Case Studies

The beauty of Fortinet solutions is that they talk to one another. Their tight integration is a home run for us. The FortiGate Next-Generation Firewalls send information to the FortiSwitch switches, and then the switches can pick the appropriate VLAN from there. No other vendor offers this type of connectivity.”

With Fortinet, I was able to go from a team of five people just managing all this different infrastructure, to one person and a help desk. The resulting cost savings could easily be in the hundreds of thousands to millions of dollars over the two-or-three-year period that we are currently engaged in. And we are expanding, so those savings will continue to grow.”

Several stores—including our highest-performing store—had some level of primary circuit failure during a period when the company typically generates more than a quarter of its annual revenue. With the Fortinet Secure SD-WAN solution in place, those stores stayed online. In fact, they were not even aware of the outage.”
