Join Fortinet at IBM InterConnect 2017

By Neil Prasad | March 20, 2017

Fortinet is participating in IBM’s premier industry event – the IBM InterConnect 2017 conference – this week, from March 19-23 in Las Vegas. More than 20,000 Cloud, DevOps, IoT, Security and other related professionals from around the world will gather to share knowledge, learn, network, and have some fun! Attendees will discover how companies, ranging from the largest enterprises to the smallest startups, are advancing their journey in this new era of cloud and cognitive computing, with a heavy emphasis on staying ahead of evolving security threats.

Most attendees will be coming to the event to look for solutions to cybersecurity challenges they face in their organizations today. A key challenge is that traditional security solutions tend to operate in isolated security silos and add complexity to networks striving for simplicity. To support today’s dynamic networks, security solutions need to see and understand every device on the network, dynamically segment traffic based on policy and intent, and monitor and protect data and resources across the entire distributed environment, from IoT, through the network core, and into the cloud.

The Fortinet Security Fabric is an architectural approach to security designed to connect security solutions into a unified framework. This flexible and open design principle follows IBM's company values, and allows business leaders and architects to dynamically adapt to their evolving IT infrastructure in order to defend its rapidly changing attack surface. Fortinet’s Security Fabric enables networks to collect and share intelligence between devices and vendors, unify management, and synchronize and automate responses to threats.

Join Fortinet at booth 849 while you’re at IBM InterConnect 2017 to see a demo of the Fortinet Security Fabric in action! The booth will also showcase a live demo of the new Fortinet FortiGate App for the IBM Security QRadar® security intelligence platform, featuring enhanced visualization of Fortinet security solutions. We’ll also have technical experts and executives on hand to discuss any security needs you may have, and provide information on our industry-leading Fortinet products and solutions.

Fortinet and IBM Security have a highly strategic partnership, enabling them to join forces to address today’s most challenging security problems. Fortinet is a Global IBM Security Alliance Partner providing managed security services, consulting services, and technology solutions that offer comprehensive and unparalleled security protection.
