CEC Bank

Premier Romanian Bank Achieves 50% Reduction in Application Response Times With FortiGate Secure SD-WAN

“Within just six months the entire Fortinet roll-out of FortiGate Secure SD-WAN was complete, providing fast, reliable connectivity to our full range of applications and services for almost 1,000 branches.”

– Eduard Bîsceanu, Director, Information Security and Administration, CEC Bank


With almost 1,000 branches, CEC Bank is one of the most well-known and fastest growing banks in Romania. The bank’s latest growth goals are driven by digital innovation, such as the adoption of cloud services, but its legacy network was too slow and unreliable to support an increased traffic load. It needed a more flexible, automated approach to managing and scaling the network infrastructure to meet its evolving needs. For this, the bank turned to Fortinet and its FortiGate Secure SD-WAN solution. While enhancing security, the solution maximized available connectivity and reduced application response times. To streamline network deployment and simplify ongoing management, analysis, and reporting, CEC Bank deployed the Fabric Management Center, allowing the bank to monitor and control the entire network and security infrastructure from a central location.
