Oxford Properties Increases Visibility and Control Through the Fortinet Security FabricDownload Case Study
Oxford Properties Group (“Oxford”) is a global real estate investor, asset manager, and business builder headquartered in Toronto, Canada. In supporting its properties, it needed to ensure there was a repeatable, scalable process in place to efficiently right-size security based on the risk profile of each individual site and minimize the need to impede the day-to-day operations on the ground.
To do this, Oxford set out to develop a network infrastructure centered on the Fortinet Security Fabric that could be centrally managed to reduce operating costs and enable swift response to the growing number of external threats. A number of Fortinet solutions integrate into the central management platform enabling Oxford's team to manage multiple operational technology (OT) networks. Oxford benefits from better network visibility into configurations and devices, reduced administrative burden, and lower TCO.
"Our goal is to help our customers manage business risk and enhance value. Fortinet has played a key part in modernizing our OT network infrastructure and security posture.”

Zero-touch provisioning and remote management of FortiGate NGFWs reduces the administrative burden
New levels of network intelligence to quickly identify configuration issues within vendors' systems with regard to network access
Streamlined planning of new sites and network refreshes by being able to offer a reference architecture to drive decision making
Fortinet’s wireless LAN solution fits our requirements best, as it was able to provide a strong, stable signal strength, despite our hotel’s concrete buildings. The design of the external antennas definitely suited a hotel environment.”
