When the COVID-19 pandemic hit Iceland, leading IT services provider Origo saw overwhelming demand for secure remote access. As teleworking grew from around 20 users a day to over 1,000, the increased traffic taxed the company’s legacy VPN solution. At the time, Origo had been evaluating the FortiGate next-generation firewall (NGFW) for use as a VPN headend. But the urgency of the pandemic forced more rapid action. Origo opted to deploy FortiClient advanced endpoint protection on all its remote endpoints, trusting in the high-performance FortiGate NGFW at the headend to keep traffic flowing and secure. Within eight days, 70% of employees had FortiClient up and running, with little or no assistance from the IT team. Employee satisfaction and productivity skyrocketed.
