Ingram Micro Selected as Fortinet’s U.S. Distributor of the Year

Recognition celebrates industry leaders’ high-performance alliance, shining the spotlight on Ingram Micro’s security expertise and successful Fortinet Security as a Service Offerings

IRVINE, Calif., July 9, 2019 Empowering channel partners to deliver security solutions without compromise, Ingram Micro Inc. is pleased to announce it has once again been selected as Fortinet’s Distributor of the Year for the U.S.

Presented earlier this year at Fortinet’s Accelerate 2019 event, the annual award recognizes the distributor’s achievements and outstanding growth within Fortinet’s channel partner ecosystem. Fortinet honored Ingram Micro’s continued ability to deliver greater value and more meaningful results for Fortinet partners, particularly around the areas of sales, technical and marketing enablement, and overall business execution.

“We are pleased once again to name Ingram Micro Fortinet’s Distributor of the Year for the U.S.,” says Jon Bove, vice president of channel sales, Fortinet. “With 100% of our efforts focused on the channel, we recognize the Ingram Micro team as a valuable business partner that continually goes above and beyond to drive new channel business and expand our reach.”

A prime example of Ingram Micro’s relentless efforts to grow Fortinet’s business through innovation and enablement is the Ingram Micro Fortinet Security as a Service (SECaaS) program. Established in 2018, the high-impact program allows channel partners the flexibility to combine Fortinet’s industry leading security products and services with Ingram Micro’s extensive support and expertise. Designed to broaden the security portfolios of managed security service providers (MSPs), the channel program makes it frictionless for partners to offer more advanced, security-focused technologies and threat intelligence to their customers through a monthly recurring procurement mode.

“The ever-evolving and sophisticated threat landscape remains one of the most important concerns to businesses of all sizes, in every vertical market, and has made the need for enterprise-grade security solutions universal,” says Eric Kohl, vice president of security, Ingram Micro. “By leveraging Ingram Micro’s Fortinet SECaaS program, channel partners can engage businesses with greater confidence and offer complete protection and proactive management of their network. Whether a Fortinet channel partner wants to build, bolster or scale their security practice, Ingram Micro is ready. Thank you to the entire Fortinet team for your collaboration, and for recognizing Ingram Micro as an indispensable business partner.”
