Founder, Chairman of the Board, and Chief Executive Officer (CEO)
경험이 풍부하고 많은 성공을 거둔 기업가인 Ken Xie는 스탠포드 대학에서 수학하는 도중 1993년 SIS에서 소프트웨어 방화벽을 설계하며 네트워크 보안 기업에 첫 발을 내딛었습니다. 1996년에 그는 PC/서버에서 실행되는 소프트웨어 방화벽의 성능 제한 사항을 실감하고 Netscreen을 시작했습니다. As founder, president, and CEO, he led the company to develop the industry's first ASIC and dedicated hardware systems for high-performance firewalls and VPNs. NetScreen(나스닥: NSCN)은 다음에 인수되었습니다. Juniper(NASDAQ: JNPR)에서 40억 달러에 인수했습니다.
In 2000, after recognizing that firewalls and VPNs alone could not stop content and application network attacks such as viruses, intrusions, spam, and malicious web content, Ken founded Fortinet. Fortinet first pioneered the concept of Unified Threat Management (UTM), which unified these functions into single, highly functional appliances. With the rise of IoT, cloud, and mobility, Fortinet is now leading the way in evolving to the next generation of cybersecurity with its holistic Security Fabric vision and portfolio of solutions, which secure the entire attack service from IoT to the cloud and from user to data. Fortinet completed its IPO (NASDAQ: FTNT) in 2009, which was lauded by Renaissance Capital as "IPO of the Year."
Ken은 Stanford University에서 전자 공학 석사 학위를 그리고 Tsinghua University 대학에서 전자 공학 학사 및 석사 학위를 취득했습니다. He is a member of the National Academy of Engineering and a state-registered Professional Engineer. He also represents Fortinet as a member of the Board of Directors of the Cyber Threat Alliance.
