Fortinet distie talks of benefits of adding next generation firewall to reseller portfolio

A growing dependence on IT security solutions that can protect the new ‘mobile network’ is an opportunity for resellers, according to network security vendor Fortinet.

“Threats to applications, websites and mobile devices are on the increase as end-users look towards a mobile world where they can access the network from practically any location, adding to the increasingly sophisticated nature of the threat landscape,” explains Graham Jones, joint country manager at Fortinet distributor Exclusive Networks UK. “This is resulting in enterprises requiring smart detection and inspection techniques and application awareness, strong features that are found in next generation firewalls.”

He adds: “With increasing revenues likely in this space, resellers can realise very quickly the benefits of having next generation firewalls in their portfolio. They can also tap into a market that isn’t likely to decrease in size, if only for the reason that enterprises will always require advanced firewall solutions to resolve IT threats.”

Jones was speaking at the launch of Fortinet’s FortiGate-1500D next-generation firewall , whch it claims provides full control over content, applications, user and device behaviour through the FortiOS 5 OS, allowing administrators to deal with threats quickly.
