Leading cybersecurity company Fortinet has unveiled its plans to bolster its presence in India and the SAARC region by introducing two dedicated data centers. These new facilities are set to enhance the accessibility of Fortinet’s Universal Secure Access Service Edge (SASE), AI-powered Security Services, and FortiCloud offerings to a broader customer base.
The data centers, located in Pune and Bengaluru, are strategic additions to Fortinet’s existing Development Centre and Support Centre investments in India. The expansion aims to address the escalating demand for robust cybersecurity solutions and advanced data protection in the region.
Vishak Raman, Vice President of Sales, India, SAARC, SEAHK & ANZ at Fortinet, emphasized the significance of these data centers, stating, “As Fortinet strengthens its presence with the addition of these new data centers in Pune and Bengaluru, it is well-positioned to meet the critical security challenges and enhance the security landscape in India and the broader SAARC region.”
Fortinet’s Universal SASE is a cutting-edge solution that seamlessly combines networking and security services, catering to the requirements of today’s hybrid workforce. It extends its protective umbrella from network edges to microbranches, ensuring secure access to applications while delivering a high return on investment through consolidation and an improved digital user experience.
Furthermore, FortiGuard AI-Powered Security Services stand out for their market-leading AI-driven security capabilities, safeguarding application content, web traffic, devices, and users across various deployment scenarios. Kishore Reddy, Senior Vice President, Engineering, and Managing Director, India, at Fortinet, described Fortinet’s Universal SASE solution as “a testament to our innovative approach, symbolizing a paradigm shift in cybersecurity.”
These investments empower organizations to overcome the challenges of hybrid work environments, providing the essential tools and intelligence required to enhance security and optimize user experiences.
FortiCloud, another integral part of Fortinet’s portfolio, serves as the platform for delivering security and security management services. It simplifies the process of connecting, protecting, and delivering data and applications, whether on-premises or in the cloud.
With these new data centers, Fortinet is poised to offer its state-of-the-art cybersecurity services to a more extensive customer base in India and the SAARC region, contributing to the region’s enhanced cybersecurity landscape and resilience in the face of evolving threats.
