Fortinet has acknowledged Securicom as a Fortnet Expert, making it one of only four companies in Africa to achieve this level on the global developer’s MSSP Partner Programme.

Cyber security breaches are on the rise and companies are obliged to secure critical infrastructure to protect critical information and ensure compliance with legislation. Technology resellers and system integrators are entering the market to address this growing demand for hardware, software, and engineering inclusive security services. But not all of them are created equal.

Designation as a Fortinet Expert is reserved for proven Fortinet Solution experts that can deliver the full spectrum of Fortinet solutions and have a team of highly trained and certified Fortinet specialists who are able to manage the most complex customer deployments.

Fortinet’s expanded and redesigned security portfolio is comprised of the broadest, most integrated, and highly automated security solutions in the world. These new solutions are designed to meet the security demands of organizations – today and tomorrow – with the fastest and most advanced hardware and software engineering, most deeply integrated solutions, and expansive portfolio in the security market (

Fortinet Expert level is the highest ranking that a partner can achieve without being a global company. Securicom, head quartered in South Africa, has offices in Johannesburg, Cape Town and Namibia, and has customers across the world.

“It is a great source of pride that Securicom has been elevated to the highest level possible on Fortinet’s MSSP Partner Programme for a non global company. Having met stringent criteria, we are acknowledged for our capacity to deliver the length and breadth of Fortinet’s solutions.

“The greatest advantage for companies outsourcing their IT security to Securicom is that it provides them with access to a team of dedicated engineers who not only have the necessary skill-set to do the job well, but who also understand the importance of understanding the methods and motivation behind attacks. With us, our clients have peace of mind, with around the clock monitoring, qualified management and support, as well as tried and tested technologies. We eat, sleep and drink IT security, and we have been for over two decades,” says Richard Broeke, Managing Director: Securicom.

Securiom provides a range of fully-managed solutions which are hosted and maintained upstream to conserve bandwidth and minimise risks.
