Sunnyvale, CA-based Fortinet® (NASDAQ: FTNT) – a global leader in high-performance network security products and services today announced that it would partner with AB Motorsports for the remainder of the 2015 racing season serving as a primary sponsor of the #77 INEX bandolero and #77 WKA Go-karts in the WKA Gold Cup Series.
“Having a creative and supportive brand like Fortinet backing the #77 vehicles gives us even more reason to think that the remainder of the 2015 season will include a great ending to our year,” Jason Alder said. “Fortinet has made a big name for itself within their industry. They have been recognized as a leader in the Unified Threat Management (UTM) industry according to Gartner for the seventh year in a row. Good partners are important to succeed in racing, and we’re thrilled about building this new relationship with Fortinet,” says Alder.
They have created the Fortinet Nationwide “Fast and Secure Tour” which mobilizes network security and takes to the road with the FortiExpress, to demonstrate Fortinet’s enterprise high performance, integrated network security platform. FortiExpress is a highly sophisticated, articulated 18-wheeled mobile showcase that brings Fortinet’s Network Security Platform to life. The FortiExpress is set to travel nationwide as part of Fortinet’s “Fast and Secure Tour.” Fortinet has asked AB Motorsports to bring the #77 bandolero to some of these events including:
October 29, 2015 - Pittsburgh, PA
November 2, 2015 - Wells Fargo Center, Philadelphia, PA
November 7, 2015 - Pittsburgh, PA
November 20, 2015 – Redskins Park, Ashburn, VA
“Packed with an array of advanced security technologies that would make Optimus Prime blush, the FortiExpress puts Fortinet’s Network Security Platform on the map – literally,” said John Maddison, vice president of marketing at Fortinet. “The ‘Fast and Secure Tour’ gives our partners an exciting and new way to demonstrate the latest in network security, including next-generation firewalls, advanced threat protection appliances, web application firewalls, DDoS solutions, and much, much more.”
Maddison concludes, “There is nothing like the FortiExpress. Customers and partners will want to see cutting edge security in action, right in their town. It’s one thing to give a demo online, but nothing beats face-to-face interaction, and we’re excited to be in the industry’s driver seat, taking network security to new places.”
