Headquartered in Fort Worth, Texas, Hydradyne operates across more than 30 branches in the United States and is one of the largest motion control distribution companies in the country. After struggling with a variety of point products and services for threat prevention, the company turned to Fortinet to secure its enterprise systems from cyberattack. Hydradyne uses FortiGate Next-Generation Firewalls deployed at all of its branches, headquarters, and public cloud environment. Hydradyne leverages FortiManager to centrally configure its FortiGate devices and FortiAnalyzer to troubleshoot system issues. FortiMail secures its email system from malicious emails. The company also deployed the FortiEDR solution for its endpoint detection and response (EDR) requirements. Hydradyne uses FortiClient to ensure patch management across devices and to enable secure remote access via virtual private network (VPN) or Zero Trust Network Access (ZTNA) for employees. Central to the overall solution is Fortinet’s managed detection and response (MDR) service, FortiMDR. For its part, Hydradyne benefits from the expertise of Fortinet’s team to help it analyze data from its systems to identify and shut down threats before they become a problem.
