Fortinet joins Joint Cyber Defense Collaborative

On April 18, Sunnyvale, CA-based Fortinet announced it has become a member of the Joint Cyber Defense Collaborative (JCDC), furthering the company’s commitment to strengthening the United States’ security posture and cybersecurity resilience.

The Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) established JCDC in 2021 to bring together public and private entities with the goal to gather, analyze and share actionable information to more proactively protect and defend against cyber threats. These types of collaborative efforts help build systemic resilience by both coordinating incident response and by addressing vulnerabilities and other cyber risks before they are exploited.

“Fortinet is honored to become a member of JCDC to build on our existing collaboration and trusted relationship with the U.S. government to help improve our nation’s cybersecurity. Fortinet has a long track record of supporting mission-critical public-private partnerships and we look forward to collaborating with JCDC and sharing our expertise in cybersecurity, our broad visibility into threat activity, and the actionable threat intelligence we generate. We applaud the work JCDC has accomplished to forge cross sector collaboration since their founding in 2021 and look forward to helping JCDC mature its capabilities and contribute to building the United States’ cyber resiliency,” said Ken Xie, founder, chairman of the board, and chief executive officer at Fortinet.

Fortinet will work with JCDC to leverage the company’s more than 20 years of cybersecurity leadership and expertise, including actionable threat research from FortiGuard Labs, Fortinet’s elite threat intelligence and research organization established in 2005. FortiGuard Labs continuously monitors the worldwide attack surface using mature artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) technology to neutralize events and issue actionable updates.

Fortinet will share this timely and actionable threat intelligence and cyber best practices with the JCDC community to prevent risks and mitigate the greatest cyber threats and vulnerabilities faced by the United States and its international partners. This collaboration further expands Fortinet’s long-standing commitment to cross-industry and cross-sector partnerships with organizations such as Interpol and the World Economic Forum’s Centre for Cybersecurity to help combat today’s most pressing cyber challenges and to disrupt cybercrime.
