Fortinet is teaming with Equinix to accelerate cloud connectivity with the addition of Fortinet Secure SD-WAN on Equinix’s Network Edge.
As quoted in the press release:
Enterprise organizations are increasingly turning to SD-WAN to improve user experience, reduce costs and optimize 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 now available as a virtual network service via Network Edge on Platform Equinix.
