“We wanted to develop a process through which security would be an integral part of every IT project—rather than an add-on or afterthought.”
Sébastien Griet, Infrastructure Director, HR Path
Until recently, global human resources technology company HR Path connected its far-flung branch offices with a traditional WAN using MPLS circuits. These circuits were especially expensive in some countries in which the company had a small office. At the same time, the company’s need for bandwidth was growing—both through the growth of the company and its adoption of more cloud-based services. As a result, the company sought to replace its traditional WAN with a software-defined WAN (SD-WAN).
After extensive testing, HR Path selected a proposal from Fortinet Partner Aciernet for a Fortinet Secure SD-WAN solution. The Secure SD-WAN solution enables network traffic to travel over the public internet securely, and is enabling the company to retire all of its MPLS circuits. Upon full deployment, this will save tens of thousands of dollars annually per site in infrastructure costs while enhancing security and improving efficiency.
