TNP becomes Fortinet cyber security elite partner

16 November 2018

Global cyber security expert Fortinet has appointed TNP (The Networking People) as a ‘Security Fabric Expert Partner’.

Lancaster-based TNP focuses on high capacity users of the internet and networking across the public sector, including local government, healthcare and education. The company has developed what it describes as a “highly efficient and cost-effective” model that enables large organisations to design, build and operate their own networks independently of the established telecoms giants.

Fortinet Security Fabric aims to provide broad protection and visibility to every network segment, device and appliance, whether virtual, in the cloud or on premises. Many of the world’s leading companies are said to rely on the fabric to segment their entire network and provide “superior” protection against sophisticated threats.

As well as being a Security Fabric Expert Partner, TNP is also a Fortinet Platinum Partner and claims this signifies that it delivers the “most advanced” levels of network security to customers. TNP commercial director Chris Wade says: “To cover today’s attack surface, our company must demonstrate an ability to build a multi-layered security approach for the entire network, from IoT through to the cloud.

“As a Fortinet Platinum Partner, our staff are trained to deliver exceptional levels of service and able to confidently handle complex deployment requirements.”

Wade also points out that the government’s policy on cyber security stresses that users at all levels must ensure they are safeguarding their own systems. “Customers must therefore demand from their suppliers the highest levels of competence in the field of network and internet security,” says Wade.
