DefendEdge is a managed security services provider (MSSP) offering premium cybersecurity services to small and medium businesses often in highly regulated sectors. Since its founding, DefendEdge has employed a full range of Fortinet Security Fabric solutions both for its MSSP services and its own internal security needs.

Through standardizing on the Fortinet Security Fabric architecture, the MSSP finds Fortinet solutions highly intuitive and easy to train employees on their use. Powerful reporting capabilities allow DefendEdge to demonstrate to customers the value they receive. DefendEdge is confident it can continue operating as a dedicated Fortinet MSSP since it continues to see innovations from Fortinet.
