Fortinet has conducted its annual SAARC PartnerSYNC conference in Bangkok, Thailand and honoured partners for their outstanding achievements in 2017. The conference hosted over 150 attendees representing partner organizations from the five SAARC countries of India, Sri Lanka, Bangladesh, Nepal and Bhutan.
Plenary sessions and workshops at the conference centred around Digital Transformation and the need to shift security from a fixed perimeter mindset to one where security is automatically applied wherever data is located. Partners were presented with new business opportunities to bundle specialized security technologies to be dynamically deployed where and when they are needed, and then marshal the distributed power of the entire security infrastructure to respond to detected threats in a consistent and correlated fashion.
PartnerSYNC offered a unique opportunity for partners to gain insights into Fortinet’s Security Fabric architecture, provide direct feedback to Fortinet leadership, learn to maximize Fortinet’s enablement programs, and gain and share best practices with the cybersecurity industry’s brightest minds.
At the conference, Fortinet announced the winners of its 2017 SAARC Partner of the Year Awards. The awards recognize outstanding cybersecurity sales, customer experience, collaboration, and marketing achievements in the region.
