The leading IT solutions provider selects Fortinet over Palo Alto Networks & Cisco as its cybersecurity provider
Mphasis has selected Fortinet Security Fabric solutions to deliver high-performance, advanced threat protection to its network spanning 8 locations in India and servicing over 22,000 corporate users, it has been announced by Fortinet.
Mphasis was conducting a network infrastructure upgrade and wanted to consolidate primary firewall capabilities across all its datacenters, including client and other indirect business networks. The company also wanted to take this opportunity to modernize and utilize advanced security features to enable business in a more secure and controlled way to drive user-based policies supporting new cloud-hosted application access.
To meet compliance, Mphasis needed to segment and secure every customer’s network with an enterprise firewall. This was cumbersome to configure on Mphasis’ previous security technology. Updating firewall policies for customers with changing requirements, like expansion of applications and workloads in the cloud, was also time consuming on those appliances.
Following a thorough evaluation, Mphasis selected Fortinet over Palo Alto Networks and Cisco as its cybersecurity provider because of its ability to scale solutions, availability of multispeed port density that performs in the gigabit range, and its high availability with a single pane of glass management console.
Mphasis subsequently deployed a range of FortiGate enterprise firewalls to secure its data center and the performance-sensitive application services of customers.
“Following the Fortinet deployment, Mphasis could add firewall services quickly and stop worrying that it could not expand resources fast enough,” said Debashis Singh. “Fortinet’s solution has provided our organization with the performance, flexibility, manageability and operational efficiencies it needed.”
“We collaborated with Mphasis to develop a network architecture that ensured high resiliency, greater bandwidth and excellent threat visibility. Fortinet is pleased that after evaluating competing products, Mphasis concluded that our technology is the one to invest into best meet their customers’ evolving network and cloud security requirements,” said Rajesh Maurya, Regional Vice President, India and SAARC, at Fortinet.
