Choosing the Right SD-WAN Solution is Critical for Partners
While some organizations have attempted to address this challenge on their own – redesigning their network infrastructure with solutions such as SD-WAN and SASE – this is not possible for a growing number of businesses. The complexity of deploying, managing, and securing critical resources across an increasingly distributed and dynamic organization is driving customers to seek out service providers to support new networking projects. In fact, almost 80% of IT infrastructure leaders in a recent survey indicated managing all of the elements of an SD-WAN solution is far too time-consuming and difficult.

But this trend also creates security-related needs that can negatively, even severely, affect experience, performance, and scale if not properly addressed, and can lead to attacks, disruptions, and long-term damage to brand and reputation.
Public Agencies Look to Fortinet's Fabric Management Center to Simplify Operations and Ensure Compliance
State and local governments and educational (SLED) institutions face many of the same security challenges as other organizations, but often with less man power and budget, and more regulations that must be closely followed. For example, a local government may have a small seven-person team maintaining and managing network security and access to critical resources for thousands of users across an entire county. Or a public college in a hurricane-prone region must ensure business continuity for 11 campuses with limited resources.
Fortinet Ranks Highest in Two Key Use Cases in 2020 Gartner Critical Capabilities for WAN Edge Infrastructure Report
Gartner’s well-known annual Magic Quadrant reports recognizes vendors in a variety of key technical markets based on key factors, like their ability to execute and the completeness of their vision. However, there are additional Gartner reports that may provide further insight for those organizations looking to select and deploy a solution that best suits their specific use case. Gartner’s “Critical Capabilities” reports use proprietary methodologies to score organizations in critical subcategories within each Magic Quadrant area based on more granular criteria. These reports extend the value of the more general Magic Quadrant recognitions by providing deeper insight into providers’ product and service offerings for key market segments.

Ensure Best User Experience With Self-Healing SD-WAN
SD-WAN solutions have become increasingly popular as organizations demand fast, scalable, and flexible connectivity to and between different network environments. The objective of any SD-WAN deployment is to establish and maintain a high user experience while lowering the overall total cost of ownership (TCO) for connections between remote offices and users and business-critical resources and applications. But as with most technologies, the wrong SD-WAN solution can significantly inhibit an organization’s ability to quickly adapt to changing business demands, rather than accelerate them. And the most significant challenge is that the wrong SD-WAN solution can introduce serious security challenges that can bring the entire system to a screeching halt.
