TierPoint Awarded Fortinet 2012 VIP Partner of the Year for North America

TierPoint, the premier carrier-class and carrier-neutral Data Center services provider in the Inland Northwest, received the Fortinet 2012 VIP Partner of the Year for North America award on November 8th at the Fortinet Global Partner Conference in Key West, FL. The awards recognized the outstanding achievements drawn from the Fortinet’s distributors and resellers around the world. This year's conference attendance was Fortinet's largest, encompassing more than 1,000 distributors and platinum, silver and gold resellers from 70 countries.

TierPoint is a Fortinet Platinum Partner and has established a growing presence in the education, retail, medical, and enterprise markets as a leader in managed security services, in addition to traditional data center and cloud services.

“The Fortinet relationship began in 2005 and has grown into an important part of our business strategy,” stated Scott Fuhriman, VP of Sales and Product Development. “In fact, we leverage the Fortinet solutions and our expertise to also include robust IT security protection as a key component of our cloud services. This award is a testament to the hard work that our teams have put into selling and supporting our customers with Fortinet products,” added Fuhriman.

“As attacks against corporate data resources become increasingly pervasive, TierPoint has risen to the occasion, becoming a clear line of defense in securing their customers,” said Kendra Krause, Vice President, Channel Sales and Operations for Fortinet, “These awards recognize the partners that stand as a model to Fortinet’s overall channel base. And we congratulate TierPoint for its achievement.”

TierPoint currently employs five Fortinet Certified Network Security Professionals (FCNSP), Fortinet’s highest level of certification, who are available 24/7 to support TierPoint’s installed managed security services customer base.
