Fortinet Expands Security Fabric Partner Ecosystem
And while on the subject of improving business opportunities for channel partners, Fortinet wins applause this week for extending its Security Fabric ecosystem with the launch of a Fabric-Ready Partner program for third-party integration.
Under the initiative, the Security Fabric ecosystem will be opened up to validated third-party vendors with peer-to-peer integration and commitments to ongoing interoperability. That's expected to make it easier for solution providers to pair Fortinet's products with products from other vendors, increasing the strategic value of the solutions that partners can provide.
The first batch of partners in the new program include endpoint, cloud, SIEM, management and vulnerability technology vendors including Brocade, Carbon Black, Centrify, Nozomi Networks, Pallerra, Pulse Secure, Qualys, Tufin, UBlqube, VeriSign, WhiteHat Security and Ziften
