“Because we deal in the management and control of critical resources, we needed granular access to firewalls and other security tools to build and maintain a single, unified security posture. That’s why we started working with Fortinet.”

– Richard Hannah, vice president of information services,
Gibson Energy


Gibson Energy, a 60-year-old Canadian company, specializes in the transportation, storage, blending, processing, and distribution of crude oil and other refined products. The company, headquartered in Calgary, also offers oilfield waste and water management services. 

As a midstream energy company, “we have thousands of devices in the field,” Hannah said. Prior to Internet of Things (IoT), monitoring these devices was done manually or not at all. With IoT, operations teams can now watch their devices in real-time, he stated. “It saves thousands of hours of maintenance, thousands of hours of man time.” Read the interview or watch the video to learn how Gibson’s protects their network from the Cloud to IOT.
