Fortinet hosts first ‘Africa Virtual Security Day’

Fortinet will host its first ‘Africa Virtual Security Day’ on 16 September 2020, bringing to pan-African CEOs, CIOs and CISOs the latest updates on building a dynamic security strategy and how to securely enable digital innovation.

“Organisations must cope with attack surface growth, advanced threats, and increased management complexity,” Perry Hutton Regional VP – Africa at Fortinet, said.

At the event, international experts will give customers and partners an overview of the key trends and challenges facing Africa’s senior executives, featuring strategy-focused plenary sessions, deep-dive technology tracks, and channel tracks.

In the plenary session, experts will cover the need for accelerated security for accelerated digitisation, security as a business enabler, and trends in AI-enabled security.

The technology sessions will address developments in cloud, SD-WAN and SASE, OT, EDR, Zero Trust models and Security Operations.

For channel partners and potential partners, a dedicated channel track will outline how to grow an SMB security footprint with Fortinet, building a renewal and expansion strategy, why partners should specialise, deal registration, the value of the partner portal and current promotions.

The day will round off with Fortinet’s regional channel awards.

Hutton added, “By hosting this as a virtual event, Fortinet is now able to give thousands of delegates from across Africa a taste of our hugely popular ‘Accelerate’ events.

“Our global customer and partner events are renowned for keeping attendees up to date with the latest threat trends, solutions and information security business opportunities. This virtual event will be no different, and enhanced by the fact that its virtual nature allows us to hear content from a larger number of expert international presenters.”
