BMW Formula E Team Races Toward Innovation, Thanks to Fortinet Security-Driven Networking

“The FortiGate firewall provides the high-performance connection we need between the racetrack and headquarters, while also addressing all aspects of BMW’s security policy. This connectivity is a driver of our success in Formula E.”

– Stefan Frost, Head of IT, BMW Motorsport


As any BMW i Andretti Motorsport competitor will tell you, winning a race is not just about the quality of the car and the skills of the driver. A full 50% of the victory hinges on the analysis of real-time performance data. BMW Motorsport relies on FortiGate next-generation firewalls (NGFWs) to shunt that data securely between the team’s ops room and the track, while complying with all the security policies of the parent company, BMW Group. This security-driven networking approach has proven itself again and again, delivering 100% uptime and minimal latency.

Learn how BMW I Andretti Motorsport travels with its winning Fortinet setup from Monaco to Morocco, and from China to Chile in this case study.
