Sandy Alexander, a commercial printing and visual merchandising company headquartered in New Jersey, needed to improve visibility of its remote workers, particularly in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic. It set out to replace and consolidate its legacy systems with a more secure alternative that would allow it to continue to enjoy the ease of management that comes with its Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) applications.

Sandy Alexander selected FortiSASE, the Fortinet secure access service edge (SASE) system, which it integrated with FortiGate Next-Generation Firewalls (NGFWs), Fortinet Secure SD-WAN (software-defined wide area networking), FortiClient endpoint protection, and other Fortinet solutions. The company also deployed the FortiWeb Cloud web application firewall (WAF)-as-a-Service for protecting public-facing web-based applications, and FortiGuard Security Operations Center (SOC)-as-a-Service to ensure that outside experts are monitoring its security environment around the clock. As a result, the company has increased visibility of remote workers, improved connectivity for employees, and enhanced its overall security posture.

“Having one vendor that consolidates networking and security in a single product set is very beneficial, and Fortinet is a visionary in that regard. Fortinet saw where everything was headed and is now at the forefront of the technology. It is great to work with Fortinet and be at the forefront as well.”

We needed more protection for our students because we're really good at protecting them on-premises with the UTM on the firewalls. But we needed that functionality to move with them wherever they went anywhere, anytime. We moved to SASE because it was an evolution for was moving away from the concept of, ‘we teach in the school,’ to allowing them to learn from anywhere in the world.”
