SUNNYVALE, Calif., September 12, 2012 - Fortinet® (NASDAQ: FTNT), a world leader in high-performance network security, will be attending the Gartner Security & Risk Management Summit 2012 as a Platinum Sponsor and will share with the senior IT management community insights on how to address the new security challenges inherent to the practice of BYOD (Bring Your Own Device). At the event, which takes place 19 – 20 September 2012 at the Lancaster London Hotel, Robert Ayoub, Security Strategist at Fortinet, will present on the theme of ‘How to Make your Security ‘Aware’ in a BYOD World’.
Fortinet has conducted independent research that reveals the extent of the threat posed to the future of corporate IT systems by the first generation of BYOD users. In July, Fortinet released results of an international survey of more than 3,800 respondents from 15 countries that showed 1-in-4 of people have, or would, contravene company policy banning the use of personal devices or applications for work purposes.
During his Solution Provider Session presentation scheduled on Thursday September 20th at 9:15, Robert Ayoub will look at how businesses can retain control of their networks while giving users the information they need when they need it, and will explain how, with features such as client reputation, endpoint profiling and authentication, Fortinet can make security ‘aware’ through granular control over users, devices, data and applications.
The annual Gartner Security & Risk Management Summit gathers Gartner analysts and the security and risk management community from across Europe, bringing the latest research, insights and forward-thinking perspectives on the industry. The Summit features five in-depth programs and more than 50 sessions and provides the ability to collaborate and network with peers.
