White Family Dealerships

Auto Dealer Converges Security and Networking With Fortinet SD-WAN and SD-Branch

“MPLS is expensive. By replacing the MPLS infrastructure with SD-WAN, we’re saving around $120,000 a year.”

– Shane Williams, Director of IT, White Family Dealerships

 

U.S. car dealerships face stiff fines from the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) if they fail to take all reasonable measures to prevent data breaches. To effectively and cost-efficiently protect its sprawling automotive retail network, it made sense for White Family Dealerships to consolidate its networking and security functions. Working with Fortinet, White Family Dealerships’ IT team has integrated security into numerous connected assets—including endpoints, software-defined wide area network (SD-WAN) edges, and applications. And it monitors and manages them all from a single location.

Learn how White Family Dealerships is saving hundreds of thousands of dollars while improving its security posture in this case study.
