TierPoint, the Liberty Lake-based data center and hosting service originally launched by tech guru Bernard Daines, got a little recognition this month.
It was named the Fortinet 2012 VIP Partner of the Year for North America.
A press release noted the award is for outstanding achievement and is awarded annually to some of Fortinet’s more than 1,000 distributors and resellers around the world.
TierPoint, which was acquired in May by Cequel Data Centers, is a Fortinet Platinum Partner and has established a growing presence in the education, retail, medical, and enterprise markets as a leader in managed security services, in addition to traditional data center and cloud services.
In short, that means Fortinet is used by TierPoint to help its data hosted companies be protected from security break-ins and cyber attacks.
