Forrester Now Tech:
All-in-One Zero Trust
Edge Solutions, Q4 2021


Fortinet Recognized Among Large Vendors

Forrester’s new Zero Trust Edge architecture combines networking and security to provide an integrated secure access solution for today’s hybrid workforce. It starts on-premises with software-defined wide area network (SD-WAN) and firewall solutions to provide secure on-premises access. It then includes Secure Web Gateways (SWGs) and a Cloud Access Security Broker (CASB) to provide similar controls in the cloud. And ZTNA is deployed both on-premises and in the cloud to push explicit per user, per application zero-trust access everywhere. 

We believe that Fortinet’s Security-Driven Networking approach provides a comprehensive and fully integrated strategy for implementing an enterprise-wide Zero Trust Edge architecture:

  1. Fortinet Secure SD-WAN provides a foundational on-premises edge for secure network connectivity.
  2. FortiGate NGFWs, Secure Web Gateway, and CASB solutions enable the convergence of networking and security, extending secure access to both on-premises and remote users.
  3. Fortinet’s ZTNA solution can be deployed everywhere, on-premises, in the cloud, and as an end-user proxy to provide explicit per user per application access based on identity and context.
