Fortinet announced last March 25, 2015, that its broad network security training and certification program is being rapidly adopted across the globe, as companies look to expand their knowledge and expertise to protect valuable data from cyber attacks. The Fortinet Network Security Expert (NSE) program was launched at the Fortinet Global Partner Conference (GPC) last January 2015. The program aims to equip participants to fully harness the power of Fortinet’s fast, secure and global security platform, and give them recognition as elite industry security professionals.
Within 60-days of rolling out the NSE training at the Fortinet global partner conference, more than 3,500 professionals registered and began the program, with over 10,000 participants expected to complete a level of NSE certification this year.
