Digital Transformation (DX) of the traditional branch networks offer several advantages to the distributed companies. Many organizations are moving from WAN networks, with all their performance limitations, to software-defined WAN (SD-WAN) architectures, which offer faster connectivity, cost savings and other benefits.
However, SD-WANs also present challenges. Fortinet's FortiGate Next-Generation Firewall (NGFW) firewalls include Secure SD-WAN capabilities , which bring together network and security management in one solution . Application visibility and control, high-quality voice and video distribution, and unified network and branch office security, as well as advanced threat protection are supported.
