Fortinet at RSA 2017

By Bill McGee | February 08, 2017

RSA 2017 is here. IoT and the cloud have had a major impact on the security industry over the past year, and we expect that vendors will be out in force touting their new solutions.

The challenge, of course, is that many of these tools and devices will operate in isolation, and for many organizations they will only serve to further complicate an already overburdened security infrastructure. Which is why this year the Fortinet Security Fabric, with its ability to integrate and automate security solutions into a single holistic architecture, will be more important than ever.

We are proud to be a Gold Sponsor at this year’s RSA event. We are located at Booth #N3627 in the North Hall.

This year we will have an in-booth theater featuring Fortinet experts presenting on such topics as enterprise FW, cloud security, FortiGuard, Advanced Threat Protection, and our Security Operations Center solution. The theater will also feature presentations from a number of our Fabric-Ready Partners showcasing the unique interoperability, scope, and flexibility of the Fortinet Security Fabric.

We will also be featuring an NSE Experts Bar at the back of booth, and we invite customers and attendees to drop by for detailed discussions around your security challenges.

We are also sponsoring and supporting a number of key events at this year’s conference. Details are below:

A Sustainable Strategy for Critical Infrastructures and Key Resources
