How We Do It

The Managed Security Service Provider (MSSP) market is growing rapidly due to the hourly increase of computer and network security threats.  Those threats increase the risk of using computers and networks – including, of course, the Internet – for all companies from very large to very small. Security threats are indiscriminate to company size. This makes the problem especially acute for small to medium enterprises (SME) where manpower and IT budgets are both in short supply. This is the main reason that SMEs are quickly becoming the largest user of MSSP services.

SMEs are often unable to keep up with their network security needs, especially as their business grows and expands to multiple locations. To resolve this problem, Fortinet is helping MSSPs provision security application offerings including firewalls, virtual private networks (VPNs), gateway anti-virus, Web content filtering, and intrusion detection and prevention (IDS/IPS) to meet the needs of SME customers.

BC Networks turned to Fortinet’s comprehensive set of products and services, which include the FortiGate™ systems, to provide combined security services to customers in an efficient and cost effective manner. An increasing number of MSSPs are providing in-depth reporting, logging and monitoring capabilities that are critical for their business success. The multiple security applications of each FortiGate model, along with the management solutions that include highly differentiated reporting and logging with FortiAnalyzer appliances, provide a perfect platform on which to build a managed security service. Using Fortinet’s FortiManager™ centralized management tool, BC Networks was able to lower our maintenance and provisioning overhead and service implementation cost.
