WAN Optimization

Maximize Your WAN Performance

With network traffic growing exponentially, application performance and cost of internet traffic are two of the biggest IT challenges that organizations face. Until now, network managers and administrators lacked a comprehensive solution for monitoring and securing network resources and bandwidth while meeting user expectations for fast and secure application response.

Intelligent Bandwidth Management

WAN optimization reduces bandwidth usage between data centers and clients devices by applying advanced compression algorithm, data caching and other techniques to reduce the transmission of data. This results in more effective use of bandwidth, better application performance and reduces the high costs of WAN links between data centers.

Testimonials


Most manufacturers were able to offer two out of our three desired security functions but Fortinet was the only vendor with the capability to provide all three in a single security solution, while meeting our high expectations in terms of performance and cost effectiveness. On top of providing first-class security, the flexibility of the FortiGate systems allows our security solution to evolve on a per-region basis, as and when required. Moving forward, Fortinet's integrated approach means that other security functions such as SSL VPN, firewall and traffic shaping can be switched as per a country's individual requirements. As a fast-growing acquisitive company, this made for a very compelling proposition.
