"We looked around for nearly 6 months in the SD-WAN world, carefully searching for the right vendor, product, and support. After we spent many, many days of review, we decided to use FortiGate as our solution. This works especially nice when you are already in the FortiGate land, as we were. We primarily chose FortiGate as this would integrate with a lot of our existing infrastructure, especially security. IT also included the more advanced features we wanted like FEC (forward error correction)."

"SD Wan came to simplify infrastructure analyst life. When you think that before we have to balance links manually and choose which one would be responsible for some application. Another benefit is not depend anymore only from dedicated internet links which cost high and without SD Wan we can't perform best with them. When we talk about application, SD wan can give us the best performance with the rule that you think is the bet one for your application(Latency, jitter). The best one is QOS rules witch real works and bring the best performance when we talk about application that are high priority for example Conference rooms used only by executives(CEO, CIO, CFO)."
– Infrastructure Analyst, Large Education/Government
“The human team is excellent, they have experience and a good predisposition to problem solving. We started with a solution in company with a supplier, and little by little we got to know the brand and the solutions they gave us. Definitely, we have found robust solutions, in aspects such as communications resilience, management services and security automation. We hope in the following years to be able to continue evaluating the solutions that are most convenient for our company.”
– IT Manager, Large Finacial Industry
"We tried to implement sdwan features to speed up new branches release and try to cut link costs. After a scouting between vendors we found very close differences between products. At the end we decided Fortinet because of the have fortigate already installed in branches, sdwan is well integrated in the appliance at no additional cost. We found a good support from the vendor and the best ratio for price, performace, scalability and features."
– Network Engineer Large Financial Industry
"It's possible to start using fortigate products really simple, we had quick-wins deploying SD-WAN. We created WAN uplinks with 3 VLAN's where our providers are connected, created a simple rule and we have been able to use the created SD-WAN interface. Policies etc. could be added simple, to manage priority, bandwith by rules."
– Systems Engineering, Manufacturing
"Overall the SDWAN implementation how worked well keeping our sites up, the one thing I have had an issue with is when a circuit fails over the VIPs we have setup stop working. That could be a lack of knowledge thing on my end."
