Fortinet conducted its annual SAARC partner conference at Abu Dhabi and recognized top partners for their outstanding achievements in 2015. This year’s SAARC conference was attended by more than 150 partners from the region.
Fortinet’s SAARC Partner Conference provided the Fortinet partner community with access to key marketing and business strategies, leadership, and information regarding specific customer solutions designed to help partners succeed in the marketplace. One key initiative for business growth introduced to partners is the vendor’s solution value proposition for Internal Segmentation Firewalling (ISFW), a complete, continuous, inside-out protection against enterprise threats.
The conference also highlighted the launch of Fortinet’s Cyber Threat Assessment Program (CTAP) that provides an important opportunity for partners to engage with customers and prospects to help ensure they’re not relying on legacy systems that aren’t effective against today’s dynamic cyber attacks that occur across multiple vectors and stages. By offering a deeper analysis of existing or possible threats, customers are given a clear assessment of the risks to their environments, while Fortinet and its partners help prioritize actions to mitigate those risks, providing customers the peace of mind knowing their critical assets are protected.
Along with informative learning opportunities covering sales, marketing, services and technology, the conference also presented an ideal setting for partners to take away valuable knowledge from their peers and from Fortinet.
The conference also awarded partners for their achievements in 2015:
Highest Revenue – National Partner: Sify Technologies Ltd.
