Fortinet's Solution for Managed Security Service Providers

Fortinet solutions empower Managed Security Service Providers with best-in-breed, adaptive security that fits any environment or security requirement—from small and medium businesses to enterprise, data center, and service provider networks.

We understand that Managed Security Service Providers (MSSPs, network service providers, or systems integrators) have special technology demands and support requirements. That’s why we staff experienced professionals with backgrounds in MSSP operations, product development, and training to manage our industry-leading partner program. We also design our technologies to support multi-tenancy, centralized management, platform flexibility, and high-performance networks. In addition to helping MSSPs secure customer networks more effectively, our approach creates additional revenue streams, higher profit margins, and differentiation from the competition.

Centralized management and SOC/NOC operations

Centralized management and operations are core requirements for MSSPs that manage hundreds, thousands, or tens of thousands of customer locations at once. Fortinet solutions increase efficiencies, support advanced automation, and deliver actionable insight.

FortiManager, FortiPortal, and other management solutions provide a single pane of glass to ensure uniform application of security policies across thousands of devices—with advanced customization and delegated administration for MSSPs supporting individual customers or customizable customer-facing portals.

FortiSIEM Security Operations Center (SOC) and Networks Operations Center (NOC) capabilities empower MSSPs with patented analytics that are actionable to tightly manage network security, performance, and compliance standards.

Higher return on investment

Fortinet delivers the highest average revenue per unit (ARPU) of any manufacturer due to multiple unified threat management controls, hardware and software performance, and service automation. This allows the MSSP to convert more services into revenue on a single device. 

We also provide the lowest total cost of ownership (TCO) with: 

  • Centralized management supporting APIs for service automation
  • Broad options and cost-effective hardware and virtual solutions
  • Simplified, non-user-based subscription and support 
  • One operating system across hardware and virtual platforms

Fortinet develops tools for automation of security deployments, maintenance, and management centralization which dramatically reduces an MSSPs operational costs and improves customer satisfaction.
