Banco de Ahorro y Crédito Fondesa (BANFONDESA)

Dominican Republic Bank Achieves High Availability and Security of Its Network

“The implementation of Fortinet’s solutions allowed us to obtain significant cost savings in communications, considering an 11-month forecast for the return on the investment made.”

Junior Méndez, Technology Manager, BANFONDESA


Although enterprise data centers offer a natural hub for branch connectivity, wide-area networking (WAN) costs are challenging this model. In the Dominican Republic, internet service providers actually charge more for data center connections than for distributed, individual branch links. That is one reason BANFONDESA deployed Fortinet Secure software-defined (SD)-WAN at all of its 59 branches. In addition to optimizing the flow of branch-to-WAN traffic, the Fortinet secure networking solution is protecting the bank’s employees, its customers, and their data from cyber threats.

The SD-WAN deployment is part of a comprehensive security and connectivity upgrade for the bank, which features Fortinet solutions ranging from secure LAN Edge and SD-Branch to centralized management and security analytics. Learn how BANFONDESA is reaping the rewards in this case study
