Image source: https://www.hpe.com/events/discover/content/images/content_tracks/hybrid.jpgDiscover 2017 is Hewlett Packard Enterprise’s premier customer event, with over 9,000 IT professionals in attendance. The event showcases the absolute latest technology developments from HPE and its partners including Fortinet, and brings together industry-leading minds for three days of learning, growth and valuable networking.

Given the challenges many attendees face from today’s sophisticated and rapidly evolving threats, a key focus area of the event will be cybersecurity. The isolated, proprietary security devices most organizations have deployed over the past decade are simply not designed to solve today’s cybersecurity challenges. To support today’s dynamic networks, security needs to see and understand every device on the network, dynamically segment traffic at the access point based on policy, and monitor and protect data and resources across the entire distributed environment, from IoT, through the network core, and into the cloud.

The Fortinet Security Fabric is an architectural approach to security designed to connect security solutions into a unified framework. Fortinet’s Security Fabric enables networks to collect and share intelligence between devices and vendors, unify management, and synchronize and automate responses to threats.

Fortinet is a Gold sponsor at Discover 2017, and will showcase several important security innovations to help you stay ahead of cyber threats. Join Fortinet at booth 231 while you’re at Discover 2017 to see a demo of the Fortinet Security Fabric in action! We’ll also have technical experts on hand to discuss any security needs you may have, and provide information on our industry-leading Fortinet products and solutions.

I’d also like to highlight the following key Fortinet speaking engagements to add to your agenda while you’re at the event:
