Windstream Enterprise has offered SD-WAN from VMware since 2017. The addition of Fortinet’s SD-WAN technology to the Windstream portfolio gives customers more choices and offers highly-secure, cloud-ready and rich networking capabilities combined with a next-generation firewall offering—regardless of connection type or carrier.
Fortinet’s SD-WAN capabilities, made available on the same device as their leading Next-Gen Firewall (NGFW) edge device with UTM, deliver a powerful alternative for businesses looking to simplify their networking and security. Consolidating these network functions adds efficiency and lowers overhead, increasing the solution’s appeal.
Windstream Enterprise’s SD-WAN solution is fully-managed and —regardless of the platform option selected — may be paired with Cloud Connect, for highly-secure, private and high-performance connections to cloud-based applications. The WE Connect digital experience, offered through a portal as well as on mobile devices via the WE Connect portal app, extends the operator experience to mobile devices, enabling agile and efficient SD-WAN management.
