Fortinet expands Global Secure SD-WAN presence


MSSPs continue to invest in Fortinet Secure SD-WAN for its ability to converge networking and security to build services that help solve their customers’ biggest digital transformation challenges

Fortinet has announced that five more managed security service providers (MSSP) have adopted Fortinet Secure SD-WAN to help drive better business outcomes and experiences for their customers. B.Online, Cirion, ngena, PT&T, and Telefónica have joined the growing list of service providers utilizing Fortinet Secure SD-WAN as the foundation for new and differentiated connectivity services without compromising on security. Enterprises also benefit from a faster return on their investment and the ability to deploy solutions more quickly with the help of their MSSP.

John Maddison, EVP of Products and CMO, Fortinet said, “Fortinet has the unique ability to deliver industry-leading SD-WAN, SASE, Universal ZTNA, SD-Branch and many other solutions built on a common operating system. This allows our global MSSP partners to easily grow their business and deliver new services. We’re proud to support our partners and their customers with flexible solutions to tackle their biggest digital acceleration challenges.”

MSSPs continue to rely on Fortinet Secure SD-WAN to deliver flexible, on-demand access to business-critical applications, whether they’re deployed in the cloud, the data center, or on-premises. Fortinet Secure SD-WAN offers the flexibility to seamlessly expand to Secure Access Service Edge (SASE), Zero Trust Network Access (ZTNA), SD-Branch, and more, and can be used as the foundation of new services today and into the future. When enterprises have remote users that need to connect to local applications located in a data center (on premises or public cloud), the recently launched Secure Private Access integration with Fortinet Secure SD-WAN can be used as well to protect their existing investments.

Fortinet Secure SD-WAN also integrates with third-party cloud-delivered security capabilities, such as Secure Web Gateway (SWG), ZTNA, Cloud Access Security Broker (CASB), and Firewall-as-a-Service (FWaaS) that are available from an MSSP. By integrating these solutions, MSSPs can set up a powerful multi-vendor SASE offering that extends the same connectivity and security advantages to remote workers that employees have when they are in a traditional office.

Fortinet continues to invest heavily in its Secure SD-WAN solution and that effort is widely recognized by customers and third parties. To support our service provider partners, Fortinet has a strong history of working with MEF to establish industry standards for SD-WAN, SASE and ZTNA. These standards are leveraged by service providers to help customers make informed decisions about the products they purchase.

“From the beginning, our vision was to develop a service offering that not only provided the value of traditional SD-WAN but would be flexible enough to blend SD-WAN and cloud-delivered security to deliver SASE offerings to our customers. By adding a recognized SD-WAN leader like Fortinet to our portfolio, B.Online was able to achieve this goal. Not only have we seen an increase in our sales growth for network services since adding Secure SD-WAN to our services, but Fortinet’s reputation across the industry and stellar performance has further increased customer trust in B.Online globally,” shared Ayman Abu Jalalah, Directory of Technology, B.Online KW.
