Fortinet, the global leader in broad, integrated, and automated cybersecurity solutions, recently hosted top customers from Sri Lanka & SAARC at Fortinet LEAP 2022 Security Summit in Istanbul, Turkey. The event shared essential practices and recommendations to help organizations strengthen their security posture and was attended by over 80+ customers. With cyberattacks on the rise, the event provided critical insights into today’s most pressing cybersecurity challenges and allowed professionals to challenge existing knowledge and gain new ideas from peers and industry experts for further protecting their organizations.
Vishak Raman, Vice President of Sales, India, SAARC, and Southeast Asia, Fortinet, spoke about the need to reduce the complexity of security processes and tools and recommended consolidating technologies as much as possible to simplify operations. He said, “As workplace goes hybrid, organizations are experiencing significant security gaps, particularly if they don’t have the right security architecture and talent in place. Even when they do, many organizations struggle to integrate these solutions with the rest of their security architecture. Siloed security systems can make it difficult for IT teams to create and maintain cohesive visibility across their infrastructure. To reduce complexity, organizations need to build a security architecture where all tools are integrated under a single ecosystem to deliver centralized visibility, share intelligence, automate threat response, and streamline security management. This “mesh” should extend to all parts of the infrastructure—public and private clouds, edge and IoT resources, OT infrastructure, and on-premises services. It should include all aspects of security management, threat detection and response, compliance reporting, and policy management.”
