NEC awarded Fortinet’s Australian MSSP/Service Provider of the Year

NEC has been named Fortinet’s Australian MSSP/Service Provider of the Year, which is awarded to the managed security services provider (MSSP) that builds a strong managed service for customers.

The Fortinet Australian partner awards recognise the achievements of partners that have helped customers 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.

Fortinet was excited to celebrate the value of the contributions made by its entire partner ecosystem in 2020. Due to their hard work, Fortinet saw record quarters as customers mobilised to meet changing workplace challenges. In 2021, Fortinet plans to extend its significant investment in training nationally, maintain investment in existing partners, and help 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.

NEC was selected based on year-on-year revenue growth, leading with Fortinet technologies, partner program compliance, training, and incorporating Fortinet technologies into a managed service offering.

“NEC has gone to market with a range of products and services aimed at the enterprise market, achieving significant success in this area. NEC has productised, launched, and sold these services in 2020; a remarkable achievement from a very strong partner.”
Tim Fitzgerald, channel director, Fortinet

“Having worked with Fortinet for many years, it’s an honour to be selected for this award. NEC is constantly looking for new ways to add value to Fortinet technologies to deliver better outcomes for customers. We’re committed to this ongoing partnership and look forward to continuing to work with Fortinet into the future to deliver innovative and robust security solutions to our customers.”
