Falmouth Exeter Plus are looking for a qualified partner to supply 2(two) x FortiGate firewalls (design to be agreed) along with associated professional service time to work on the high- and low-level design and then implement the final agreed solution.
The agreed solution needs to re-use 2(two) existing FortiGate firewalls which are still in support so experience in multi firewall solutions is essential.
Due to the critical information in this solution, we are not supplying our suggested design and current specification in this open forum so would invite bidders to express an interest in this project. Suitable bidders will then be requested to sign under NDA to receive the full tender documentation.
