Fortinet has recently hosted its annual Global Partner Conference, which this year took place on board the Royal Caribbean Cruise Liner ‘Majesty of the Seas’, on November 5-8. This year’s conference attendance was Fortinet’s largest, encompassing more than 1,000 distributors and silver and gold resellers from 70 countries.
During the event, one of Fortinet’s highlights was the introduction and channel training of its new FortiOS 5.0, the world’s most advanced security operating system. This new release provides more security, intelligence and control to help enterprises be better protected against today’s advanced threats and enables more secure BYOD environments. Bringing more than 150 new features for FortiGate, FortiManager, FortiAnalyzer and FortiClient products, FortiOS 5.0 provides Fortinet’s partners with a real competitive advantage by allowing them to offer enterprises of all sizes solutions that better defend against new advanced threats and help manage and protect networks against the influx of mobile devices and applications.
Fortinet also recognized the outstanding achievements drawn from the company’s distributors and resellers around the world, rewarding its best partners of the year.
“Fortinet continues to rapidly gain market share in the overall network security market, and our channel is key to that success,” said Bashar Bashaireh, Regional Director of Fortinet Middle East. “This year’s conference was the perfect opportunity to share our latest technology innovations and business strategies with our silver and gold resellers in order to have them best equipped to address the increasingly challenging security requirements of our end customers.”
