Kennards Hire Improves Customer Experience with Secure SD-WAN

“Fortinet’s customer service has been great & their technology is rock solid. It really gives us options around how we create our network of the future."

– Martin McManus, General Manager of IT, Kennards Hire


Kennards Hire is the largest family-owned supplier of high quality hire equipment. As they have been operating for over 70 years across Australia and New Zealand with 1500 employees and 3 data centers globally, it is imperative to stay ahead of the curve with technology and security.

The company prides itself on customer service so it is paramount that their technology is best in the industry. System down times and interruptions were two of the main issues faced which effected customer experiences before choosing Fortinet. After deploying Fortinet Secure SD-WAN to their 180 branches in only 8 weeks, they reduced failover times from two to three minutes to a couple of seconds, enabling branches to run seamlessly.
