Secure and High-Performance SD-Branch Enables Pizza Restaurants to Rise Despite the Global Pandemic

“Thanks to the security-driven networking in Fortinet Secure SD-WAN, Monical’s Pizza can maintain PCI compliance faster and more efficiently.”

– Douglas Davis, Information Systems Coordinator, Monical Pizza Corporation


When you don’t know what to have for dinner, pizza is a pretty safe bet. And paying for it should be just as safe. So, when Illinois-based Monical’s Pizza upgraded its network to 10G fiber, it wanted security baked in. As part of a complete SD-Branch solution that protects the company’s LAN and WAN edges, Monical’s is leveraging Fortinet Secure SD-WAN, as well as Fortinet secure switching and wireless access solutions. The integrated infrastructure enables the company’s 3-person IT team to capably manage a 32-store point-of-sale (POS) network, as well as secure Wi-Fi and VPN access, across 4 states.

Learn how Monical’s security-driven networking approach enables Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) compliance and supports business growth—even in a pandemic-constrained market—in this case study.
