SD-WAN: Application Aware, Multi-Path WAN Controller with Integrated NGFW Security
- Enables efficient cloud services adoption with direct internet access
- Reduces WAN cost, increases total bandwidth, delivers best application performance
Distributed enterprise branches transitioning to a digital business model are having a significant impact on network WAN. The adoption of cloud services and increasingly mobile work force are accelerating advancements in WAN technologies. With enterprises directly accessing the internet, it’s becoming critical to deploy next-generation security strategies along with enabling multi-path WAN to improve application performance.
Fortinet’s Secure SD-WAN deployment provides next-generation security and advanced networking capabilities to improve WAN efficiency without compromising on security. It links network and security paths across the world through the internet, 3G/4G, or private WAN links, making it a truly borderless infrastructure for the enterprise. Our latest WAN Path Controller helps to reduce WAN cost without impacting service level agreements (SLAs) for business applications. With our new dynamic cloud application list, customers can easily migrate to Software as a Service (SaaS) applications and get the most optimal and secure path.
With centralized management, you can automate device provisioning and maintain universal policy across thousands of devices. It drastically reduces management costs, simplifies configuration, and accelerates deployment cycles with zero-touch deployment single-pane-of-glass administration.
FortiGate SD-WAN includes:
A lightweight replacement of traditional WAN routers, WAN optimization, and security appliance
Application aware solution with more than 3000+ applications supported
Path awareness intelligence to provide granular status on latency, jitter, and packet-loss
