Fortinet Explained

Fortinet is a billion-dollar multinational corporation headquartered in Sunnyvale, California with worldwide offices, that leads the industry when it comes to cybersecurity software and appliances. They were founded 19 years ago, in 2000, by Ken Xie and Michael Xi, two Chinese-born American brothers. The company develops and distributes services and appliances such as firewalls, anti-virus software and intrusion prevention and endpoint security.

While the company started in 2000, they spent two years in the research and development stage before releasing their first product, the FortiGate, in 2002. The company had raised $13 million in private funding from 2000 to 2003, and in 2008, the company became profitable in the third quarter; Fortinet was growing exponentially.

We focus on providing Fortinet’s SIEM solutions to businesses, helping them get coverage on all devices within a network for the cost of one device from other cybersecurity companies; as you can see, we strive to deliver both the best products and prices in the industry. The reason that this is possible is because the software within the SIEM solution centralizes the data and reporting for every device instead of having to install certain software to all devices. This makes it easy to run reports, as well.
