Fortinet
Who: Fortinet is a cybersecurity vendor that offers a range of firewalls, intrusion prevention, and endpoint security technologies to enterprise organizations. The company says it has over 440,000 customers worldwide.
 What: Fortinet has made its entire catalog of 24 online security courses available to everyone for free for the rest of 2020. Previously, the courses -- which cover topics such as public cloud security, secure access, and Secure SD-WAN -- were available for free only to the security vendor's partners. The courses are from Fortinet's self-paced National Security Expert eight-level security certification and training program. The free programs have been broken down into three categories: advanced training for security professionals, technical training for IT professionals, and awareness training for teleworkers.
Why: 'The current reality has forced many organizations to face rapid change and new risks as they've transitioned to remote workforce models,' said Fortigate EVP of products John Maddison in announcing the program. The courses will help organizations address the evolving needs of organizations securing highly distributed and remote workforces, the vendor noted.
