This document provides test results for the Fortinet FortiGate-100F v6.0.2 build6215 GA (IPS engine 4.00045 and signature pack 14.00697). During the NSS Labs 2019 Next Generation Intrusion Prevention (NGIPS) Group Test, the Fortinet FortiGate-100F v6.0.2 build6215 GA failed to detect 30 evasions. This affected its placement in NSS’ 2019 NGIPS Security Value Map (SVM)™.

After working closely with NSS, Fortinet updated its software and released IPS engine 4.00045 and signature pack 14.00697. The updated device was subjected to testing under the same NGIPS Test Methodology (v5.0) and appropriately handled all of the 494 evasions it was tested against.
