du from Emirates Integrated Telecommunications Company (EITC) has selected Fortinet Security Fabric solutions as the foundation of its cloud unified threat management (UTM) managed security services. 

“For our clean pipe Internet offering, we vetted several vendors, and Fortinet met our stringent evaluation criteria which was based on the availability of a dedicated customer portal, security features, reporting capabilities, connectivity options and protocols available, as well providing the best price-performance solution,” said Farid Faraidooni, deputy CEO, ICT solutions, EITC.

“The business benefits post-implementation have been significant. The service is enabling enterprise customers to provide better protection and mitigation from cyberthreats such as viruses, botnets and advanced persistent threats. It has helped customers reduce their CAPEX by eliminating the cost of deploying and running on-premise hardware as well as hiring additional resources”.

“This alliance with du has reaffirmed Fortinet’s position as a trusted partner for communication service providers globally,” said Alain Penel, regional vice president- Middle East at Fortinet.
