Federal government extends cyber defence partnership with Fortinet and VanRoey

Turnhout, 15 April 2024 - VanRoey, a leader in the IT sector, may provide cybersecurity solutions to Belgian government institutions for the next four years, as it did in 2015 and 2019. The ICT company with offices in Turnhout, Geel and Houthalen, was again selected by Smals vzw in recognition of a high-quality offering at competitive terms.

Smals chooses Fortinet and VanRoey again

Smals, an association of more than 300 public institutions, assists public authorities in their quest for first-in-class ICT solutions. To offer this to its members with economies of scale and through reliable partners, Smals works out framework agreements for them. The government contract specifically concerning network security again goes to Fortinet's products and services, offered by VanRoey.

This new agreement underlines the successful long-term relationship between Smals and VanRoey while using Fortinet’s technology. A collaboration aimed at strengthening digital security in the Belgian government. The fact that Smals has again chosen VanRoey confirms the company's leading role in the protection of local and federal government institutions.

Fortinet provides network security solutions worldwide and has become the market leader in Unified Threat Management (UTM) thanks to its 'Security Fabric' ecosystem. Also in BeluxFortinet Platinum Partner and Partner of Excellence Fortinet has been the best-selling cybersecurity brand for many years. This is partly thanks to the FortiGate, a particularly reliable and high-performance next-generation firewall.

Patrick Van Roey General Manager Pat Van Roey is therefore particularly proud: "In recent years, we have been able to demonstrate our expertise to various government departments through Smals. We therefore see the renewed cooperation as an acknowledgement of the work done."

The renewed partnership was ceremoniously kicked off in Brussels on Thursday 13 June 2024. The event provided Smals members with essential information and networking opportunities.
