Project Description

Blue Connections has been named Fortinet’s Australian Regional Partner of the Year, which is awarded to partners in regional areas who do great work in a particular market. Blue Connections has shown excellent progress and results on numerous levels, primarily in Victoria, during 2020.

The Fortinet Australian partner awards recognise the achievements of partners that have helped customers accelerate the move beyond traditional networks securely. The awards are judged on factors including year-on-year revenue growth, investment in training and marketing, and success in leading customer engagements with Fortinet.

Fortinet was excited to celebrate the value of the contributions made by its entire partner ecosystem in 2020. Due to their hard work, Fortinet saw record quarters as customers mobilised to meet changing workplace challenges. In 2021, Fortinet plans to extend its significant investment in training nationally, maintain investment in existing partners, and help partners continue to add value for their customers. With new products in the pipeline and a strong team in place, Fortinet is well-positioned to support its partners for further growth in 2021 and beyond.

Blue Connections and Fortinet have had a longstanding partnership spanning more than 12 years. Our security practice has grown over this period from humble beginnings to being one of our key pillars, alongside our networking, infrastructure, Microsoft/cloud and product divisions. Along this journey, we have invested heavily in our staff and have carefully selected the right vendors to help us achieve this growth.

Blue Connections has achieved strong growth by leading its customer engagements with Fortinet and demonstrating strong partner program compliance. The Blue Connections and Fortinet teams have really enjoyed working together and winning new business during 2020. We look forward to accelerating this even more in 2021.”
