Melbourne's Acurus has been recognised as Fortinet’s 'Top 2015 Enhanced Technology Partner’ for the Asia-Pacific.
Acurus was recognised last week at Fortinet’s global partner conference in Cancun, Mexico, which was attended by 1,200 partners from 60 countries.
Fortinet Australia senior director Jon McGettigan said that Acurus has "excelled at solving enterprise security challenges by installing and configuring a wide variety of Fortinet’s high performance solutions in a cost-effective manner”.
Acurus is an IT consulting business servicing the healthcare, retail, telecommunications, utilities and insurance industries in Australasia.
Acurus managing director Jason Matser said that Fortinet's “attention to detail has been unwavering" and that the company was "delighted" to win the award.
Fortinet is a US-based vendor founded in 2000 by brothers Ken and Michael Xie. The company sells high performance network security products and services including their flagship FortiGate firewall.
"Fortinet's growth and success could not have been achieved without the partnership of all of our resellers and distributors working together with us to deliver security without compromise," Ken Xie said.
