This year’s event is anticipating over 2,500 attendees who will be participating in more than 140 sessions and other hands-on experiences, led by today’s top thought leaders and industry experts.
Security in the World of IoT, The Convergence of Network Access Control and IoT Security - Wednesday, September 26 / 3:00 – 3:30 PM by Frank Andrus, Fortinet’s VP of Engineering
The surge in the deployment of IoT devices requires advanced network security, including the ability to identify every user and classify every device that connects to the network and then grant or limit network access appropriately. Attendees will learn how Fortinet enables organizations to define and implement a comprehensive security posture that starts with end-to-end network visibility, including the ability to enforce dynamic network access controls and implement automated threat response.
The Critical Factors For Deploying Your Secure SD-WAN - Thursday, September 27 / 11:00 – 11:30 / Sponsor Lab 2 by Rick Mashburn, Fortinet’s Director of Systems Engineering
While digital transformation is pushing more enterprise traffic to the edges of the network, traditional WAN infrastructures are becoming inadequate for providing voice and video to branch locations. SD-WAN offers enterprises a more cost-effective solution that delivers better and smarter application performance. But not every SD-WAN solution is up to the challenge. In this Lab, Networking Directors and VPs will learn how to improve their business SLAs around network availability, reliability, VPN performance, and security without impacting quality of experience or network performance, while managing complexity and cutting costs.
Managing the Demands of Today’s Risks - A Security Fabric Approach - Thursday, September 27 / 1:00 – 1:40 by Jonathan Nguyen-Duy, Fortinet’s Vice President of Strategy and Analytics
Technological and organizational complexity is increasing the burden that security staff has deal with, and that impacts the time it takes to resolve cyber-attacks. Managing environments with disparate tools and appliances is no longer an acceptable approach for securing modern business infrastructure. A fabric strategy weaves strategically deployed devices into a single, cohesive security system, enabling near-seamless manageability. Attendees will learn Fortinet’s methodology for delivering a security fabric that helps businesses reduce complexity, increase time to execution, and manage the entire security attack surface more effectively.
Fortinet’s exhibit floor showcase will feature business-critical solutions focused on:
FortiGate NGFW – Unparalleled performance, top-rated protection, and the lowest TCO in the industry enables Fortinet’s portfolio of FortiGate NGFW solutions to help your organization meet today’s demanding network performance, reliability, availability, and security requirements.
Fortinet Security Fabric – Enables organizations to deploy a single comprehensive, integrated, and adaptive security solution that spans the entire distributed network, from the endpoint and core to the next-gen branch and hybrid cloud.
Secure Wi-Fi Access – Continuously delivers world-class network security and performance even as the number of users, devices, and applications needing wireless network access continues to climb.
Virtual Network Functions – As organizations rapidly adopt a hybrid strategy comprised of private and multiple public cloud environment it is critical that you have a security strategy in place that can dynamically secure the distributed network even as it adapts to constantly shifting business priorities.
