More than half of the world's population is now online, and nearly everyone lives in an area covered by a mobile network. This progress has provided unprecedented financial and social opportunities for individuals and organizations. However, these advances have also been a catalyst for the growth of cybercrime, which threatens the welfare of our global digital economy and the potentially negative social impacts of the misuse of digital technology pertaining to privacy and information security.
Fortinet is engaged in innovating for a safe Internet for all, responsibly, and committed to driving progress and sustainability through cybersecurity.
Addressing Cybersecurity Risks to Society
As our digital world continues to advance, public, private sector, and personal environments are increasingly converging. As a result, the disruption of operations or services and the loss or compromise of data due to cyberattacks now affect everyone. Fortinet is committed to developing advanced cybersecurity to create a safer internet for all through innovation, community engagement, and partnerships.
We strive for innovation and customer success. Because Fortinet solutions are designed to natively interoperate, they provide protections that span digital environments, allowing data, applications, and users to operate from anywhere to anywhere using any device. This can only be achieved through our unparalleled commitment to innovation, evidenced by our leadership position and the 700+ patents we have been awarded—many times more than any other vendor in this space. Our innovative technologies have been engineered to provide the highest security performance and smallest footprint, delivering the best sustainable value to our customers and partners, which is why they are also the most deployed solutions in the world. Fortinet's security platform also allows organizations to reduce operational complexity and policy management overheads for greater visibility and faster mitigation.
Ensuring Information Security & Privacy
In addition to the physical development of advanced cybersecurity technologies, Fortinet is also focused on advancing cybersecurity by sharing our expertise and driving global cooperation.
Fortinet's global threat intelligence and research organization, FortiGuard Labs, drives malware research around the world. FortiGuard Labs is comprised of experienced threat hunters, researchers, analysts, engineers, and data scientists. It is also supported by an advanced AI threat intelligence system that gathers and correlates data from millions of nodes and hundreds of threat feeds to identify threat patterns and evolution.
Fortinet is a founding member and holds a permanent seat on the World Economic Forum's Centre for Cybersecurity. This forum is focused on developing solutions to the world's most pressing cybersecurity challenges, including continuing efforts to close the cybersecurity skills gap and share bold ideas that will create the global impact needed to secure the future. We are also part of the World Economic Forum's Working Group called Partnership against Cybercrime which promotes public-private collaboration in the fight against cybercrime.
We are a founding member of the Cyber Threat Alliance, a consortium of security vendors dedicated to sharing critical threat intelligence to raise the level of security for all organizations worldwide.
