Organizations require constant upgrades in their systems which is why digital transformation (DX) is a vital step into modernization. The speed of the WAN system isn’t the only thing that bothers users, but security is the top concern of most users who decide to undergo digital transformation. During digital transformation, SD-WAN can be a huge security concern if proper steps aren’t taken. Fortinet pairs next-generation firewalls (NGFWs) with SD-WAN. NGFW addresses the SD-WAN challenges which are lack of visibility, the complexity of the system, and the lack of security.
The three use cases discussed in the white paper for transforming branches with Fortinet secure SD-WAN are; digital transformation of enterprise branches, reduction of WAN OPEX spending with high application performance, and simplification with “SD-BRANCH”
