Largest Technical College in Peru Uses Secure SD-WAN to Connect 83 Locations

“Our cross-team processes can be highly complex, but the integrated [FortiManager] management system makes them simpler. This capability, along with the high throughput enabled by FortiGate Secure SD-WAN, is critical for SENATI.”

– Willy Zamudio Núñez, Information Technology (IT) Manager, SENATI


The largest technical college in Peru, SENATI, spans 83 locations across 24 states to serve nearly 90,000 students in technical and industrial fields. Due to the wide geographical span of campuses, SENATI’s IT department needed a secure, efficient solution to connect distributed campuses, meet the performance demands of students and faculty, and ensure operations run smoothly.

SENATI tested and then deployed FortiGate Secure SD-WAN for its next-generation firewall plus SD-WAN capabilities both rolled into one unified solution. This allowed SENATI to achieve the security plus performance it needed without adding costly, complicated bolt-on products. To further simplify, SENATI implemented FortiManager to centralize management of the entire network with a single pane of glass.
