involve substantial qualifiers around it.

To get to my point, consider what Fortinet's CEO stated on the call,

We expect fourth quarter ending backlog to be relatively consistent with the third quarter backlog as we are seeing early signs of a transition back to more normalized customer buying behaviors.

Within that paragraph, we see the news that investors didn't want to hear, ''more normalized customer buying behavior''.

And that's a theme that is percolating throughout enterprise tech. Tech had been seen as the trade to be in, during a recession. And within tech, cyber security was seen as a safe haven. And now? Well, perhaps this trade became a tiny bit too crowded for what it is.

That being said, to be clear, it's absolutely not all bad news when it comes to Fortinet.

Revenue Growth Rates Remain Attractive

FTNT revenue growth rates

FTNT revenue growth rates

Fortinet's revenue growth rates continue to point to a mid-30% CAGR. For a cybersecurity firm that has seen its share price mostly move down for the bulk of 2022, one has to question, whether investors may not be too negative about Fortinet's prospects?

FTNT revenue consensus

FTNT revenue consensus

For their part, analysts remain positively bullish on Fortinet's prospects. Even as cyber security and enterprise SaaS companies generally speak of the tough macro environment, Fortinet's analysts continue to revise their revenue estimate outlook upwards.

With this in mind, let's discuss one blemish in the bull thesis.

Capital Allocation, Needle Moving?

Consider this:

During the three and nine months ended September 30, 2022, Fortinet repurchased 10.2 million and 36.0 million shares of its common stock, respectively, at an average price of $49.15 and $55.37 per share, respectively, and for an aggregate purchase price of $500.0 million and $1.99 billion.

And now see if you see a pattern here:

  • Q1 2022: $691 million (average price $61)
  • Q2 2022: $800 million (average price $55)
  • Q3 2022: $500 million (average price $49)

It appears to me that as the share price is moving lower, this coincides with the total amount deployed towards share repurchases coming lower. That being said, there's still a further $530 million left for share repurchases. So it could be the case that these share repurchases could end up being accretive to long-term shareholders.

Altogether, as we look ahead to Q4 2022 this translates into the total share count ending the year down 4.2% y/y.

FTNT Stock Valuation -- 37x non-GAAP EPS

The problem that investors are facing right now, is that there's so much uncertainty over what will FTNT's 2023 revenue growth rates normalize at? On the one hand, we have management openly stating that customer behavior is normalizing.

On the other hand, FTNT's GAAP margins are extremely enticing. In fact, as a point of reference, Q3 2022 reported 23.1% GAAP margins, an increase of 390 basis points from 19.2% reported in the same period a year ago.

On yet the third hand, we have to highlight that the bulk of the revenue growth is coming from its Product business line. And many investors are skeptical that Product revenues will continue to be a growing TAM over the next few years.

The Bottom Line

Optically Fortinet is cheap. Why? Because it has GAAP earnings. Something that many tech companies haven't figured out yet, how to get their business to report GAAP profits.

On the other hand, a large proportion of its growth is not coming from its Service unit, but instead from its Product business. As a point of reference, two years ago, Fortinet's product business made up approximately 34% of its total revenues. While for its most accurate quarter, its Product business makes up 41% of its total revenues.

So, it could be that soon 50% of Fortinet's business could be coming from its Product business, with a very limited TAM.

Killexams : Fortinet widens Sunnyvale tech footprint with new real estate deal

SUNNYVALE — Fortinet has widened its shopping spree for Sunnyvale sites where the tech company can undertake future projects to expand its Silicon Valley footprint.

All told, Fortinet has spent slightly more than $127 million buying up an array of properties near and next to its headquarters in Sunnyvale, a Bay Area News Group review of numerous public records shows.

In the most accurate deal, Fortinet paid $3.3 million for a nondescript building at 140 San Lazaro Ave. at the corner of Kifer Road in Sunnyvale, according to documents filed on Nov. 29 with the Santa Clara County Recorder’s Office.

Fortinet obtained the building in an all-cash deal, the county property records show.

Starting in 2012 and including the most accurate deal, Fortinet has spent roughly $127.3 million on an array of sites in Sunnyvale.

The slew of Sunnyvale properties that Fortinet has been purchasing over the past decade are mostly unassuming industrial or commercial sites.

Along the way, Fortinet built and opened a new headquarters building at 909 Kifer Road in Sunnyvale. The new headquarters is on a site that Fortinet purchased during its real estate buying efforts.

The cybersecurity company has also been assembling properties in Union City in a fashion that could enable Fortinet to create an East Bay outpost. Numerous tech workers commute from the East Bay to Silicon Valley’s job hubs.

