We've Received Fortinet Gold Partner Status

MD at Node4

The many aspects that make up a decent SLA are not just important factors in customer relationships. Quality, availability, responsibility and capability are just as important to us when working with our technology partners.

In order to deliver unrivaled services to our customers, the Node4 team takes the relationships we develop with industry peers extremely seriously. We commit to being both the easiest and most competent partner to work with, in order to access leading and cutting-edge technologies to add to our portfolio.

“We only pick a handful of technology businesses to team up with and represent, and those we do, are chosen for their innovation, feature-rich products, reliability and customer-focused culture. They work with us for much the same reason and we are proud to have built solid partnerships with many of the best technology vendors around the world,” said Network Architect, Glenn Akester.

One such partner, Fortinet, is well-established as delivering first-class network and security services to businesses of all sizes, from SMB to Enterprise. It only partners with industry-leading companies to ensure that customers are connected to the expertise, services, and technologies they need. That’s why we are delighted to have recently been awarded Fortinet Gold Partner status.

We’ve worked with Fortinet since 2014. Through our experience of implementing and delivering their products and the expertise, capability and qualifications we have inhouse, we have progressed through the ranks to gold partner status.

Since this is the only way to achieve this level of partner status, becoming a gold partner validates our ability to sell Fortinet’s end-to-end solutions. Using their integrated portfolio of products, including firewalls, switches and wireless access points, we deliver market-leading Next-Generation Firewall, SD-WAN and SD-Branch solutions.

It also means we stand shoulder to shoulder receive the highest level of support, advanced SLA’s, and the best deals to pass on to customers, so it’s great news for us and everyone we work with that we continue to achieve these standards.

We add this new status to a host of other industry accreditations from other technology giants, which means we are perfectly placed to deliver solution sets from world-class providers, all over the world, who fit seamlessly within our current offering and compliment the solutions and products we already sell.

We are always evaluating which new technologies will positively impact the way our customers do business and building partnerships to make sure that we can make these solutions available. It turns out in our industry, it’s what we know and who we know that makes us a world-class business to work with.
