Fortinet to Host Xtreme Team Events in 2015

Fortinet to Host Three Xtreme Team Partner Events in 2015, Bringing Together the Best Technical Minds in Cybersecurity

Premiere Hands-On Training Events for Top Fortinet Partners to be Held in the US, Latin America and Canada in October and November

Last September 22, 2015, Fortinet announced that it will host three Xtreme Team technical partner conferences in 2015, adding an inaugural event in the U.S. to the already successful Latin America and Canada stops. The events bring together premiere systems engineering talent from across the U.S., Latin America and Canada to review industry best practices and develop new approaches to cybersecurity. These exclusive events will provide Fortinet partners with interactive, hands-on training sessions designed to help them expand their technical skills on the Fortinet end-to-end platform and increase their ability to design best-in-class solutions to help protecting customers from cyber crime.

In 2006, Fortinet launched its annual Xtreme Team events in Latin America and more recently, in 2010, added an event in Canada. Since that time, the company has provided Fortinet partner representatives with exclusive training, content and awards, sales achievements and technical excellence. Due to its growing success, Fortinet is expanding the reach of its Xtreme Team events to the U.S. for the first time this year. With this investment, even more partners are offered the opportunity to extend their vision, acquire new technical skills, advance their expertise in cutting-edge Fortinet technologies, and ultimately grow their business.

Vice President, Americas Channels and Enhanced Technologies for Fortinet

Typical partner-focused events target the masses with vendor product updates and a lot of presentations that don’t provide a great deal of substance for the channel. Our Xtreme Team events offer deeper engagements with our partners that focus on innovation and making strides together in changing how we think about and practice security. These hands-on events, delivered by our top technical field experts, have proven to help our partners grow their business with Fortinet and drive incremental revenue. We’re excited to expand our event reach this year to even more loyal Fortinet partners.
