Fortinet has been named a 2020 Gartner Peer Insights Customers’ Choice for WAN Edge Infrastructure for its Secure SD-WAN solutions. The Gartner Peer Insights Customers' Choice distinction is based on feedback and ratings from end-user professionals who have experience purchasing, implementing or using Fortinet Secure SD-WAN.
Fortinet established the concept of Secure SD-WAN with the introduction of integrated SD-WAN functionality into its FortiGate Next-generation Firewalls in 2016. Since then, Fortinet’s security-driven networking approach to SD-WAN has enhanced user experience while reducing costs and complexity for organizations of all sizes and verticals worldwide. Fortinet currently has over 21,000 SD-WAN customers globally.
Secure SD-WAN also in Gartner Magic Quadrant for WAN Edge Infrastructure
Fortinet’s Secure SD-WAN solution was also recognized by Gartner in the latest Magic Quadrant for WAN Edge Infrastructure, which named Fortinet a Challenger with the highest ability to execute and furthest completeness of vision in the Challengers quadrant.* Additionally, Fortinet received the highest score for the “Security-Sensitive WAN” use case in the November 2019 Gartner analyst research report, “Critical Capabilities for WAN Edge Infrastructure.”
With 263 total verified ratings as of March 24, 2020 – the most reviews of all vendors – Fortinet customers have provided honest reviews, which Fortinet believes is an indication of its commitment to delivering best-of-breed SD-WAN solutions. Fortinet believes its ability to offer the broadest set of enterprise-grade use cases, such as NGFW, segmentation, IPS, and SD-WAN using a network firewall, has contributed to this distinction.
