Brazilian Cooperative in Agribusiness, Livestock, and Retail Modernizes Its Network Infrastructure With Fortinet LAN Edge and Secure SD-WAN

“With Fortinet Secure SD-WAN, we can now control everything from one place, and it has totally simplified our network infrastructure.”

Diego Boelter, Innovation Manager, Cotripal


An exceptional growth phase challenged Brazilian agrobusiness retailer Cotripal Agropecuária Cooperativa (Cotripal) to undergo a modernization of its networking and cybersecurity. The company’s legacy environment could not keep up, often requiring many manual processes. Other challenges it faced included a lack of central management and connectivity issues that hampered business transactions.

Cotripal was impressed by Fortinet’s security reputation. It deployed FortiGate Next-Generation Firewalls (NGFWs), Fortinet wired and wireless LAN edge devices, and enabled Fortinet Secure SD-WAN (software-defined wide-area network) functionality across its 45 branch locations. Fortinet Secure SD-WAN simplifies and makes network connectivity at the branches more reliable. And, FortiAP access points enable users to enjoy fast and secure wireless access. With FortiManager centralized management, Cotripal gains visibility into more than 3,000 devices on its network and control of its Fortinet Security Fabric. FortiAnalyzer adds real-time incident logging and reporting speeding up security decision making.

Read how Cotripal’s consolidation of the entire network infrastructure, security, and its management on a single platform helps the company easily roll out new branches in this case study.
