Independent testing and new customers and use cases show the value of best-of-breed security and best-of-breed SD-WAN in a single integrated offering
Fortinet has announced recent customer, partner and market momentum, as well as independent testing results, of its FortiGate Secure SD-WAN solution.
“In today’s threat landscape, security can never be an afterthought in any network deployment,” said Rajesh Maurya, Regional Vice President, India & SAARC at Fortinet.
“Fortinet’s focused innovations and evolution of best-of-breed SD-WAN with in-built next-generation firewall provides the advanced threat protection necessary for direct internet connectivity. Our philosophy of tightly integrating security and SD-WAN functionality together minimizes management complexity, ensures a safer deployment and helps reduce costs. It’s clearly resonating with customers and we’re seeing rapid adoption of FortiGate Secure SD-WAN.”
Fortinet’s FortiGate Secure SD-WAN solution delivers the functionality provided by pure-play SD-WAN vendors with advanced security built into one single offering. It’s backed by independent testing to deliver excellent quality of experience for voice and video, high VPN throughput and best price/performance. At Fortinet, SD-WAN functionality has been organically developed in-house and is a feature of every FortiGate Next-Generation Firewall. Purpose-built security processors and threat intelligence from FortiGuard Labs further ensure that security is an integral part of Fortinet’s SD-WAN solution.
“KPR wanted to reduce WAN cost by using an SD-WAN solution, however most solutions out there are expensive and do not provide the NGFW security capabilities we require. We chose Fortinet’s FortiGate Secure SD-WAN over competitors because it provides us with what we feel is the best SD-WAN solution that also provides superior security features in one simple offering. Not only did we significantly lower the WAN cost, Fortinet helped us reduce complexity and provided us with the visibility and prioritization of critical applications we required,” said Dan Fitzgerald, Chief Information Officer at Kawartha Pine Ridge District School Board.
