TNP becomes Fortinet Security Fabric Expert Partner02/10/2018
Public sector digital network specialist TNP (The Networking People (Nothwest) Ltd) has been appointed a Security Fabric Expert Partner with Fortinet, a global leader in broad, integrated and automated cybersecurity solutions.
This level of Fortinet recognition for partners helps them to demonstrate their expertise in building security approaches designed to dynamically adapt to today’s evolving IT infrastructure.
TNP also is a Fortinet Platinum Partner which signifies that the Lancaster-based company delivers the most advanced levels of network security and the full range of Fortinet technologies to its customers in local authorities, health trusts and other public sector organisations.
Fortinet Security Fabric delivers broad protection and visibility to every network segment, device and appliance, whether virtual, in the cloud or on premises.
TNP Commercial Director Chris Wade explains: “To cover today’s attack surface, our company must demonstrate an ability to build a multi-layered security approach for the entire network, from IoT (the Internet of Things) through to the Cloud.
As a Fortinet Platinum Partner, our staff are trained to deliver exceptional levels of service and able to confidently handle complex deployment requirements while ensuring outstanding levels of customer satisfaction and support. Achieving and maintaining that standard gives a huge amount of confidence to our customers.
“The Government’s policy on cyber security stresses that users at all levels must ensure they are safeguarding their own systems. Customers must therefore demand from their suppliers the highest levels of competence in the field of network and internet security.”
Many of the world’s leading companies rely on the Fortinet Security Fabric to segment their entire network and provide superior protection against sophisticated threats. 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 giants.
Chris Wade adds: “The role of the digital network in business strategy and maintaining public services 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.”
