Nouveau Solutions Ltd. has become one of only five Fortinet ‘Gold Partners’, one of the highest accreditations offered by the manufacturer of hardware based anti-virus protection for computer networks.
Accreditation means that Nouveau has become one of a select group of companies authorised to implement the product in almost any environment from a SoHo (small, home) office to multi-national corporations and Internet Service Providers (ISPs).
Fortinet was defined as visionary in a Gartner ‘Magic Quadrant’ in June 2003, and products are up to five times more effective than similar products. The company’s award-winning FortiGate™ series of antivirus firewalls detect and eliminate the most damaging, content-based threats from email and Internet traffic such as viruses, worms and intrusions/attacks.
Additionally, individuals are prevented from downloading inappropriate Web content in accordance with organisations’ policies. At the first sign of new or emerging threats, Fortinet rapidly transmits information world-wide to units, ensuring that end users are quickly and efficiently protected.
Nouveau Solutions’ MD, Andy Stevens, said: “We took on Fortinet when it was very new to the market because it filled a gap. Although we were already selling similar products, in our opinion some environments are better served with the Fortinet solution. In the University environment, for example, some license-based structures prove too expensive for them because of the number of users. And some products are simply unable to handle the large bandwidth of the Janet network that many British Universities use.”
According to the British Chambers of Commerce, last year 67% of companies suffered a virus attack. And according to a DTI survey, the average cost of a security breach is £30,000, with one in five incidents causing disruption for over a week. MyDoom, to date the fastest and most pervasive worm attack on record, is believed to have reeked over $40 billion of damage worldwide1. Fortinet has a range of products to help protect every environment, from the smallest to the very largest, in organisations not wishing to rely on any single system to provide coverage against each type of threat.
“As security threats to systems grow more sophisticated, we have developed our expertise, built relationships, trained staff and even developed a Fortinet remote monitoring application for customers,” noted Stevens. “Now that Fortinet is a recognised brand name, and they’ve reviewed their channel infrastructure, we’ve had staff re-take their exams, both technical and sales, and deservedly earned one of their highest accreditations in the process.”
Many companies have existing firewall, VPN and IDS systems at headquarters and data centre locations, but few have protection at the network edge for content-based threats. FortiGate provides a valuable new layer of defense.
