Enterprises embracing Multi-Cloud strategies want a more consistent network and security infrastructure across these clouds while optimizing costs to align with budget. By leveraging an application aware network with integrated security businesses can improve application experience for users, strengthen security and compliance while reducing operational overheads.
Press Release: Fortinet “Secure SD-WAN for Multi-Cloud” solution enables enterprises achieve better business outcomes with a secure and intelligent cloud-to-cloud network.
Challenges with current Multi-Cloud deployments
Managing and securing an assortment of different cloud platforms remains a challenge. Few IT teams have the expertise to manage a mixed deployment of multiple public cloud, private cloud, and on-premises environments—especially considering the ongoing lack of skilled IT and cybersecurity talent.
To address the diversity challenge, many organizations choose to connect their clouds via their on-premises data center WAN edge for centralized inspection and routing. But the use of this type of traditional WAN infrastructure approach, though secure, inhibits agility and results in deployment complexity, inconsistent network performance, and expensive connectivity.
Fortinet Secure SD-WAN for Multi-Cloud Solution
Fortinet Secure SD-WAN for Multi-Cloud is a new approach to establishing secure and high-performance connectivity between IaaS workloads running on multiple clouds—without increasing cost and complexity.
This solution enables SD-WAN between clouds and empowers enterprise IT to build a seamless cloud-to-cloud network and security architecture. Fortinet Secure SD-WAN, named a Leader in Gartner's 2020 Magic Quadrant report, delivers the following capabilities:
- Automates the deployment of a seamless overlay network across different cloud networks, reducing complexity and increasing agility to save teams time and resources.
- Offers visibility, control, and centralized management that unifies functionality across multiple cloud environments through Fortinet Security Fabric SDN connectors and cloud-native integrations.
- Securely transports cloud traffic between clouds without needing to backhaul through the data center, enabling better scaling of deployments and reducing latency.
- Intelligently selects connections based on cloud application and workload awareness, improving performance and reducing dependence on costly leased lines or MPLS connections.
