Success in these races depends on data moving reliably, quickly, and securely from the racetrack to headquarters for real-time data analysis. The Fortinet FortiGate Next-generation Firewall provides this high-performance connection. While BMW i Motorsport is a top innovator in racing, Fortinet is the leading innovator in security technologies, with more patents than the next-leading cybersecurity vendors combined.
