AT&T Expands Security Service with Aid from Fortinet

AT&T is expanding its portfolio of managed security services through its alliance with Fortinet to make secure access service edge (SASE) a reality for enterprises.

AT&T SASE with Fortinet is a global managed SASE solution at scale that unifies software-defined wide-area network (SD-WAN) with network security functions of the SASE framework and 24×7 management.

Digital transformation drives the convergence of networking and security as technology teams realize the challenges of managing and protecting increasingly complex networks as well as the connections that support them. In addition, networking and security needs are changing for customers with remote workers accessing the network from myriad locations and devices.

Organizations are looking to a solution based on SASE principles to solve the challenges through point product consolidation, identity-based access and worldwide points of presence to support the distributed workforce. With this consolidated approach, enterprises can help reduce operational costs by moving to a single cloud-delivered solution.

As the largest SD-WAN managed service provider in North America, and one of the world’s largest managed security services providers (MSSPs), AT&T understands what businesses need as they modernize and transform their networks.
