Polish Telecom selects Fortinet for new managed security services

Fortinet, a network security provider, announced that Telekomunikacja Polska
(Polish Telecom) has selected Fortinet’s FortiGate multi-threat network
security appliances.

Polish Telecom decided to market customer premise equipment (CPE)-based managed
security services to help businesses increase their protection against Internet
threats. The provider also wanted to give businesses the opportunity to benefit
from its management support, eliminating the need for in-house IT security
resources to install, manage and maintain the deployed security solution.

Polish Telecom selected Fortinet‘s FortiGate integrated security
platform for the robust and broad suite of security functions it delivers on a
single device and the strong support level provided by Fortinet. The Fortinet
solution also is designed to ensure high service availability, the best
quality/price ratio and ease of management.

“With our new ‘Managed UTM’ services, we help our customers secure their
networks security and give them peace of mind,” said Izabela Bialek,
director – Data Transmission Services and Integration, TP Group Business
Segment Marketing at Telekomunikacja Polska.

Polish Telecom managed security services use a number of different FortiGate
appliance models and delegate them based on the size of a customer’s
deployment. Each FortiGate includes the following key security functions:
antivirus, firewall, intrusion prevention (IPS) and Web filtering.

Polish Telecom offers two Managed UTM services options. In the basic model option, the
FortiGate appliances are managed by the customers themselves, with Polish
Telecom providing maintenance and servicing. Installation and configuration of
the device in that case may be offered by Polish Telecom for an additional fee.

In the advanced model option, Polish Telecom manages the entire security deployment,
from consulting, installation and configuration to 24/7/365 management,
maintenance, replacement and remote monitoring of Fortinet’s appliances. In
addition, Polish Telecom also manages device configuration backup and recovery.

“By selecting Fortinet, Polish Telecom further demonstrates the value our
FortiGate devices offer in terms of security, price/performance and ease of
management,” said Patrice Perche, senior vice president of International
Sales & Support at Fortinet.
