Case Studies

The company needed a high-performance, scalable solution that could empower the networking operations group to deploy hundreds of teleworking devices concurrently."
- U.S. Multinational Financial Services Institution
Scalability was a big concern for the company, as was the ability to integrate with the team’s chosen automation platform—Red Hat Ansible. Fortinet’s robust representational state transfer (REST) API enabled a deeper and more robust Ansible integration than other solutions that were considered, and FortiGate next-generation firewalls (NGFWs) delivered superior performance and scalability. Additionally, the Fortinet team was very responsive to requests for support and new features. An internal analysis projects $100 million in cost savings and efficiency gains in five years from deployment of FortiGate next-generation firewalls (NGFWs).
