Hengelo, 15 September 2015 - Previder has been made a Gold Partner of the network security specialist Fortinet. Previder's newly acquired partner status means it can provide customers with even better support as a high-end Managed Security Service Provider.
"Fortinet Gold Partners have exceptional knowledge of network security and know everything there is to know about the installation, implementation and management of our products", explains Marc Jepkes, Business Manager Benelux at Fortinet. "Over the years, Previder has built up a tremendous amount of expertise regarding our products and have become a very important partner for us. In fact, we regard them as an extension of our own organisation."
With its new Gold Status, Previder strengthens its expertise as a Managed Security Service Provider (MSSP), one of the organisation's key spearheads. Network security has become an increasingly important issue for end-users in recent years. These days, business-critical applications are often outsourced, yet at the same time, there is a growing threat of cyber crime. As a result of these developments, Previder has noticed a sharp increase in recent years in the number of customer enquiries regarding data and application security. This increase is expected to continue in the next few years.
"Previder's ambition is to provide the highest quality service, with the best uptime guarantees and performance. In today's era of cloud computing, network security is an important part of our portfolio and an important criterion with which to differentiate ourselves. Fortinet is used, for example, for the security of DigiD environments that are hosted on our IaaS platform. These environments demand the highest possible security requirements, which we are able to meet by implementing Fortinet's solutions", explains Eric Vredeveldt, Previder's director.
