Fortinet works closely with its channel partners to untap new opportunities and expand business growth together. It does this through its Engage Partner Program – designed to better prepare Fortinet partners to effectively engage and succeed in today’s new security environments – and through various enablement initiatives. Fortinet is proud to provide partners with a valuable, flexible platform to build a profitable and highly-differentiated security practice that leverages the industry’s best solutions to drive customer success. 

Fortinet’s partner enablement initiatives, along with industry-leading security products and solutions, allow partners to meet customer demands and set them up for success, regardless of their size or business objectives. Through Fortinet’s continued commitment to our channel partners, we are pleased to be the recipients of two awards from our channel partners, Ingram Micro Inc. and Tech Data.

Fortinet Recognized with Partner Awards

Fortinet was named Ingram Micro’s 2020 Partner of the Year during its Experience Vendor of the Year awards, which recognize the industry’s leading technology providers for outstanding partner engagement and work ethic. Awards are also given to partners who have demonstrated an unwavering commitment to growing more profitably together. 

“This year’s Ingram Micro Experience Vendor of the Year Awards celebrate our providers for their commitment, resilience, transformational leadership and innovative thinking,” says Jennifer Anaya, senior vice president of global marketing, Ingram Micro. “On behalf of our team and channel partners, thank you and congratulations to Fortinet for working harder and smarter and making it happen when our partners and their customers needed IT most.” 

Working with Fortinet, Ingram Micro has been able to enhance its portfolio and programs to adapt to the changing demands of partners and end-users, especially notable during the pandemic. Fortinet’s emphasis on product innovation, partnership, and managed cloud capabilities enables partners to align their services with their customers’ security needs, driving growth and profitability. Fortinet is a recognized security leader that is committed to its channel partners and enabling joint investment and growth for both organizations. Fortinet was able to embrace creative change as partner engagement activities were made virtual and remain a dedicated and engaged sponsor to Ingram Micro’s top partner communities. 

Additionally, Fortinet has earned the title of Tech Data’s Security Vendor of the Year. The annual event rewards strategic vendors for innovative products and solutions. Nominees and award winners were selected for demonstrating the Tech Data values and showcasing a strong commitment to Tech Data, its channel partners, and the IT industry. The award recognizes Fortinet’s engagement with Tech Data’s partner communities to develop innovative channel promotions and programs, as well as collaborate with Tech Data’s sales and sales leadership teams on a regular basis.
