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.

He prefers to use debit trades on momentum setups and credit trades on support/resistance setups. He also focuses on building long-term wealth by searching for consistent, quality dividend paying companies and long-term growth companies. He considers himself the surfer, not the wave, in relation to the market and himself. He has no allegiance to either the bull side or the bear side.
