Qatari multinational telecommunications company Ooredoo Group has selected US-based cybersecurity company Fortinet to improve its Enterprise EDGE portfolio based on the Fortinet Secure SD-WAN.
Enterprise EDGE is Ooredoo’s managed SD-WAN service that allows enterprise customers to mix and match services from a wide range of WAN connections to create a customised network. Having transformed its network to be SD-WAN ready, Ooredoo now offers a new capability unrivalled by traditional connectivity services, according to Fortinet.
The collaboration with Fortinet means Ooredoo now has access to a security-driven networking approach that consolidates SD-WAN functionality and next-generation firewall security in a single offering.
Fortinet Secure SD-WAN is designed to improve user experience and simplify operations at the WAN edge. For Ooredoo customers, this means access to a secure SD-WAN solution that integrates next-generation firewall with advanced SD-WAN networking functionality to effectively protect customers’ data and applications along with a high level of visibility, reporting, control and scalability.
The solution can be blended with any standard connectivity services such as national IPVPN, business internet, business broadband or mobile broadband, adding value to conventional connectivity services by providing enhanced SD-WAN networking features.
These include application-aware traffic steering, dynamic path selection with service-level agreement (SLA) measurements, and self-healing capabilities.
