An Executive Dialogue


After the massive disruption of the last year, the new normal is that there is no such thing as normal. We must be ready for change and adapt quickly, and digital transformation is not optional.

In this context, edges are becoming the new battlefield, with the Cloud being a critical point to control. That is the now normal. In today’s digital world, you cannot sacrifice security for adaptability. For over twenty years Fortinet has been focused on converging networking and cyber-security to maximize adaptability. 

Your organization is an important and valued Fortinet customer. That is why we have created the Fortinet Customer Executive Exchange.  It is designed to inform you and to enable you. Inform you about Fortinet and how we see the future of business from a cybersecurity and networking perspective; enable you to advance into the now normal with confidence.  

However, this isn’t a one-way street. The Customer Executive Exchange is a conversation between a small group of customer executives and our executives. Although you will hear from our Founder, CFO, CMO, and CTO, the greater part of the meeting will be a round-table discussion where you will have a direct conversation with these Fortinet executives and with each other.  

We hope you will join us. Register now, because space is limited.
