Program Highlights:
Fortinet's FortiPartner Program (FPP) is a global network of distributors and solution providers committed to providing world-class products, services and support to our customers. Fortinet's market-leading products and award-winning partner programs connect partners to the resources needed to develop expertise, grow business, increase customer satisfaction, and maximize profitability. In terms of program highlights, in the last year CRN's Annual Report Card (ARC) recognized Fortinet in the categories of Support and Partnership and presented the company with the Overall award in the category of Network Security. The company also saw great progress in new partner recruitment as well as development of the existing partner base. As a result, partner-led revenue had double digit growth year over year. In addition, Fortinet upped the ante in the MSSP market by unveiling a new, four-point program that gives Managed Security Service Providers (MSSPs) in the Americas beneficial pricing, dedicated technical support and MSSP-specific marketing programs. And most recently, the company announced new segmented online courses that prepare network administrators to implement, manage and operate Fortinet products within a network. The courses cover Fortinet's expansive network security portfolio, have been strategically-designed for self-paced instruction and are available free to all registered Fortinet channel partners.
