Fortinet Secure SD-WAN

Improve user experience and simplify operations with secure connectivity to cloud-based applications.

What is SD-WAN?

More than ever, today’s businesses rely on cloud applications. As companies move workloads to the cloud, MPLS no longer meets today’s demands – modern architectures require high performance and secure, reliable connectivity to the cloud from all locations. 

Software-Defined Wide-Area-Networks (SD-WAN) are an increasingly popular and cost-effective alternative to dedicated network connections and MPLS infrastructures. SD-WAN enhances an organisation’s capabilities by using the corporate WAN, as well as multi-cloud connectivity to deliver high-speed application performance at the WAN Edge of branch sites. 

SD-WAN solutions can transform your organisation’s capabilities, however they don’t include in-built security. Only secure SD-WAN allows organisations to enable NGFW with SD-WAN in a simplified offering.

Why Fortinet SD-WAN? 

Unlike SD-WAN solutions that only provide connectivity – requiring a separate security solution – Fortinet Secure SD-WAN leverages its industry-leading FortiGate Next Generation Firewall to deliver integrated, best-of-breed SD-WAN capabilities.
