How a Biotech Company Keeps Employees Safe When Working From Home

“We are very satisfied with the Fortinet solution. All the components are doing what they are supposed to do, and we are better able to mitigate threats on a day-to-day basis.”

– Chris Fire, Senior Manager, Service & Solution Network Data, QIAGEN


International biotech company QIAGEN focuses on testing solutions for diagnostic labs and researchers, as well as genomic services and genome sequencing for academic researchers. Accordingly, its intellectual property is one of its most important assets to secure. Fortinet's security-driven networking approach attracted Qiagen along with the many capabilities of FortiGate Next-Generation Firewalls. With this new solution, QIAGEN business users experience minimal latency across the WAN. FortiManager and FortiAnalyzer help streamline management and standardize edge security throughout the global network from a central location. And amid a change to a more distributed workforce, Qiagen seamlessly manages and controls remote access and endpoint security with FortiClient.

Learn how QIAGEN streamlined security and management of its global network and effectively prepared for the future in this case study.
