Why Seamless Cloud Connectivity Is Critical for Organizations

cloud connectivity

Digital innovation is the key initiative for many distributed enterprises across all major sectors. Organizations are adopting a cloud-first strategy with 83% of the enterprise workloads estimated to run in the cloud by end of 2020. Yet, as more applications such as Office365 and Salesforce move to the cloud, the traditional approach of backhauling traffic over legacy WANs to the data center has become an obstacle, resulting in a poor cloud application experience.

Cloud Ready Branch

Leveraging Fortinet Secure SD-WAN for cloud on-ramp to SaaS and multi-cloud improves the user experience for business applications. With integrated advance security, the enterprise branch security posture remains strong even with direct internet access to the cloud. Managing edges, cloud and SaaS applications through single-pane-of-glass management reduces the cost and complexity of the branch.
