Help AG partners with Fortinet to combat security challenges
The partnership will focus on the UAE, Qatar and Saudi Arabia
Help AG has revealed it has been awarded the status of an authorised reseller with Fortinet for the Middle East region.
Fortinet's Security Fabric, which includes Fortinet's Enterprise Firewall, Advanced Persistent Threat Detection and Application Security solutions, will enable Help AG to address the security challenges faced by enterprise customers, as well as enhance the value proposition of these solutions by bundling them with professional services and locally-delivered 24x7 support.
Stephan Berner, CEO at Help AG, said: "Fortinet recently crossed a milestone by successfully being awarded over 350 patents, which is testament to the effort they put into research and development in the field of cyber security. Help AG shares this commitment to technical expertise and their technologies fit well into our overall strategy to provide best-of-breed cyber security solutions to distributed and large enterprises."
Help AG has developed a cyber security framework called the Help AG Zero-Trust Architecture. This model is based around three principles- secured access for all resources regardless of location; stringently applied ‘least access' control; and fine-grain monitoring and logging of all network traffic. Fortinet's Enterprise Firewall and Application Security solutions complement additional best-in-class technologies which Help AG leverages to deliver this framework.
The partnership will focus on the UAE, Qatar and Saudi Arabia with Help AG expecting uptake of the vendor's solutions by the banking and finance, government, oil & gas, aviation, retail, healthcare, hospitality, education, media, defence and telco sectors.
