Bradford Networks, an innovator in the enterprise security automation and orchestration market, will join Fortinet at the sold-out Accelerate 18 as a Fortinet Fabric-Ready Partner and gold sponsor. Accelerate 18 brings together Fortinet’s customers, resellers and technology partners for in-depth discussions on how to address the ever-changing needs of cybersecurity professionals. This year’s conference will be held at The Cosmopolitan in Las Vegas, February 26 – March 1, 2018.

During the conference, Frank Andrus, CTO of Bradford Networks, will lead the session, The Power of 3: Visibility, Control, Response, which explores how the explosive growth of IoT and BYOD devices is creating more cyber threats during the current cybersecurity skills shortage. Attendees will learn how companies can overcome these hurdles by combining best of breed network access control (NAC) with Fortinet’s offerings to enable true security automation and orchestration. In addition, the Bradford Networks team will cover how far NAC has evolved to shrink the attack surface and effortlessly handle the rapid proliferation of devices. The speaking session will be on Tuesday, February 27, from 5:10 – 5:30.

“We congratulate Fortinet on another great year and are pleased to be a gold sponsor of Accelerate 18,” stated Andrus. “We are excited to be speaking at the conference and helping users counter the security gaps that IoT, BYOD and other devices are introducing into the network through seamless integration with the Fortinet Security Fabric for a rapid and coordinated response that is critical to defend against today’s threats.”
