The National Exhibition Centre (NEC) has deployed Fortinet’s FortiGate security system to protect its network.
The Birmingham-based event venue is using the FortiGate system to provide flexible and comprehensive security protection for e-mail, P2P traffic and HTTP-based applications required by its evolving exhibitor local area network (Lan).
Michael George, NEC communications infrastructure manager, said a deepening concern about the increasing threat from sophisticated worms, viruses and other malicious attacks on exhibitor data traffic, led the venue to install the system.
“The unique nature of the NEC infrastructure, regularly entailing more than 2,500 changes a month, called for a highly flexible and easily configurable solution with high performance and broad anti-threat capabilities," he said.
“Since installing the system we’ve been very pleased with how much easier it makes both management and end-user configuration.”
