In September, Vancord was pleased to host a cybersecurity and networking Axe Throwing event with valued partners, Exclusive Networks and Fortinet at Montana Nights in Orange, CT. Vancord is a proud partner with Exclusive Networks, distributor of our preferred vendor, Fortinet. Attendees were invited to join the Vancord, Exclusive Networks, and Fortinet Teams for an evening of learning how to throw axes, social networking, and enjoying appetizers and beverages.
The evening began with a short introduction from Lou Ardolino, Vice President of Client Success at Vancord, followed by a presentation with Branden Lee, Account Manager of Fortinet. Guests were intrigued by the presentation and asked follow-up questions to engage.
Axe throwing was exhilarating and competitive while guests played games on teams against one another. Conversations around Fortinet’s Next-Gen Firewalls took place along with learning of guests’ pressing cybersecurity concerns.
History of a Solid Partnership
Fortinet and Exclusive Networks have always been the foremost partners of choice for delivering security and securing our customers’ perimeters. Since 2008, pre-merger of Vancord and our parent company, TBNG Consulting, our goals were to implement enterprise-level, best of breed, secure network solutions. Since that time, Fortinet has always been the best choice in Unified Threat Protection. Exclusive Networks (then known as FineTec) has been our go-to distributor for these products.
As we transitioned to Vancord and became a security-first MSSP, making that adaptation was seamless because of the Fortinet implementations from our team. Now, we have over 650 primary Fortinet products out in the wild (this does not include access points)– those of which are 99% managed by Vancord. We have been selling and supporting Fortigates, FortiSwitches and FortiAPs and have been a client of Exclusive Networks since January 2008. They have the most certified techs and engineers of any reseller: NSE 4-5-6-7.
