Leading Global Provider of Packaging Solutions Enhances Operational Efficiency Through Secure SD-WAN Architecture

“We already had good experience with FortGate Next-Generation Firewalls from one of the companies we have recently acquired, so when we realized they also had some of the most advanced SD-WAN capabilities integrated into the very same platform, it seemed an obvious choice.”

– Simone Castellucci, Manager for End User Services, Sidel


For Sidel, a global provider of packaging solutions with 50 locations worldwide, it needed to simplify and improve connectivity between branches and address technology vendor sprawl. It lacked a single view of its network, hampering its ability to solve networking, connectivity, and security problems, which may have gone unnoticed. In addition, Sidel faced complexity securing on-premises applications and an increasing number of cloud-based services.

The best solution to the company’s connectivity challenges, especially given the increasing use of cloud services, was to transition to a secure software-defined wide-area network (SD-WAN) architecture, enabled through FortiGate Next Generation Firewalls (NGFWs). By increasing the security, performance, and reliability of the company’s WAN, the new SD-WAN architecture has enabled Sidel to increase the levels of service and business value delivered to its customers and partners while simultaneously reducing connectivity and administration costs.
