Fortinet has recently appointed Jason Nadar as the National Sales Manager for Wireless Technologies in India and SAARC. This appointment is a key prong of Fortinet’s strategy to increase its share in the Wireless Appliances market in India, according to a company statement.

Fortinet offers solutions in wireless LAN security by unifying the LAN connectivity and security for both wired and wireless networks.

We are delighted to be able to bring on board a domain expert like Nadar to lead our regional teams in expanding our OEM partnerships with telcos and MSSP partners, enabling enterprises and SMBs easier access to our cutting edge wireless solutions,” said Vishak Raman, Fortinet’s Senior Regional Director for India & SAARC.

With nearly two decades of experience in the industry, Nadar has held various senior positions at Aruba Networks, 3Com, Ingram Micro and Frontier. He has a valuable network of industry contacts and thorough knowledge of sales, channel and support functions in the wireless and security spaces.

According to Nadar, wireless is the most exciting space to be at present and the company’s fastest growing business area. “There’s a clear market trend for a unified security and management approach towards wired and wireless networks, and this represents a tremendous opportunity for us to bring powerful, versatile and cost-effective solutions to enterprises across the region,” he said.
