Cybercriminals often try to leverage any newsworthy event to their benefit. Consider the case of the COVID-19 pandemic. Lately, there has been a sharp rise in the number of registered domains on the internet with terms related to COVID-19. And while some of those are legitimate websites, many are created by foul players to carry out spam campaigns or spread malware. Such cybersecurity threats are now making organisations realise the growing complexity and diversifying paradigm of cyberthreats more than ever. So, quite evidently, it is driving companies across every sector to shore up their cyber defences. The crucial need of the hour is a powerful cybersecurity solution that can effectively prevent and neutralise a wide array of cyberthreats.

Interestingly, many organisations are now turning toward Fortinet’s cybersecurity solutions to stay abreast of the current cyberthreat landscape. In doing so, they are realising that they can reap the most benefit from Fortinet’s solution in a short time if they collaborate with experienced Fortinet partners.

Enter Switchshop.

A Fortinet Expert Partner, Switchshop draws on its knowledge of IT networking, security, and VoIP telephony solutions and the expansive partner ecosystem to offer a “defence-in-depth” network security model. Such extensive capabilities unarguably make Switchshop a one-stop-shop for enterprise-grade security systems that can deflect a myriad of cyberthreats. “Together with Fortinet, we deliver end-to-end services from the design, supply, and installation of high-end and complex cybersecurity solutions, to all the way through project management, aftercare, and ongoing support of those solutions,” underscores Michael Curry, director of Switchshop.

“Technically led, always…”

The use of the Fortinet Security Fabric platform gives Switchshop the ability to integrate innovative technologies like EDR (Endpoint Detection and Response) seamlessly into existing cybersecurity architectures. Alongside Fortinet, Switchshop also partners with others industry leaders in the networking, security, servers, storage, and telephony arena. For instance, Switchshop utilises HPE Aruba’s network access control (NAC) and the database-driven network automation solution AOS-CX to drive innovation. And taking these offerings a notch higher are the deception technologies from Attivo, and secure back-up solutions from HPE and Veeam, for ensuring a well-rounded security meshwork. These resilient and reliable infrastructures give Switchshop’s clients the necessary peace of mind so that they can focus their additional resources on advancing the business operations.

And while offering such a broad portfolio of security solutions, Switchshop also makes sure that its clients don’t have to go through the hassle of regular fixing and tidying the network security systems. Switchshop’s team of experts takes care of it instead; they are always there to help the clients overcome even the tiniest difficulties with utmost efficiency. “Our professional services team is one of the most experienced and qualified in the country, and our services are driven by their expertise, not by a sales agenda,” states Curry.

Such illustrated capabilities, in addition to its end-to-end cybersecurity services, put Switchshop in a relatively small subset of companies in the UK that can tick every box for defence-in-depth skillsets. Notably, 2020 marks the 20th anniversary of Switchshop’s glorious run so far. Moving ahead with these proven and robust capabilities, Switchshop is now poised to expand its horizon and take on new products that will aid its clients further. “We know where our strengths lie, and bolstering that is important for maintaining the high standards of services that we are known for,” concludes Curry.
