Supermarket Chain Secures Business in the Cloud

“All the architecture is integrated with high availability. Nothing accesses the cloud without first being verified by the Fortinet solution. This gives me true peace of mind. Whenever there is any attempt at an intrusion, it blocks it perfectly.”

– Julio Pires, IT Manager, Grupo R Carvalho


When the Carvalho Group supermarket chain diversified its business, the associated IT restructuring involved the migration of 48 database servers to Oracle Cloud, creating a new hybrid cloud network. Seeking reliable, high-performance protection for its heavily used network, the retailer selected Fortinet for its ability to extend security seamlessly from the data center to the cloud and for the single pane-of-glass management. Implemented by Fortinet Partner IT Protect, the Fortinet solution included FortiGate-VM virtual next-generation firewall (NGFW) appliances in the cloud and FortiGate enterprise NGFWs in the corporate data center.
