Smart Fit

The Largest Network of Fitness Centers in Latin America Uses Fortinet Security Fabric to Accelerate Innovation

“The Fortinet Security Fabric rendered great benefits. Standardization is essential for the success of our business model, and segmentation in all branches was crucial to improving our projects.”

 – Valter Sobral, Infrastructure Manager, Smart Fit


Smart Fit is the largest Latin American network of fitness centers, with over 1,000 branches and over 3 million customers in 13 different countries. Mainly located in Brazil, Smart Fit considers investing in technology a key business differentiator. The greatest challenge for Smart Fit is to guarantee the stability of its connectivity at its fitness centers. After all, the company focuses on finding the perfect balance between face-to-face and digital activities, where everything is computerized and controlled remotely. It required standardization, automation, and visibility of its network, which it lacked and struggled with under old technology. It also had challenges around network access and segmentation.

The company knew Fortinet as a recognized security player that could also provide the right networking solutions. It found high performance in the Fortinet Secure SD-WAN solution, delivering a quality customer experience. FortiSwitches help provide segmentation and visibility, while FortiAnalyzer helps proactively diagnose and resolve network issues. FortiManager helps standardize and deliver business-critical company policies, rules, and firmware. It also enjoys automated deployment of IoT devices and connected fitness equipment with FortiDeploy. Ultimately, time and costs spent administering its secure network with Fortinet solutions are much lower than previously.
