Alain Penel - Fortinet Reduced“Sophisticated advanced persistent threats and recent serial high-profile data breaches have made regional organizations more security conscious that ever. In 2015, we expect to see cybercriminals, fueled by the success of high profile hacks, continue to innovate with an even greater focus on deceiving and evading existing security solutions,” says Alain Penel, Regional Vice President – Middle East, Fortinet.

“As attacks continue to become more advanced, so must the security solutions used by organizations to protect themselves. And, thanks to Fortinet’s ATP framework, the combination of our Prevent, Detect and Mitigate approach to advanced threats enables organizations to stop known threats before they infect the infrastructure, discover new threats and then learns to continually evolve and deliver enhanced threat prevention.” Penel added.
