Fortinet, leader in broad, integrated and automated cybersecurity solutions, announced continued customer momentum of Fortinet Secure SD-WAN and the official completion of the roll-out of Fortinet’s SD-WAN ASIC-based FortiGate Next-Generation Firewalls with the FortiGate 200F series. Enterprise customer deployments of Fortinet Secure SD-WAN average a 70 percent return on investment (ROI) in three years and 100 percent ROI in five years. Fortinet attributes this to its ability to consolidate SD-WAN, advanced routing, a wireless controller, and in many cases built-in LTE connectivity, on Fortinet’s industry-leading next-generation firewall built around a common operating system and centralized management and orchestration system.
