Fortinet broke ground on its forthcoming new home in Sunnyvale, CA where it is expanding its corporate headquarters building. This new facility, located at the corner of Kifer Road and Commercial Street in Sunnyvale, California will be a roughly 172,000 square foot state-of-the-art building with a LEED Gold Energy Efficiency Rating. Fortinet has over 6,000 global employees dedicated to the company’s mission to deliver the most innovative, highest-performing security fabric to secure and simplify IT infrastructures. Fortinet is a leading global provider of network security appliances for carriers, data centers, enterprises and distributed offices. This month’s breaking ground is a momentous new milestone for the company and its employees to continue that mission.

The new building is set to include advanced technologies, like a precast concrete structural system with a highly efficient passive cooling system. It also will have a “night purge” that flushes the warm air from the building providing direct energy savings and significantly reduces the building’s overall carbon footprint. “Fortinet is tremendously proud to have called Sunnyvale home for almost 20 years. When we started Fortinet, we set out to build the most innovative, highest performing network security company in the industry. Today we are among the top three cybersecurity companies in the world,” says Ken Xie, Founder, Chairman of the Board and CEO.
