Fortinet has announced the winners of its Australian partner awards, which recognise the achievements of partners that have helped customers to accelerate the move beyond traditional networks securely. The awards are judged on factors including year-on-year revenue growth, investment in training and marketing, and success in leading customer engagements with Fortinet.
Tim Fitzgerald, channel director, Fortinet, said, “Fortinet is excited to celebrate the value of the contributions made by its entire partner ecosystem in 2020. Due to their hard work, we saw record quarters as customers mobilised to meet changing workplace challenges. This year, Fortinet plans to extend its significant investment in training nationally, including continuing to offer free training, which was originally offered in 2020. Fortinet will also continue to invest in existing partners while selectively adding complementary partners and helping partners continue to add value for their customers. With new products in the pipeline and a strong team in place, Fortinet is well-positioned to support its partners for further growth in 2021 and beyond.”
