"Fortinet solutions provide businesses of all sizes with robust, unified and cost-effective security solutions in a single device, without compromising network performance and reliability," stated Prevost. "Backed with CentraComm's installation and management services, customers are able to deploy fully integrated security technologies, delivering unmatched protection and lowering ownership costs. UTM is the fastest growing market segment in network security for organizations of all sizes and industries. Adding Fortinet to our managed security services provides us a proven platform to well-serve small and mid-size businesses."

In the past, businesses had to rely on a variety of standalone security solutions to safeguard their valuable data and networks against a multitude of threats — solutions which were often costly, complex and difficult to manage.  Today, IT organizations are consolidating distinct functions wherever possible, and network security is not exempt from this trend.  Fortinet systems integrate the industry's broadest suite of security technologies, including Firewall, VPN (both SSL and IPsec), Antivirus, Intrusion Prevention (IPS), Application Control, Web Filtering, AntiSpam, Wireless Controller, and WAN Acceleration, all of which can be deployed individually to complement legacy solutions or combined for a comprehensive threat management solution.   UTM is the new standard for network security, and Fortinet is the Gartner Magic Quadrant market leader and pioneer. CentraComm has partnered with Fortinet to offer customers cost-effective high-performance protection against dynamic security threats while simplifying the IT infrastructure.

"CentraComm was built on a history as an internet service and data center provider, so we're uniquely positioned as a leading Managed Security Services provider," said Mark Prevost, Vice President Sales and Marketing. "Every day we leverage our history and experience as an ISP to provide cutting edge security and networking solutions and services to our customers. Our team of network security engineers is certified, experienced, and on-point 24/7/365 through our industry-leading NOC. More than merely installing the right equipment in the right places, we take a holistic business-wide approach to security, utilizing our unrivaled expertise, unmatched customer service, and unparalleled best-of-breed products and technology.
