According to Fortinet, part of the contract will involve the company enabling “a secure digital environment” at Barcelona’s Camp Nou stadium, using its Security Fabric platform. This includes its FortiGate firewalls to secure stadium Wi-Fi, OT infrastructure and data center.

Going into greater detail, a spokesperson for the company said: “Fortinet’s ‘zero trust’ network access and endpoint security will protect users and devices accessing applications from any location. Additionally, centralised management with AI-powered security analytics will offer comprehensive network visibility.”

The spokesperson continued: “The alliance between the club and Fortinet is part of a sponsorship programme associated with the future Spotify Camp Nou. It has been made possible thanks to shared goals of integrating the most innovative technological systems into the future stadium.

“FC Barcelona is committed to turning Espai Barça into an international innovation hub, at the forefront of new technologies. In this sense, this alliance reaffirms the club's commitment to partnering with leading companies and integrating the most innovative technology into the new stadium.”
