“The total addressable market for network security is rapidly expanding from the data center outward to the local and wide-area networks, to the work-from-anywhere environment and to the cloud. We are focused on leveraging our ASIC-supported security fabric platform across this expanding total addressable market to drive better than industry average long-term growth for Fortinet.”
