Will also showcase FortiGuard threat intelligence service which arms CISO's and Security Operations with information on the latest threats and trends to better protect their networks

Dubai, UAE, October 2, 2017: Fortinet® (NASDAQ: FTNT), the global leader in high-performance cybersecurity solutions will focus on the extended capabilities of the Fortinet Security Fabric at Gitex 2017, and demonstrate how it is helping ‘borderless' enterprises across the Middle East meet the challenges of securing their IoT and the cloud infrastructure and everything in between.

As the region gears up for the adoption of smart technologies, IoT, AI, and blockchain, Fortinet will highlight its forward-thinking view of cybersecurity and how it stands ready to protect blockchain processes and smart technology implementations.

“New technologies like IoT, Artificial Intelligence and blockchain are blurring the borders of an enterprise's network. They also open up the network to a variety of new threats. Cybercriminals are spending less time developing ways to break into an organization's network, and instead are focusing on leveraging automated and intent-based tools to infiltrate with more impact to business continuity,” said Alain Penel, regional vice president – Middle East, Fortinet.

To tackle these modern day security challenges, Fortinet has extended the performance, automation, visibility, and management of the Fortinet Security Fabric into all types of cloud environments, spanning across private and public cloud ecosystems. The core capabilities of the Security Fabric architecture enable businesses to experience the same level of cybersecurity and threat intelligence in cloud environments as they do on their physical networks.

“Our goal at Gitex is to inform and educate IT decision makers on the importance of maintaining the security lifecycle which requires constant attention through monitoring and analysis, responding to threats, and improving policies and protocols. The trick is to always stay one step ahead of cybercriminals who are relentlessly targeting infrastructure and resources,” he added.

Fortinet will also advocate its cloud-based threat intelligence platform, FortiGuard Threat Intelligence Services (TIS) that provides threat metrics and activity trends to enable CISOs in the region to stay ahead of the global and regional threat landscape and proactively defend their enterprises against rapidly evolving threats.

“Organisations in the region are prime targets for sophisticated attacks from cybercriminals who leverage methods like machine learning and AI-like attacks to more effectively accomplish their tasks without detection. The FortiGuard threat intelligence service, helps to give that visibility of the threat environment and is a valuable addition to the threat intelligence toolbox of any security operations team,” added Penel.

Fortinet will be in Hall 1- Stand E1-10 during Gitex Technology Week, which runs from October 8 to October 12 at the Dubai World Trade Center.
