Smart Technologies (BD) Ltd, one of leading IT distributors in Bangladesh, held a knowledge sharing conference at Pan Pacific Sonargaon Dhaka on Tuesday where Fortinet’s Third Generation of Network Security was launched in Bangladesh.
IT heads from different finance, telecom and software companies joined the event to learn about the latest innovations to the security fabric that can help protect their networks from sophisticated threats.
Michael Joseph, regional director system engineering, SAARC at Fortinet, and Navin Mehra, regional director, India at Fortinet, shared their expertise at the event. They spoke about the emerging threat landscape and security trends.
Speaking at the function, Michael Joseph said that digital transformation is creating new operating and service delivery models that provide undeniable value to users through technologies such as IoT, mobile computing and cloud-based services, generating a vast digital attack surface. As the speed and scale of cyber threats expands, security must take on its own transformation by integrating into all areas of digital technology and be able to translate user intent into automated business response. FortiOS 6.0 delivers more than 200 new features and capabilities that were designed to provide the broad visibility, integrated threat intelligence and automated response required for digital business, he added.
According to him, Fortinet security fabric is an integrated and automated security framework designed to protect today’s dynamic networks. It provides the broad visibility, integrated detection of advanced threats, and automated response, combined with the continuous trust assessment required to secure today’s digital business.
Shahed Kamal, director-enterprise business at Smart Technologies (BD) Ltd, said, “We live in a time of increased connectivity where devices that were not traditionally part of the network are quickly being adopted into the IT ecosystem to create greater convenience, opportunities and to fuel innovation. However, the end result of this is a more complex network with an expanded attack surface that attracts advanced threats.”
