Leading Telco Provider Chooses FortiGate and FortiPortal Solutions as the Foundation of its Cloud-Based Clean Pipe Internet Service

Dubai, UAE – Mobile World Congress 2018 – February 27, 2018

Fortinet (NASDAQ: FTNT), a global leader in broad, integrated and automated cybersecurity solutions, today announced that UAE-based telecommunications service provider du – from Emirates Integrated Telecommunications Company (EITC), has selected Fortinet Security Fabric solutions as the foundation of its Cloud Unified Threat Management (UTM) managed security services, designed for Enterprise broadband premium and professional customers, as well as small and medium organizations. Fortinet's FortiPortal serves as the enterprise's single-pane of glass management, providing security visibility and control of the enterprise customer's Internet traffic.

While organizations embrace cloud services as a key part of their digital transformation strategies, du was the UAE telco pioneer to offer multi-cloud services to its enterprise customers including Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS), Platform as a Service (PaaS) and Software as a Service (SaaS).

As part of its strategy for new value-added services to its enterprise and professional customers, du was looking to deliver a cloud-based clean pipeline service, providing both granular security services coupled with customer's single point of management for self-service and visibility.

Other key selection criteria included the capabilities of security infrastructure to support a rich set of security services and capabilities, such as web content filtering, virus protection, intrusion prevention, application control, data loss prevention and remote VPN access.

“For our clean pipe Internet offering, we vetted several vendors, and Fortinet met our stringent evaluation criteria which was based on the availability of a dedicated customer portal, security features, reporting capabilities, connectivity options and protocols available, as well providing the best price-performance solution,” added Farid Faraidooni, Deputy CEO, ICT Solutions, EITC.

“The business benefits post-implementation have been significant. The service is enabling enterprise customers to provide better protection and mitigation from cyberthreats such as viruses, botnets and advanced persistent threats. It has helped customers reduce their CAPEX by eliminating the cost of deploying and running on-premise hardware as well as hiring additional resources,” Faraidooni added.

Fortinet's FortiPortal provides du with everything required to fully manage the FortiGate enterprise firewalls from a centralized management console with remotely managed network security from any location, via the cloud. It also allows these capabilities to be extended to du's customers, allowing them a single pane of glass management to check their own network security status, and modify firewall policies through a complete customer-centric interface.

In addition, Fortinet's FortiAnalyzer centralized network security logging and reporting as well as FortiManager centralized security management solutions are deployed to provide complete management and reports to du customers.

Customers are also benefitting from high quality service from du, encompassing fast deployment and configuration, 24x7 monitoring, software scalability and expert support, and a subscription based billing with minimal upfront cost.

“This alliance with du has reaffirmed Fortinet's position as a trusted partner for Communication Service Providers globally,” said Alain Penel, Regional Vice President- Middle East at Fortinet. “Fortinet's unique Security Fabric architecture empowers MSSPs to provide end-to-end security that maps to customers' varying environments and security requirements. This approach has helped du achieve competitive differentiation through unique, secure cloud-based services, while reducing operational costs and complexity.”

du has a managed security operation center (24x7) with Fortinet trained and certified in-house resources responsible for the management of the solution for its customers including service provisioning, services assurances, security management and security monitoring.
