Fortinet: Network security you can trust

You have every reason to be worried about the security of your network, keeping your sensitive data safe and ensuring that your business avoids becoming the latest cyber-crime statistic.

With more and more staff and owners using personal mobile devices, increased access to the Internet and the growing reliance on the Internet to run your business, reducing risk is becoming more of a challenge. Fortinet, through market-leading security technology and a nation-wide network of expert Partners, has the security solutions you need to keep your business safe and your clients happy.

“You don’t have to compromise when it comes to comprehensive network security,” says Andrew Khan, Fortinet Senior Business Manager at Ingram Micro, New Zealand’s largest distributor of Fortinet’s cyber-security solutions. “No matter how many staff you have, where or how they access your network or what type of device they use, you can keep them safe and secure with the right security solutions.”

Fortinet security solutions are optimised for small and medium-sized business. “The advantage of Fortinet is that the security ‘logic’ is built into a special chip that manages the security operations,” explains Khan. “This chip sits inside each and every Fortinet firewall from the entry-level FortiGate 30D firewall – ideal for Kiwi SMBs – all the way to the FortiGate 5000 series that protects some of the world’s largest datacentres. So you get all of the benefits of enterprise security in a form factor that you can afford.”

Partners are the key
Fortinet’s nationwide network of certified Partners provide local expertise and support for all your security needs. “We have Partners up and down the country who can help you secure your network,” continues Khan. “Before they can install and support any Fortinet solutions they must undergo rigorous training to ensure that they can perform to Fortinet’s exacting standards. Network security is not like replacing a lightbulb. The solution must be custom fit to your requirements. The ability to design and implement a secure network is not a trivial undertaking. Fortinet’s Partners have the skills and solutions that you need to help your business thrive.”

Network security is a dynamic exercise. “Every minute of every day the threat landscape evolves,” warns Khan. “New viruses, smarter malware and more determined hackers mean that you have to keep current. Fortinet’s FortiGuard Labs provide 24/7 updates via the Security Subscription Service, that automatically refresh your firewall with the latest signatures and protection. And, as your company grows and your requirements become more complex, Fortinet has a comprehensive range of complementary solutions to provide enhanced services such as secure Wi-Fi, authentication, secure email, identity management and a host of other advanced services.”

Secure your network
“If you have any doubts about your current level of network security,” concludes Khan, “you should be talking to your IT provider about Fortinet. And if they aren’t a Fortinet Partner, give us a call and we’ll put you in touch with the right people. You can’t afford to run an under-secured network. The risks are simply too great. But with Fortinet you can have market-leading security and a Partner you can trust.”
