Fortinet, a global leader in cybersecurity solutions, has been named as the first cybersecurity founding partner of the World Economic Forum (WEF) Centre for Cybersecurity.
Both organisations believe the threat of cybersecurity demands a global response. To respond to the threat of cybercriminals WEF has established the Centre for Cybersecurity, a global network of partners from business, government, international organisations, academia, and civil society to collaborate on cybersecurity challenges.
Fortinet’s partnership with the centre is further reinforcement of the company’s longstanding commitment to public and private sector collaboration.
In conjunction with the Centre for Cybersecurity, Fortinet will continue its efforts to collaborate, innovate and develop powerful global solutions to reduce global cyberattacks, contain current and future cyberattacks, and deter cybercrime.
Fortinet’s CEO Ken Xie will serve as a member of the Centre for Cybersecurity Advisory Board.
“We are proud to be the first cybersecurity company named a founding partner of the WEF Centre for Cybersecurity and look forward to collaborating with global leaders from the private and public sectors through our shared commitment to deliver a response to the growing global cybersecurity threat,” said Ken Xie, Founder, Chairman of the Board, and CEO, Fortinet.
“The WEF’s Centre for Cybersecurity is important for global multi-stakeholder collaboration and serving as a founding partner of the centre is yet another step forward in our own mission to secure the largest enterprise, service provider, and government organisations in the world.”
