Business & Technology
For the second year in a row, Fortinet is partnering with the BMW i Andretti Motorsport Formula E Team for season 7. Formula E is one of the fastest-growing series in motorsport. The goal of Formula E is to test new technologies, drive development to the production line and put more electric cars on the road to address the devastating effects of air pollution. This series is dedicated to efficiency, with a race lineup of all-electric cars and performance driven by leading technology.
Fortinet and BMW Motorsport have a shared commitment for high performance, reliability and innovation. Given these synergies, Fortinet has partnered with the BMW i Andretti Motorsport team once again to help support digital innovations on and off the race track.
Similar to Formula E, Fortinet drives digital innovations through our Fortinet Security Fabric. BMW Motorsport relies on Fortinet to secure parts of their motorsport environments and operations across a highly distributed infrastructure.
Stefan Frost, Head of IT for BMW Motorsport says, “Administration of the Fortinet firewalls, part of the Security Fabric, through its web GUI is very easy to deploy. This means our IT specialist traveling with the race team can quickly adjust configurations to the local circumstances, even if that person does not have deep firewall-specific expertise. This is one of the main reasons we chose Fortinet.”
Fortinet’s products and solutions powered by organically developed Fortinet SPUs are engineered with an emphasis on high performance, reliability and innovation.
Fortinet is proud to be part of the 2021 Formula E season and share in BMW i Andretti Motorsport’s commitment to innovation, high performance, and reliability.
The ABB FIA Formula E World Championship season opens in Diriyah, Saudi Arabia on February 26 & 27. Fans can view the team’s drivers and schedules, along with the entire race season, here.
