Viya’s first TECH Talk for 2023 was hailed as a success, drawing a sizable audience of technology professionals from across the territory eager to learn about technology solutions that could assist them in improving operational efficiency. 

For the presentation, which took place on March 21 at the Buccaneer Beach and Golf Resort in Christiansted St. Croix, Viya teamed up with Fortinet, a global technology leader which last year according to Viya was voted the best in delivering superior Wide Area Networks for remote workers, small branes, and security-sensitive use cases.

“Partnering with Fortinet was an excellent opportunity to bring valuable industry and global insights and solutions to our customers and the broader USVI community,” said Viya CEO Geraldine Pitt. 

TECH Talk participants discussed elements of Viya’s Business Solutions portfolio, which includes unified communications, connectivity, and mobile and leveraged assets implemented in an increasingly digital world. Fortinet’s cutting-edge security apparatus has also been folded into Viya’s solutions suite, the company said, adding data and privacy protections to the service offering.

Fortinet’s security expertise was also harnessed to facilitate a focus on network security best practices, assessing the current threat landscape, and identifying emerging trends in cybersecurity. Attendees also got a chance to see how the company’s security solutions could be used to protect businesses and organizations from cyber-attacks, with Viya’s support. 

“We are delighted to have partnered with Viya…during this insightful presentation,” said Jose Carlos Vazquez, Fortinet’s Major Account Manager. “We believe that ensuring maximum availability of a customers’ network is essential for any business or organization, and we are committed to sharing our knowledge and expertise with the USVI community.”

Last week’s TECH Talk was the second such hosted by Viya, with a third scheduled for later in the year.
