Capgemini has entered into an agreement with Fortinet to offer cyber security services to the enterprise market.
The companies will jointly provide new packaged cybersecurity services such as web application security, security for new generation datacentres SDDC (software-defined datacentres), and Security Operation Centres specialised in Advanced Data Analysis (3rd generation capabilities) to help enterprise customers to detect and react to sophisticated cyber attacks.
Capgemini will work with Fortinet as a key partner, within its ecosystem of security product suppliers, to deliver physical and virtualised security protection and security supervision services.
Fortinet’s product portfolio - including FortiWeb web application firewalls, FortiGate network security appliances, and FortiDDoS Distributed Denial of Service attack mitigation appliances - will help to protect applications, provide security services for clouds and datacenters. These products will be part of Capgemini’s tailored security services for infrastructure, applications and network protection.
Beyond technology integration, the agreement also covers human expertise with the training of 300 Capgemini engineers around the world to Fortinet’s eight-level certification programme.
"Through our close collaboration, we will be able to support Capgemini’s enterprise customers in their global projects, to help protect them against a highly complex threat landscape, and evolve their security posture to a business environment in constant change," said Ken Xie, CEO Fortinet.
