Fortinet and Hewlett Packard Enterprise Partner to Secure Multi-Cloud and OT Environments

By Vince Hwang | August 18, 2021

Fortinet took the virtual stage as a showcase sponsor of the HPE Discover 2021 event where we highlighted our alliance with HPE and everything we’re doing together to secure and help businesses around the world.

Increasingly data-driven and cloud-based industries are leaving various organizations exposed and vulnerable to cybercriminals and crisis situations – not to mention at risk of human error that leads to data deletion. To address these risks and prevent any disruption that can undermine the customer workflow, organizations need advanced end-to-end security that is broad, automated and integrated, as well as simple to deploy.

To help combat growing threats, Fortinet and HPE have a strategic partnership that combines Fortinet’s Security Fabric platform approach with best-in-class expertise to provide comprehensive and innovative security solutions. This partnership has resulted in a powerful and broad array of network and application security solutions, enabling industry-leading security protection for organizations.
