TNP awarded top level Platinum Partner status by Fortinet16/11/2016

Public sector digital network specialist TNP (The Networking People (Northwest) Ltd) has been awarded the highest level of partner status by Fortinet, a global leader in high performance cyber security solutions.
The Platinum Partner award recognises that TNP is able to deliver the most advanced level of network security and the full range of Fortinet technologies to customers..

TNP Commercial Director Chris Wade explains: “To become a Fortinet Platinum Partner you have to demonstrate a complete understanding of the threats to networks. You must also have staff trained to deliver exceptional levels of service and able to confidently handle complex deployment requirements while showing outstanding levels of customer satisfaction and support.”

“It takes an immense amount of work by everyone within our organisation to achieve and maintain that standard but it also gives a huge amount of confidence to our customers. Recent announcements of new spending by the Government of cyber security have highlighted the threats to public sector bodies and business.

But the Government has also stressed that users at all levels must ensure they are safeguarding their own systems. That is why customers demand from their suppliers the highest levels of competence in the field of network and internet security.”

Fortinet Security Fabric is used by many of the world’s leading companies across their IT infrastructure to intelligently protect their entire network, from the endpoint to the cloud, delivering integrated and intelligent security that won’t slow down.

Lancaster-based TNP focuses on high capacity users of the internet and networking across the public sector including local government, healthcare and education. The company has developed a highly efficient and cost-effective model that enables large organisations to design, build and operate their own networks independently of the established telecoms companies.

Chris Wade adds: “The role of the network in business strategy has never been more important, and ensuring it is both fast and secure is critical to success. Having the right security can make the difference between running a smooth, safe operation or being the latest security breach headline.”
