Mexican University Converges Network and Security Infrastructure With the Fortinet Security Fabric

“Having all components integrated with Fortinet allows us to achieve better overall results. We have greater visibility, while we can centralize administration and quickly respond to incidents.”

– Uciel Fragoso Rodríguez, Director of Technological and Information Services, Instituto Tecnológico Autónomo de México (ITAM)


For one of the most recognized educational institutions in Mexico, ITAM, security is paramount. That is because evolving academic demands have required ITAM to focus on data protection, and IT security is now a strategic priority. The university also has several international exchange partnerships. However, years of a sprawling infrastructure paired with many point products led to network performance issues and a lack of visibility into its network activity.

To address this and the security gaps that came with it, the university started by deploying FortiGate Next-Generation Firewalls and enabling SD-WAN to securely connect campus locations on the network with high-performance connectivity. Further, it implemented FortiMail and FortiWeb solutions to protect against email-borne threats and protect critical web services. With the Fortinet Security Fabric approach, ITAM has broad network visibility and is more agile responding to security and networking needs.
