Provider of Road Services Improves Protection and Visibility with New Integrated Security Infrastructure

“The Fortinet approach was the best fit for us, not just because of its strong protection across all the bases – firewall, switches, email protection, web protection etc. – but in the way that the protection all comes together under the Fortinet Security Fabric.”

– Adriano Carvalho, Head of IT, Ascendi


For Ascendi, management of Portugal’s road infrastructure requires processing of multiple inputs and the interconnection of over 50,000 telematics devices. The Ascendi network also delivers a wide range of web applications and services. Protecting all the parts that make up the critical data network underpinning the business posed challenges because the new solution would need to be broader and more all-encompassing. Networking, security and data privacy needed to be an inherent part of each component, not an afterthought. Because of the Fortinet Security Fabric cybersecurity platform, Ascendi was able to select from a range of solutions to create a secure infrastructure with centralized visibility, control, and management.

Learn how Ascendi uses Fortinet technology for seamless protection of their entire infrastructure today and how it will be able to intelligently adapt to the needs of tomorrow in this case study.
