Fortinet recently hosted its Accelerate 2023 SAARC Cybersecurity Event across 11 cities in India & SAARC, bringing together over 3000+ customers and partners. The conference aimed to explore emerging trends and opportunities in the cybersecurity field under the theme “Experience a secure future now.”
In today’s rapidly expanding threat landscape, cybercriminals are exploiting vulnerabilities at an unprecedented scale and speed. As network edges continue to grow, organizations must secure hybrid networks effectively. Addressing these challenges requires maintaining visibility, control, and response consistently. By automating, converging, and consolidating network and security, organizations can safeguard themselves from unexpected threats.
At Accelerate, the Fortinet leadership team delivered insightful keynote sessions covering a wide range of topics to educate partners and customers on the future of cybersecurity. The conference featured a Tech Expo with live demonstrations of the latest Fortinet cybersecurity solutions, as well as presentations, workshops, and updates to the NSE Certification program and Engage Partner Program, reflecting Fortinet’s commitment to closing the cybersecurity skills gap.
During the conference, Vishak Raman, Vice President of Sales, India, SAARC, SEAHK & ANZ at Fortinet emphasized the importance of a unified platform approach for consistent and coordinated security deployment. He said “Siloed security systems can overwhelm IT teams, hindering infrastructure visibility. To reduce complexity, all tools should integrate into a single ecosystem to exchange policies, security, and threat intelligence. Fortinet’s Security Fabric offers comprehensive protection across hybrid environments, including the cloud, operational technology (OT), and all edges. By investing in research and development, Fortinet aims to create solutions that keep pace with the relentless threats posed by cybercriminals.”