In Union City, Fortinet has spent at least $166.9 million purchasing properties in the East Bay municipality, Alameda County public records show.

Killexams : Fortinet Secure SD-WAN Delivers 300% ROI Over Three Years and Payback in Eight Months, New Independent Study Finds

Fortinet, Inc.

Feedback from large enterprises with more than $1 billion in revenue and up to 8,500 sites highlights the value of Fortinet Secure SD-WAN to reduce network disruption, mitigate risks, and Excellerate time to issue resolution

SUNNYVALE, Calif., Dec. 07, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) --

John Maddison, EVP of Products and CMO at Fortinet
“Large enterprises around the world continue to turn to Fortinet to achieve their digital acceleration goals with solutions that converge networking and security. We’re pleased that Forrester has quantified both the network and security benefits of Fortinet Secure SD-WAN, which will advance our commitment to helping customers make informed decisions with validated solutions.”

News Summary

Fortinet® (NASDAQ: FTNT), a global leader in broad, integrated, and automated cybersecurity solutions, today announced a business benefit analysis of Fortinet Secure SD-WAN and its ability to support large enterprises by delivering 300% ROI over three years and payback in eight months.

As one of the top SD-WAN vendors, Fortinet commissioned a Total Economic Impact™ (TEI) study by Forrester Consulting to analyze the value that Fortinet Secure SD-WAN can provide to large enterprises, examining both the network and security impact on customers’ businesses.

As part of the independent study, Forrester interviewed business decision-makers with experience across industries and geographies, including retail, healthcare, financial services, and manufacturing. Collectively, the organizations deployed Fortinet Secure SD-WAN and other Fortinet products, such as switches, wireless LAN, and wireless WAN, and have more than $1 billion in annual revenue, up to 8,500 sites, and up to 133,000 employees.

Based on customer feedback, Forrester developed a composite model for the study and built out a three-year financial model to reflect the costs and benefits of the investment.

Key findings from the study and benefits for customers include:

  • Eight Months Payback and 300% ROI: Customers deploying Fortinet Secure SD-WAN achieved a 300% return on investment over three years with payback in eight months. These benefits include a reduction in communications costs, increased productivity of security and network teams, improved network and security performance, and increased productivity of deployment teams.

  • 65% Reduction in Network Disruption: With enhanced network performance enabled by Fortinet Secure SD-WAN, business users experienced a 65% reduction in the number of network disruptions.

  • 50% Improvement in Resolving Issues: Fortinet offers increased visibility and effective, broad protection, allowing security and network teams to identify and remediate network issues more quickly. Improving time to issue resolution by as much as 50% enabled the composite organization to reassign security and network team resources to higher value activities, resulting in a three-year, risk-adjusted productivity benefit of $1.4 million.

  • Increased Productivity of Deployment Team: Fortinet Secure SD-WAN enabled the composite organization to save time by 75% per new deployment, resulting in significant efficiencies for the deployment team.

Fortinet Secure SD-WAN Transforms and Secures WAN

Prior to implementing Fortinet Secure SD-WAN, the organizations used a combination of technologies and vendors to manage, maintain, and monitor their networks. These solutions, which relied on MPLS, internet, and assorted hardware, lacked visibility and adequate security coverage, forcing network engineers and administrators to spend excessive time identifying and resolving unanticipated problems on an ad hoc basis. Additionally, scaling and modifying existing solutions became increasingly cost-prohibitive and time-consuming.

To learn more about the additional benefits of Fortinet Secure SD-WAN based on real customer feedback, get The Total Economic™ Impact of Fortinet Secure SD-WAN study.

Additional Analyst Recognition and Customer Validation of Fortinet Secure SD-WAN
In addition to these findings from the independent Forrester study, Fortinet Secure SD-WAN has received industry recognition and momentum throughout the year. Fortinet was named a Leader in the 2022 Gartner® Magic Quadrant™ for SD-WAN for the third consecutive year, placing highest in the quadrant for its ability to execute.

Furthermore, Fortinet is the only vendor to have been ranked #1 in three of the five use cases in the 2022 Gartner® Critical Capabilities for SD-WAN report for the past two years for Remote Worker, Security-Sensitive WAN, and WAN for Small Branches.

Fortinet Secure SD-WAN also received positive validation from its customers. Fortinet was named a Customers’ Choice in the March 2022 Gartner Peer Insights ‘Voice of the Customer’: WAN Edge Infrastructure report—for the third year in a row—in recognition of the reviews that customers voluntarily submit about their experience with Fortinet’s Secure SD-WAN solution.
