Power Generation Company Centralizes Network Operation and Increases Availability with Secure SD-WAN
“We cannot allow an operational error or an external attack, because we have people working all the time, 24×7. The implementation of a security solution in our critical infrastructure, such as Fortinet Secure SD-WAN, has become essential.”
– Andrés Koper, Plant Maintenance Manager, Sullair Argentina
Since 1979, Sullair Argentina has focused on the manufacture, distribution, and rental of equipment for the construction, land movement, lighting, and work-at-height industries. The company’s recent foray into power generation services in Argentina and Brazil has led to an increased commitment to network security and availability. To meet both these needs, Sullair turned to Fortinet Secure SD-WAN to provide secure connectivity between its distributed plants and a new operations center.
Not only is the new solution increasing network availability over the Sullair’s wide area links, but it is also optimizing the company’s bandwidth utilization and improving its operational efficiency.
