SAN FRANCISCO–(BUSINESS WIRE)–lt;a href=”https://twitter.com/search?q=%24FTNT&src=ctag” target=”_blank”gt;$FTNTlt;/agt; lt;a href=”https://twitter.com/hashtag/CyberSecurity?src=hash” target=”_blank”gt;#CyberSecuritylt;/agt;–Ericom Software, a global leader in securing and connecting the unified
digital workspace, today announced that it has joined the Fortinet
Technology Alliances Partner Program. Fortinet® (NASDAQ:
FTNT) is a global leader in broad, automated and integrated
cybersecurity solutions. Integration of Ericom Shield® Remote
Browser Isolation (RBI) solution with FortiGate
Next-Generation Firewall
and Secure
Web Gateway
(SWG) provides Fortinet customers with airtight,
zero-trust protection from browser-borne threats that are unknown or
cannot yet be detected.

FortiGate Next Generation Firewall leverages security processors and
threat intelligence security services to deliver top-rated protection
against internet-borne threats, even those hidden in encrypted web
traffic. Ericom Shield adds a further essential layer of protection from
human error, malicious links, illicit cryptominers and undetectable
malware by isolating browsers in secure disposable containers located
remote from the end-user device and the network. Users enjoy smooth,
friction-free access to essential web-based services and assets, without
putting organizational resources at risk.

“The Fortinet
Security Fabric
 has an open architecture designed to
connect multiple security solutions into a unified framework, delivering
broad visibility, integrated threat detection and automated response to
address today’s sophisticated cybersecurity threats,” said Neil Prasad,
Senior Director of Product Marketing and Global Technology Alliances at
Fortinet. “Fortinet’s open approach enables partner solutions to
integrate with the Fortinet Security Fabric, further extending
Fortinet’s and its partners’ capabilities to protect enterprises across
the entire attack surface, from IoT to the Cloud. We are pleased to have
Ericom as a Fortinet technology alliance partner and welcome Ericom into
Fortinet’s open ecosystem, developing integrated solutions to address
customer needs.”

Westbury Bank, a Wisconsin-based provider of a broad range of retail and
commercial financial services, was among the first customers to
integrate Ericom Shield with its Fortinet FortiGate enterprise firewall
platform. “There is no enterprise today that could possibly convince me
that they are 100% protected all the time against all the latest
vulnerabilities,” explained Tom Sepic, CIO at Westbury Bank. “But even
if they are equipped with the latest detection-based solutions, they’re
still at risk from zero-day attacks and other advanced threats.
FortiGate and Ericom Shield close that dangerous gap.”

“Ericom is pleased to join the Fortinet Technology Alliances Partnership
Program and delighted to add a valuable layer of defense against
malicious web-borne content to Fortinet’s high-performance threat
protection solutions,” said David Canellos, CEO of Ericom. “Leading
cybersecurity experts are increasingly recognizing and recommending
remote browser isolation as must-have technology for defending critical
organizational infrastructure and data, without impeding productivity.
By partnering with Fortinet, Ericom is making tomorrow’s essential
cybersecurity solution available to its customers today.”

Ericom is showcasing Ericom Shield at the RSA Conference 2019 in San
Francisco on March 4-8. RSA attendees can visit Ericom Software at Booth
#6574 in the North Expo or schedule a demo by emailing [email protected].
