Leading Canadian Home Improvement Retailer Extends Fortinet Secure SD-WAN Across 1,100+ Network Edges
SUNNYVALE, Calif., Jan. 18, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) --
Martin DeVries, Manager, Network & Telecommunications, Infrastructure & Security, Home Hardware Stores Limited
Over the past few decades, Home Hardware has grown dramatically to around 1,100 Dealer-owned stores as well as multiple data centers and cloud environments. Locations with multiple legacy point products for network and security procured over the years made centralized management challenging and provided sub-optimal visibility and control of day-to-day operations. With critical payment applications and other SaaS applications including Office365 accessed from the cloud, securing their over 1,100 network edges, data, and applications was a top priority for Home Hardware.
After an extensive evaluation process that included multiple vendor solutions, Fortinet Secure SD-WAN emerged as the right choice for Home Hardware to tackle these challenges. By tapping into the power of Fortinet Secure SD-WAN, Home Hardware is taking a security-driven networking approach to their digital transformation efforts to realize the following benefits:
Fortinet Secure SD-WAN is a part of the Fortinet Security Fabric, the industry’s highest performing cybersecurity mesh platform designed to span the extended network while providing consistent security and performance across all edges. By choosing Fortinet, Home Hardware will be able to further their digital transformation efforts in the future to the LAN edge through Fortinet Secure SD-Branch to achieve single pane of glass management and visibility of the entire WAN edge, LAN edge and cloud.
“We have worked with Fortinet for over two years now, and as a result of our strong, collaborative relationship, we have enabled the deployment and rollout of secure SD-Branch. We have been able to enhance our cybersecurity posture, realize significant cost savings, and prepare to simplify our network across 1,100 stores and protect our technology stack for the future.”
