Renewables Company Accelerates New Site Deployments by Consolidating on the Fortinet Security FabricDownload Case Study
Part of the U.K.-based RES Group, RES Americas develops, constructs, and operates renewable energy projects across the U.S. and Canada. At every project site, the company must set up a new network, complete with secure Wi-Fi local-area network (LAN) and cellular wide-area network (WAN) connectivity. To make this process fast and reliable, RES Americas has developed a network-in-a-box kit, based on FortiGate Next-Generation Firewalls. Centrally managed through the Fortinet Security Fabric and bolstered by FortiGuard AI-powered Security Services, the network-in-a box takes just 30 minutes to deploy onsite.
“I have long thought it makes more sense to have an integrated stack where different components work seamlessly together, creating a proactive and automated security posture, and it is great to see this approach reflected in Fortinet’s Security Fabric.”
– JP DiCicco, IT Manager Infrastructure Operations, RES Americas
Fortinet’s product line, software, and support—combined with SkyHelm’s skills, knowledge, expertise, and services—provide us with a great security benefit ensuring critical electric infrastructure is protected, monitored, and maintained in an efficient and cost-effective manner.”
