Fortinet® (NASDAQ: FTNT), the global cybersecurity leader driving the convergence of networking and security, today 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 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.

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.

JCDC combines the visibility, insight, and innovation of the private sector with the capabilities and authorities of the federal cyber ecosystem to collectively drive down cyber risk to the nation at scale.
