Software-defined wide-area networking (SD-WAN) is rapidly replacing traditional WAN for remote office and branch deployments. While SD-WAN offers performance benefits that support new digital innovations, many SD-WAN solutions lack consolidated networking and security features. In response, many network leaders have had to add a complex assortment of tools and solutions to manage and protect their SD-WAN deployments. Instead, they need a simplified approach to contain costs, improve efficiency, and reduce risks. FortiGate Secure SD-WAN addresses each of these requirements, combining next-generation firewalls (NGFWs) with integrated solutions for management and analytics to centralize and simplify SD-WAN operations.
