Help AG gets Fortinet certification, leverages solutions across services
Help AG, a regional cyber security company, has been awarded the status of an authorised reseller with Fortinet for the Middle East region. Fortinet’s Enterprise Firewall, Advanced Persistent Threat Detection, Application Security solutions, Fortinet Security Fabric, will allow Help AG to address security challenges faced by enterprise customers. It will enhance the value proposition of these solutions by bundling them with professional services and locally-delivered 24×7 support.
The partnership will focus on the UAE, Qatar and Saudi Arabia with Help AG expecting good uptake of the vendor’s solutions by the banking and finance, government, oil and gas, aviation, retail, healthcare, hospitality, education, media, defence and telco sectors.
The reseller will provide the consultative, installation and support services associated with Fortinet’s deployments. Help AG is currently a Silver partner in the Fortinet Partner Programme, and Berner explains that his company is working to achieve the highest partnership level within the coming quarter.
“Fortinet recently crossed a milestone by successfully being awarded over 350 patents, which is testament to the effort they put into research and development in the field of cyber security. Help AG shares this commitment to technical expertise and their technologies fit well into our overall strategy to provide best-of-breed cyber security solutions to distributed and large enterprises,” said Stephan Berner, CEO at Help AG.
In recent years, Help AG has channeled its efforts into developing a comprehensive cyber security framework called the Help AG Zero-Trust Architecture. This model is based around three principles – secured access for all resources regardless of location; stringently applied least access control; and fine-grain monitoring and logging of all network traffic.
Fortinet’s Enterprise Firewall and Application Security solutions complement additional best-in-class technologies which Help AG leverages to deliver this framework.
