Ingram: Your Fortinet Premier Authorised Training Centre

13 Apr 2015

Knowledge is power. Especially in selling network security solutions. New threats appear by the minute, more mobile devices highlight network vulnerabilities and today’s datacenters require faster throughput. No other market moves as fast as security.

How to keep up? Ingram Micro’s Fortinet sales and technical training, that’s how!

The Benefits:

  • Increased sales:  Your customers demand the very latest in network security solutions. With highly-trained staff, your team can sell the right solution for the right application with confidence.
  • Increased customer satisfaction: Trained staff specify, install and configure Fortinet equipment correctly the first time. On-the-job training is simply not an option. You owe it to your customers to provide qualified, professional services. There is no margin for error.
