But, in order to do that you need to know just what Fortinet is and how their services are utilized to help businesses thrive and avoid malicious online attacks.


If you’ve been keeping up with the blog posts here on our website, you may already be aware of what Fortinet is. However, refresher never hurt anyone and with our most recent blogs touching on managed threat detection and co-managed SIEM, we want to once again go over what Fortinet is and how cybersecurity companies use their services for the greater good of online security.

An Explanation of Fortinet

Headquartered in Sunnyvale, California and boasting a tremendous amount of worldwide offices, Fortinet is a billion-dollar multinational corporation that leads the industry when it comes to cybersecurity appliances and software. The company was founded 19 years ago in 2000 by two Chinees-born American brothers, Ken and Michael Xie. Fortinet focuses on developing and distributing services and appliances such as firewalls, anti-virus software and intrusion prevention and endpoint security.

Before their start in 2000, the company spent two years in a research and development state before even releasing their first product. Once they felt that everything was ready to launch, they released the FortiGate in 2002. Fortinet was quite successful in their start-up phase, raising $13 million in private funding from 2000 to 2003, and in 2008 the company finally became profitable in the third quarter.

Here at Stratozen, we focus on providing Fortinet’s SIEM solutions to businesses who need help getting coverage on all their devices within a network at a great cost. To put this into perspective, we can cover all of the devices within a network at the same price that it would cost other cybersecurity companies to cover just one device. We’re able to achieve this because the software within the SIEM solution centralizes the data and reporting for each device instead of having to install certain software to every single device.

Fortinet is an effective tool if cybersecurity companies utilize it properly, and we here at StratoZen know how to protect your company efficiently and at a great cost.
