Fortinet conducted its Partner Synergy conference at the Grand Hyatt, Mumbai to give partners visibility into how to offer their customers the most comprehensive protection while growing their security business in 2020. The conference hosted 180 partners who gained insights on how to shorten the sales cycle and on how to differentiate business in a competitive market with an SD-WAN specialization.
Today’s complex and interconnected networking environments demand a robust cybersecurity platform to ensure effective protection. Disparate point products are no longer an option and can even increase risk. This ultimately means that partners must have a deep understanding of their customers’ new network strategies and objectives in order to keep them safe. From machine learning to the multi-cloud to the unprecedented rate of adoption of IoT devices, digital transformation and technological improvements require new strategies and solutions for managing cybersecurity.
Presenting to partners, Rajesh Maurya, Regional Vice President, India & SAARC at Fortinet said “The growth of digital transformation combined with the cybersecurity skills gap has led to organizations increasingly seeking expertise from partners to deploy the best security framework. This is a huge opportunity for our partners to grow their businesses while increasing the value they offer their customers. Going into 2020 partners can embrace a strategy focused on our third-generation of security and should look beyond perimeter defence to protect data that spans different users, clouds and the convergence of digital and physical networks.”
