Enterprises embracing Multi-Cloud strategies want a more consistent network and security infrastructure across these clouds while optimizing costs to align with budget. By leveraging an application aware network with integrated security businesses can improve application experience for users, strengthen security and compliance while reducing operational overheads.

Press Release: Fortinet “Secure SD-WAN for Multi-Cloud” solution enables enterprises achieve better business outcomes with a secure and intelligent cloud-to-cloud network.

Market for Multi-Cloud

Enterprises today have almost entirely embraced multi-cloud for its flexibility—93% currently have a multi-cloud strategy in place (reference: Kim Weins, “Cloud Computing Trends: 2020 State of the Cloud Report,” Flexera, May 21, 2020)

Most organizations today work with multiple cloud providers for a host of benefits, including disaster recovery, global coverage, avoiding vendor lock-in, and leveraging best-of-breed solutions. 

While each provider offers an assortment of compute, storage, and networking services, an effective solution for unified networking and security in a Multi-Cloud infrastructure is not available today.

Challenges with current Multi-Cloud deployments

Managing and securing an assortment of different cloud platforms remains a challenge. Few IT teams have the expertise to manage a mixed deployment of multiple public cloud, private cloud, and on-premises environments—especially considering the ongoing lack of skilled IT and cybersecurity talent.

To address the diversity challenge, many organizations choose to connect their clouds via their on-premises data center WAN edge for centralized inspection and routing. But the use of this type of traditional WAN infrastructure approach, though secure, inhibits agility and results in deployment complexity, inconsistent network performance, and expensive connectivity.

What to look for in a Secure Solution for Multi-Cloud deployments?
