Adam Thomas, a senior security and systems engineer with more than 20 years of experience in the tech field, has joined Fortinet as a senior systems engineer.

Thomas will be covering the state of California as well as Nevada business and some named higher-ed accounts. He has a long history in security in both the public and private sectors, and his previous experience includes having spent 12 years with Dell as an enterprise systems engineer and, most recently, as the director of sales engineering for the Western US. 

Thomas started in the IT industry in 1996, when he turned his side interest and hobby into a career change by joining a local reseller in Monterey, and over the next few years worked his way into the security sales and engineering space. He has continued to focus on this area due to the need for improved security awareness and solutions across both the public and private sectors.
