Visit Fortinet at Black Hat 2017

By Mike Morgan | July 14, 2017

Fortinet is proud to be a Platinum Plus Sponsor at Black Hat’s 20th anniversary conference, being held this July 22-27 at the Mandalay Bay Convention Center in Las Vegas, NV. Our booth is #915.

This year’s booth includes a live theater, and we have lined up great presentations from Fabric-Ready Partners, as well as from some of Fortinet’s top solutions experts.  The presentation schedule will be available in our booth.

In addition, Derek Manky, Fortinet’s Global Security Strategist, will be delivering a 50-minute presentation entitled “Machine to Machine: Overcoming Cyber Threat At Speed” in the Business Hall on Wednesday, July 26, from 12:40pm to 1:30pm.

Derek is one of Fortinet’s most requested speakers, and the author of Fortinet’s annual security predictions report. He is a lead consultant with CSOs/CISOs from Fortune 500 companies around the world, and he also collaborates with global forums and expert groups alongside leading political figures, key policy stakeholders and law enforcement, including the Cyber Threat Alliance (CTA), NATO, INTERPOL, and FIRST.

During his presentation, Derek will discuss how the promise of digital transformation, powered by IoT, cloud, and mobility, is being jeopardized by an ever growing, increasingly sophisticated cyber threat. To make matters worse, maintaining a holistic understanding of threats and vulnerabilities, and then quickly addressing them, is stretching the already limited security resources of most organizations.

Conference goers who attend this informative and lively presentation will learn how to leverage a robust security fabric, armed with real-time threat intelligence, to protect their business.

Derek will also share insights on how the best chance of success lies in creating collective intelligence through the timely sharing of rich, actionable threat information, and the ability to quickly apply that intelligence to infrastructure in a scalable and automated fashion.

We are looking forward to seeing you at this year’s Black Hat event to demonstrate how Fortinet’s robust family of security solutions, tied together by our award-winning Security Fabric, can help you drive your digital business strategy further and faster than before.
