Empirical data from individual Test Reports and Comparative Reports is used to create NSS Labs’ unique Security Value Map™ (SVM). The SVM illustrates the relative value of security investment by mapping the Security Effectiveness and the Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) per Protected Mbps (Value) of tested product configurations.

The following products were evaluated:

  • Fortinet FortiGate 3200D v5.4.10 GA Build 7811
  • Fortinet FortiGate 6300F v5.4.10 GA Build 4283
  • Trend Micro TippingPoint TPS 8400TX v5.1.0.4965

To learn how vendors performed, download individual Test Reports. NSS clients can also download the Comparative Reports on Performance, Security, and Total Cost of Ownership..

As with all NSS Labs group tests, there was no fee for participation. In addition, the Test Methodologies applied are in the public domain to provide transparency and to help enterprises understand the results.
