PORT OF SPAIN, Trinidad -- Fortinet, a global leader in high-performance network security, has announced its most important local engineering event of the year, the Xtreme Team Engineering 2013, to take place in Port of Spain, Trinidad, from October 29 to 30.
The Xtreme Team is an extreme forum for commercial and technical training, designed for pre-sales, sales and technical support engineers, where attendees are able to learn about the world’s most significant security trends, their impact in the Caribbean region, and Fortinet’s business and technology vision.
“The Xtreme Team has become the most important engineering event in Latin America because we discuss vision and security trends, and we also train and provide select customers and partners with tools to develop custom made solutions for each of their clients,” said Gilbert Perez, Fortinet’s Caribbean country manager. “Our business is based on technological excellence, advisory talent, and closeness to our customers; the reason why we host this event, delivering the content and necessary conditions to enable our customers and main partners in the region.”
The two-day agenda for the event focuses on Fortinet’s technological security vision and the relevance of research and development throughout FortiLabs. Fortinet experts will present the latest regarding FortiGate operating system versions, Forti0S 5, and even some of the Advanced Technologies division’s products.
“Fortinet considers it vital to maintain a broad relationship with our partners, which is why we conduct this effort that allows us to not only train our partners, but re-enforce our position by growing as a team and broadening subject matter knowledge,” said Hans Fermin, Fortinet’s territory manager. “Throughout these days, we will lead different workshops and exercises that will allow those attending the event to handle very sophisticated equipment, which ultimately generate the adequate space to share experiences about solutions and best practices.”
With these types of events, Fortinet recognizes its customers’ and partners’ efforts and commitment in the country, while also strengthening its solid relationship with them.
