PTC’s software enables customers to design and build highly sophisticated equipment and helps integrate legacy machinery into modern networks. Any kind of security lapse could bring one of its manufacturing customers to its knees. Therefore, maintaining the trust of its customers is paramount. On top of this, the company battled with a network that lacked performance and could not support business growth as more and more workloads were moving to the cloud. PTC needed a network that met both security and performance requirements.
PTC selected FortiGate Secure SD-WAN to help minimize latency throughout the security infrastructure. Fortinet’s high performance also led PTC to replace its legacy firewalls with FortiGate Next-Generation Firewalls (NGFWs). Testing proved that the NGFWs offered better security protection. With the integrated solutions in place, PTC benefits from increased security confidence and a smooth user experience. To scale security, the company benefits from the centralized, single-pane-of-glass management afforded by the Fabric Management Center. This all leads to better productivity for the company.
