Fortinet Showcases Advanced Security Solutions at the 2018 Gartner Security and Risk Management Summit

By Fortinet | June 01, 2018

Cybersecurity challenges continue to be one of the major issues facing organizations today – a problem that barely even existed thirty years ago. For most of that time, it has been the domain of engineers and IT teams. But as risks have escalated, financial losses have grown, and legislation requiring compliance and the protection of personal data include increasingly severe consequences, cybersecurity issues have moved from the wiring closet to the boardroom.

The biggest issues executives need to deal with include understanding the business issues related to cybercrime, how to separate fear, uncertainty, and doubt (FUD) from facts, and how to implement effective solutions that can adapt to and enable business. The question is, where do you get information like that? The best solution is to talk with other business leaders that are wrestling with the same challenges.

Which is why the Gartner Security & Risk Management Summit is so unique, and why Fortinet is proud to be a Platinum Sponsor of this event.

This year’s event is being held June 4-6 at the Gaylord National resort in National Harbor, MD. Hundreds of senior business and IT leaders will convene at this event to interact and share their knowledge and objectives, listen to industry leaders, and learn about the latest solutions in an atmosphere focused on the challenges and concerns of business executives.

In fact, over 75% of attendees at the summit are managers or above, and over a third are VP or C-level executives. Which means that solutions and topics are geared to the needs of decision makers. Sessions are focused on such critical topics as cost-effective risk management and maintaining effective security during the current period of rapid digital transformation.

Fortinet Solution Provider Session

Fortinet will be addressing these very issues in our Solution Provider Session on Wednesday, June 6th at 3:15pm. Jonathan Nguyen-Duy, Fortinet’s VP of Strategy & Analytics will be delivering a presentation entitled “Securing the Connected Citizen & Digital Transformation” in Potomac A.

Digital transformation, sophisticated threats, and expanding regulatory compliance requirements are increasing both the complexity and cost of cybersecurity. Jonathan’s presentation provides a practical approach to securing today’s highly distributed, hyper-connected enterprises. Leveraging distributed network segmentation and virtualization enables organizations to deploy a cost-effective security strategy that provides broad visibility and single pane of glass management and control, from the IoT edge to hybrid multi-cloud environments.

The Security Fabric and New Fabric Connectors Are Transforming Cybersecurity

Fortinet will be showcasing innovative and adaptive security solutions specifically engineered to address the cyber challenges being faced by today’s organizations in Booth #919.

Fortinet’s unique Security Fabric approach enables organizations to tie traditionally isolated security solutions into a single, integrated system to automate security workflows, tighten SOC environments, correlate threat feeds, and seamlessly enforce consistent security across your distributed security infrastructure, including multi-cloud environments. And our new Fabric Connectors enable you to seamlessly extend security deep into new environments with a single click as platforms, services, and applications are deployed.

We look forward to seeing you at the Gartner Security & Risk Management Summit and discussing how we can help you dynamically extend and improve your cybersecurity strategy as your organization transforms to compete more effectively in today’s digital marketplace.
