Brazilian Business Group Optimizes Its Network and Security Infrastructure With the Fortinet Security Fabric

“With Fortinet Secure SD-WAN technology, I’m able to control latency, availability, and load balancing of the network.”

Daividdi Morais, IT Supervisor, Empresas Lael Varella


Empresas Lael Varella, a large Brazilian holding company, was facing challenges around how to unify security and networking management across all its diverse businesses. In addition, it often experienced unreliable internet connectivity.

To combat these challenges, the group implemented a FortiGate Next-Generation Firewall (NGFW) in all its companies enabling centralized management and secure networking for each business. It uses FortiManager to manage its network security in a unified environment and FortiAnalyzer for log management, analysis, and reporting. Fortinet Secure SD-WAN (software-defined wide-area networking) is saving the company 60% on connectivity costs while also automatically managing and optimizing the WAN links depending on network traffic and application prioritization. The result is a Fortinet Security Fabric helping ensure effective security and high availability for users.
