Move further extends Fortinet security fabric into cloud, virtual, and software defined environments
Fortinet has announced the addition of eight industry-leading information technology providers to its Fabric-Ready Partner Program.
New Fabric-Ready Program Partners include AlgoSec, Attivo Networks, Cisco, Hewlett Packard Enterprise, Nuage Networks from Nokia, Silver Peak, VeloCloud and Versa Networks.
The Fabric-Ready Partner Program builds on Fortinet’s ecosystem of technology alliances by opening the functionality of the Fortinet Security Fabric to complementary solutions. Partners in this program validate technology integration with the Security Fabric, have committed to sharing roadmaps for consistent interoperability, and will benefit from joint go-to-market initiatives.
To date, Fortinet has brought together 22 Fabric-Ready Program Partners, representing a cross-section of leading information technology providers to deliver pre-integrated, end-to-end offerings ready for deployment, reducing technical support burden and costs for enterprise customers.
“A rapid and coordinated response is critical to defend against today’s threats. The Fortinet Security Fabric has the breadth to scale across the entire enterprise infrastructure and enables tight integration with other security vendors’ solutions through our Fabric-Ready Partner Program,” said John Maddison, senior vice president of products and solutions at Fortinet.
“This open approach enables multiple vendors’ security solutions to share actionable threat intelligence and mitigation information in real-time, further amplifying Fortinet and its partners’ capabilities to protect enterprises from IoT to The Cloud. Fortinet would like to welcome our new Fabric-Ready partners and their ongoing commitment to provide a more secure future for all of our customers,” Maddison adds.
