Kinetic IT has won the Australian OT Partner award in the Fortinet Partner of the Year awards.
The Fortinet awards recognise partners that have helped customers to securely accelerate the move beyond traditional networks. The awards are judged on factors including enhanced innovation, executive engagement, year-on-year revenue growth and investment in training, specialisations and certifications, and success in leading customer engagements with Fortinet.
Kinetic IT’s Head of Strategic Alliances, Aran Collins, welcomed the news. “We’re humbled to be recognised by our strategic partner Fortinet for our efforts to drive innovation for our customers and across the wider technology sector.
“Many of Kinetic IT’s customers provide critical services to the community. In partnership with Fortinet, Kinetic IT has been advancing the security profile of Operational Technology systems to better protect these vital community services. We are incredibly proud to be recognised for our efforts in this area,” he said.
Tim Fitzgerald, Channel Director for Fortinet Australia, said: “Fortinet is proud to announce the winners of the Australian partner awards. The awards recognise the valuable contributions of the entire partner ecosystem throughout 2021, and the partners’ dedication and hard work to help customers adapt to the changing workplace, business environment and threat landscape of the future.”
Fitzgerald continued: “Fortinet has made significant investment in training and certifications, working with partners to understand where the skills gap remains and to strategically address this. Fortinet will continue to invest in its partners, helping them continue to provide value-driven approaches for customers with enhanced expertise. After seeing record growth in 2021, Fortinet is in a strong position to continue this growth in the coming year with new products, a strong team, and strong partner relationships.”
