Aramid Firewall powered by ICN

ICN's healthcare, government, education, and public safety customers experienced cutting-edge security demonstrations and face-to-face interaction when the “Fast and Secure Tour” rolled into Des Moines on May 4.

The hands-on customer tour was coordinated by ICN’s new public-private partner LightEdge. The “Fast and Secure Tour” is a nationwide tour that mobilizes network security and takes to the road with Fortinet’s FortiExpress semi. The FortiExpress is a highly sophisticated, articulated 18-wheeled mobile showcase that brings Fortinet’s Network Security Platform to life.

"ICN, LightEdge, and Fortinet were able to help show our customers the future of integrated security to help create a custom fabric for each individual end user,” said Micheal Lauer, ICN Telecom Sales Engineer. The environment included multiple touch screen monitors, access to live firewalls and other dashboard products, which drove the conversations and knowledge to fit each customer's need.

ICN’s customers received a security overview highlighting emerging security challenges, and offering security equipment suggestions. The “Fast and Secure Tour” provided a new way to demonstrate the latest in network security, including next-generation firewalls, advanced threat protection appliances, web application firewalls, and intrusion prevention solutions.

LightEdge is a key partner for ICN’s new dynamic firewall service (AramidFW).  ICN’s AramidFW is an advanced-feature firewall service that incorporates Fortinet into the service offering.
