Purpose-built Technology for Managed Security Service Providers (MSSPs)
Secure and Expand Your Networks Effectively
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 multitenancy, 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.
To help MSSPs differentiate in an increasingly competitive marketplace, we provide advanced, security-focused technologies and threat intelligence tailored to broaden the service portfolio of advanced managed security service providers.
Our industry-leading customization, manageability, and multitenancy make us the perfect security vendor for competitive MSSPs looking to personalize their offerings and improve operational efficiencies. Our solutions provide a broad range of capabilities to secure most any environment or requirement—with highly flexible, high-performance security designed for low-touch deployment and service automation.
Centralized management and reporting
Centralized management and reporting are core requirements for MSSPs that manage hundreds, thousands, or tens of thousands of customer locations at once. Fortinet solutions increase efficiencies and support advanced automation to dramatically reduce manual efforts.
FortiManager and FortiAnalyzer support single-pane-of-glass management to ensure uniform application of security policies across thousands of devices—with advanced customization and delegated administration for security teams supporting individual customers or customizable customer-facing portals.
Higher return on investment
Fortinet delivers the highest average revenue per unit (ARPU) of any manufacturer due to multiple unified threat management controls and hardware acceleration. This allows the MSSP to convert more services into revenue on a single device.
Fortinet also provides the lowest total cost of ownership (TCO) with:
- Centralized management supporting APIs for service automation
- Broad options and cost-effective hardware
- 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.
Comprehensive portfolio—one operating system
A broad and integrated security platform means not having to assemble an array of manufacturers to offer a complete solution. This creates a single source for the security solutions an MSSP needs to respond to changing threats assaulting their customer’s networks.
Fortinet’s platform flexibility and FortiOS uniformity allow the service provider to deploy the same operating system and features in any size or type of environment.
This key benefit also reduces operational expenses and improves productivity, limiting training time and staffing issues associated with supporting multiple vendors.
Fortinet’s specialized MSSP team is a major differentiator among security vendors—comprising over 40 years of experience in managed security service operations, product development, and training. Our experts help MSSP partners quickly ramp-up new services, improve launch outcomes, and increase market share. We also assist with product development support, demand generation, engineering, and ROI models to get the highest ARPU from each device.
We have an innovative MSSP Partner Program as well as the MSSP Center of Excellence—a repository of information and resources from technical to sales to operational. Our engineering resources know MSS best practices, customization, and automation needs of providers.
