NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- After cyber attacks on Twitter, the New York Times and AOL's (AOL) Huffington Post, how do you play defense?

TheStreet's Jim Cramer told Debra Borchardt his choice is Fortinet ( FTNT), a company that tries to prevent such attacks from happening to companies using its service.

Hewlett-Packard ( HPQ) CEO Meg Whitman and Cisco ( CSCO) CEO John Chambers have both said customers want security on their Internet network and hardware to protect against cyber attacks, Cramer noted.

Acquisitions have continued to depopulate the playing field in the Internet protection sector. Cramer noted HP's acquisition of ArcSight, and suggested Fortinet could be bought by a bigger company at some point.

While orders have been "lumpy," Cramer concluded investors should go with Fortinet if they want exposure to this industry.
