Scott Nursten, CEO, ITHQ:
"We believe our new partner status with Fortinet will help us deliver even better solutions to our clients navigating both the ever-changing landscape of cyber threats and their rapidly shifting business needs.
The recent need to push teams into remote working might have improved productivity, but it has also dramatically increased attack surfaces: businesses all over the world have seen breaches rise as a result. More than ever before, security requires creative thinking and a layered approach.
We aim to deliver solutions that work in terms of brand protection, business model, compliance needs and ease of usability. Fortinet is an important part of that vision."
