Dubai, UAE - 11.02.2019


Fortinet® (NASDAQ: FTNT), a global leader in broad, integrated, and automated cybersecurity solutions, today announced that Oman Data Park (ODP) has expanded its managed security services offering by adding the Fortinet Secure SD-WAN solution to its portfolio. This announcement strengthens a long-standing seven years partnership between Oman Data Park and Fortinet. 

Founded in 2012, Oman Data Park is the Sultanate’s premier Managed Services Provider offering both local and international organisations with Infrastructure, AI, Cloud, Public cloud, and Managed security services.

“Oman Data Park enjoys a strategic partnership with Fortinet where they provide us with security solutions for our managed network security services business. Our aim is to provide the best security services and maximum return on investment for our customers who place their trust on us to manage their next-generation security requirements. By adding Fortinet’s powerful and secure SD-WAN to our services, we are not only strengthening our relationship with Fortinet and enhancing our portfolio, but also allowing our customers to benefit from the unique combination of security, flexibility, single-pane-of-glass management and cost savings with minimal to no additional investment.” Said  Maitham Al Lawati, General Manager - Risk & Compliance at Oman Data Park

Fortinet’s Secure SD-WAN solution enables the efficient, automated, SLA-based utilisation of their WAN resources for Internet and cloud-based service access. ODP’s customers have benefitted from these capabilities to replace their separate WAN routers, WAN optimisation products, and security devices with a single solution that is secure, application-aware and offers automatic WAN path control and multi-broadband support. It greatly improves application performance while reducing WAN operating expenses and management complexity. Fortinet’s SD-WAN has also helped ODP customers to secure their applications hosted on ODP cloud, including email and web applications security and Advanced Threat Protection (ATP).

“Oman Data Park is one of Fortinet’s first MSSP partners in the region and we are pleased to see our relationship growing stronger through our shared goals – that of providing customers with critical next-generation security solutions,” said Alain Penel, Regional Vice President – Middle East, Fortinet. “Secure SD-WAN is a native component of the Fortinet Security Fabric and the FortiGate Next-Generation Firewall, and ODP’s customers will benefit from having such tools for undergoing digital transformation without the security risks inherent to other solutions that don’t take a security-first approach”

ODP have standardized their managed security services with Fortinet’s FortiGate appliances to offer customers UTM and NGFW services. Based on customers requirements, ODP provides FortiGate appliances ranging from the entry-level FortiGate 30E series, to the high-end FortiGate 3700D series.
