Hilfswerk Niederösterreich

“We needed a solution that would guarantee continued data security throughout the network modernization process, while enabling us to simultaneously replace the old firewalls protecting our branch offices. Fortinet was the obvious choice for us because of its Security-Driven Networking approach and ability to extend SD-WAN to the access layer via SD-Branch.”

– Stefan Schuster, IT Manager, Hilfswerk Niederösterreich
