About Me

Hey Guys,

This is where I give you some insight about myself. I’m Mike!

I am a 30 year old father, husband, brother, son etc. I love what I do for a living and hope to be able to do it for many more years to come.

I work on Fortinet devices all day every day. I was originally pulled to Fortinet devices back in 2010 when I began working for a smaller IT firm that was locally based. They didn’t have a lot of Fortinet experience and the hardware that they were using at the client’s offices sucked (nicest way I can think to put it). I fixed that quickly. I am the Director of Cybersecurity for the entire state that I work at currently. I love Fortinet appliances because of the lower TCO and robust capabilities.

I am one of the few that gets sent in to resolve Fortinet related issues when other resellers mess up. I am the cleaning crew. You would be amazed at how little most Fortinet Value Added Resellers (VARs) know when it comes to the hardware capabilities and configuration. I am happy that they exist though as it keeps me employed!

This site is meant to be educational and at the same time entertaining. The Fortinet GURU is a character. If you speak to me in person you will see that I am a very down to earth guy that is easy to talk to. I talk slow and with a strong southern drawl (I live in Alabama for crying out loud) , but I’m smarter than I let on. 🙂 If you need legit help with your Fortinet hardware and want some consulting to be performed then please give me a shout. I am professional in person and will get you fixed right up!
