Michael Joseph – Regional Director System Engineering, SAARC, at Fortinet, and Navin Mehra, Regional Director, India at Fortinet shared their expertise at the conference and spoke about the emerging threat landscape and security trends.

Speaking at the conference, Michael Joseph highlighted: “Digital transformation is creating new operating and service delivery models that provide undeniable value to users through technologies such as IoT, mobile computing and cloud-based services, generating a vast digital attack surface. As the speed and scale of cyber threats expands, security must take on its own transformation by integrating into all areas of digital technology and be able to translate user intent into automated business response. FortiOS 6.0 delivers more than 200 new features and capabilities that were designed to provide the broad visibility, integrated threat intelligence and automated response required for digital business.”

“We live in a time of increased connectivity where devices that were not traditionally part of the network are quickly being adopted into the IT ecosystem to create greater convenience, opportunities and to fuel innovation. However, the end result of this is a more complex network with an expanded attack surface that attracts advanced threats,” said Shahed Kamal, Director-Enterprise Business at Smart Technologies (BD) Ltd. “This can create a dilemma for companies on whether to choose innovation or security that can ultimately stifle their growth.
