As organizations adopt SD-WAN for faster and more cost-effective connectivity, security remains their top challenge, according to a recent Gartner report.

To address this, Fortinet revealed new innovations to deploy security-driven networking, including the SoC4 SD-WAN ASIC that boasts the industry’s fastest application identification and steering for more than 5,000 applications; FortiGate 100F Appliance that promises 10 times faster performance; new SD-WAN features within FortiOS 6.2 that allow customers to leverage new WAN Link remediation to handle even the most volatile WAN connections and deliver superior application performance for unified communication; and the Fortinet 360 Protection Service that offer SD-WAN management and orchestration to simplify even the most complex deployments.

To further simplify WAN Edge operations, Fortinet continues to expand deeper integration between SD-WAN and the branch access layer. Fortinet’s new SoC4 SD-WAN ASIC accelerates security extension throughout WAN Edge, access points and switches to enable SD-Branch transformation.

“The WAN edge is now a part of digital attack surfaces, but the edge of your network must never be a bottleneck. For branch offices, the ability to provide best-of-breed WAN Edge -- including SD-WAN, WAN optimization, security and orchestration -- with optimal performance and security is critical to enable the digital experience. Fortinet’s SoC4 SD-WAN ASIC allows organizations to realize security-driven networking whether they have 100 or 10,000 branch offices," said John Maddison, EVP of product and solutions, Fortinet.
