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!
