Fortinet, a global leader in cybersecurity solutions, has announced it is teaming up with Equinix, a global interconnection and data centre company, to accelerate cloud connectivity with the addition of Fortinet Secure SD-WAN on Equinix’s Network Edge.
Enterprise organisations are increasingly turning to SD-WAN to improve user experience, reduce costs and optimise connectivity to multiple cloud platforms from branch and campus locations.
Today over 21,000 customers have chosen Fortinet Secure SD-WAN, many of them choosing to deploy directly from the branch to accelerate their cloud adoption and improve application and user experience for business applications.
For enterprises that are adopting a cloud-first strategy – moving their workloads exclusively to the cloud – or a hybrid multi-cloud strategy – using multiple public clouds at the same time for faster connectivity from WAN edges – Fortinet Secure SD-WAN is available as a virtual network service via Network Edge on Platform Equinix.
John Maddison, EVP of products and CMO, Fortinet, said: “The majority of our customers use multiple cloud providers, so it’s really important for them to be able to choose where they deploy services. Collaborating with Equinix and offering Fortinet Secure SD-WAN via Network Edge gives our customers additional deployment flexibility, allowing them the option to host services outside of their branch location and accelerate their cloud journey.”
