Rajeev Abichandani, Channels Business Lead - India & SAARC- Fortinet
2020 has been a milestone year for Fortinet technologies. We are celebrating our 20th anniversary this year & it is just getting started . With a lot of pride, I can say that Fortinet is the # 1 cybersecurity company in the world.
The year 2020 also brought in unprecedented challenges in each of our lives. We were hit by the pandemic in first quarter of this year. The situation can best be described as an inversion of the status quo. Until march 2020, the majority of employees did their jobs within the confines of an corporate offices in a controlled network environment. But today most of us are Working from home with no idea when we can return to pre-pandemic normal. In the immediate onset of the pandemic, CISOs and IT teams rushed to support home systems, stand up new VPN servers (on premises or in the cloud) and dramatically expanding MFA.
During this time an unprecedented number of unprotected users and devices were online, giving a perfect storm of opportunity for the cybercriminals. And these devices don’t even need to be attacked directly, since they are all connected to the single home network and have multiple avenues of attack that can be exploited with the ultimate goal of finding a way back into a corporate network and its valuable resources.
With Fortinet Security Fabric – Which is the most advanced framework provides full protection across the entire digital infrastructure & under this umbrella we have more than 30 products seamlessly connecting to each other simplifying operations & driving automation.
