Fortinet® (NASDAQ: FTNT), a global leader in broad, integrated and automated cybersecurity solutions, today announced Nippon Telegraph and Telephone West Corporation (“NTT West”) has selected Fortinet’s Secure SD-WAN and SD-Branch solutions as the foundation of its "FLET’S SDx" subscription service. This service, which enables centralized management of both WAN and LAN — providing complete branch consolidation with simple management — comes with built-in security features enabled by Fortinet’s FortiGate Next-Generation Firewall (NGFW) to provide customers with a flexible, secure network environment that adapts rapidly to change.
With an increasing number of business-critical applications and services in multiple cloud environments and IoT device adoption growing, distributed organizations with remote offices seek to reduce network complexity while improving security and performance.

This security-driven networking approach enables organizations to scale their network infrastructures without compromising security, which provides effective protection for today’s dynamic environments. Fortinet Secure SD-Branch further extends the benefits of Secure SD-WAN to distributed branch offices and provides consolidated branch services for network edge and device edge protection. As part of the Fortinet Security Fabric, these solutions also receive real-time application and threat intelligence updates to protect against zero-day threats.
Together with Fortinet, NTT is able to provide the following key benefits to their customers:
