Alberta Urban Municipalities Association (AUMA)

Enterprise-Class Security That Municipalities Can Afford

“In our legacy environment, if our endpoint solution detected something, it would take at least half a day for remediation efforts to begin. In contrast, if FortiEDR detects an issue, the time to response is almost immediate.”

– Shaun Guthrie, Senior Director, IT, Alberta Urban Municipalities Association (AUMA)


The Alberta Urban Municipalities Association (AUMA) provides advocacy and business services to the local governments that serve more than 85% of the province’s residents. In a recent cyber threat vulnerability assessment, AUMA discovered that a primary cause for concern was the company’s use of core infrastructure systems from three different vendors. With very little visibility into security events across its network, AUMA could not properly address its security risk. So, AUMA’s IT team and their managed service provider, Stratejm, turned to the Fortinet Security Fabric. Fortinet’s integrated network edge protection and secure access now give AUMA the end-to-end visibility it needs, while the Security Fabric’s multi-layered detection and response capabilities enable Stratejm to take immediate and effective action against any threats.

Learn how AUMA leveraged the Fortinet Security Fabric to lower its operational costs, while also creating a five-figure revenue-generating service, in this case study.
