Finco Technologies Ltd., a long-standing, well-established IT solutions provider and system integrator in Sri Lanka, clinched two coveted awards for ‘Solution of the Year–Overall Products’ and ‘Principal Recognition - Arista Data Centre Switches’ at the EGUARDIAN Partner Conference held at Jetwing Blue in Negombo recently. 

The Finco products which came under focus in awarding the ‘Solution of the Year’ accolade were FortiGate and Arista data centre switches.

FortiGate next generation firewalls use purpose-built security processors and threat intelligence security services from FortiGuard labs to deliver top-rated protection and high performance, including encrypted traffic. FortiGate reduces complexity with automated visibility into applications, users and network and provides security ratings to adopt security best practices. 

Arista Networks designs multi-layer network switches to deliver software-defined networking (SDN) solutions for large data centre, cloud computing, high-performance computing and high-frequency trading environments.

Arista’s products include an array of 10/25/40/50/100 Gigabit Ethernet low-latency cut-through switches, including the 7124SX, which remains the fastest switch using SFP+ optics through September 2012, with its sub-500ns latency, as well as the 7500 series, Arista’s award-winning modular 10G/40G/100Gbit/s switch. 

At the core of Arista’s platform is the Extensible Operating System (EOS), a ground-breaking network operating system with single-image consistency across hardware platforms, and modern core architecture enabling in-service upgrades and application extensibility. In terms of the award criteria, Arista’s platform executed the most comprehensive integrative solution of the year, using multiple products with emphasis on the criticality of the projects involved and availability of experienced and certified engineers.
