Leading cyber security solutions developer Fortinet has acknowledged South Africa-based managed IT security services company, Securicom, as a Fortinet Expert, making it one of only four companies in Africa to achieve this level on the global developer’s stringent MSSP Partner Programme.

Cyber security breaches are on the rise and companies are obliged to secure critical infrastructure to protect critical information and ensure compliance with legislation. Technology resellers and system integrators are entering the market to address this growing demand for hardware, software and engineering inclusive security services. But not all of them are created equal.

Fortinet’s expanded and redesigned security portfolio comprises the broadest, most integrated and highly automated security solutions in the world. These new solutions are designed to meet the security demands of organisations – today and tomorrow – with the fastest and most advanced hardware and software engineering, most deeply integrated solutions and expansive portfolio in the security market (
