Southern Institute of Technology Finds All-In-One Solution

“We deployed Fortinet around seven years ago, initially just as primary firewalls. We then gradually expanded our use of Fortinet offerings throughout all our five campuses to the point in which they now protect our whole network.”

Nick Elder, Chief Information Officer, Southern Institute of Technology


The Southern Institute of Technology (SIT) in New Zealand is a 14,000-student tertiary education provider with campuses in Invercargill, Queenstown, Christchurch, Gore and Auckland, as well as a large distance learning faculty.

Fortinet has given Southern Institute of Technology the flexibility to take on new campuses while connecting to their network using Fortinet’s VPN functionality. They have also used FortiManager, a great management console that has allowed them to manage their entire Fortinet environment.
