Why SASE Requires a Foundation Built on SD-WAN
As enterprise organizations embrace cloud and WAN Edge transformation, they experience poor and unpredictable SaaS performance, because they lack visibility and control into the middle mile for application traffic flows after exiting the WAN Edge (SD-WAN). The ability to responsibly and effectively offer their network users secure access to workflows depends on the ability to achieve a holistic network-driven security strategy that seamlessly integrates with existing infrastructure.
Leverage SD-WAN and SASE Together
Fortinet enables Cloud on-ramp for SD-WAN and improves the user experience by leveraging self-optimized, purpose-built cloud architecture. It integrates with partners such as Equinix, PacketFabric, and Megaport, enabling direct cloud connectivity for SaaS services to provide better experience to users regardless of their location.
Exceptional application performance for SaaS, with optimized and scalable connectivity across multiple regions, improves productivity and user experience. Infrastructure teams are able to deploy and enforce a consistent security policy across a distributed off-network workforce, wherever users may be.
Fortinet delivers a solution that is highly scalable, easy to use, and more comprehensive than anything else available. We use the Fortinet SASE solution to deliver cloud-native security and scalable VPN access to our remote users and distributed branch offices. Fortinet is critical to our ability to get the job done; without it, we would require a staff of four to five more people as well as capital investment in additional products.
