The current shift to remote work as a result of Covid-19 has forced new learnings in business agility. Conversely, the new working environment has paved the way for a new wave of advanced cybersecurity threats. Partners are increasingly being relied on by customers across industries to provide simplified, value-added, strategic support, as they increase their investments in cybersecurity.

“I am excited to join Fortinet at a time when channel partners play a key role in helping organisations maintain business continuity,” said Grennan.

“My top priority is to work together with partners to understand their focus and help them transform with Fortinet at a new level. It will deliver a better customer transformation experience and enhance Fortinet’s overall solution and service offering,” he added.
