Fortinet announces winners of Australian partner awards

March 29, 2021: Canberra, Australia —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.”

Australian Fabric Partner of the Year: Sliced Tech

The Fabric Partner of the Year award goes to the partner that has excelled in selling a range of Fortinet products beyond just the core Fortinet offerings.

Tim Fitzgerald said, “The Fortinet security fabric approach means that all Fortinet products integrate with each other to create a stronger overall security posture. Slicedtech has built a managed service using many Fortinet products and has taken these solutions to market. This approach saw Slicedtech achieve significant financial growth, making it a worthy recipient of this award.”
