Fortinet®, a global leader in broad, integrated and automated cybersecurity solutions, has announced the integration of Fortinet Secure SD-WAN with Amdocs’ extensible orchestration solution to empower service providers to deliver managed SD-WAN and security services across customer premises, data centres and the cloud, while reducing deployment and operational costs.
Service providers requires significant investment in time and resources to deliver scalable commercial SD-WAN and security services. These services that are based on the solution and partners’ ecosystem may require complex integration and testing that will result in a long time to market and high costs. The pre-integrated solution from Fortinet and Amdocs, in this very competitive and fast evolving service offering market for SD-WAN and security, significantly reduces the time and effort required for the solution’s onboarding within a service provider’s environment – therefore providing accelerated time to market, reduced costs and improved return on investment.
The Amdocs service lifecycle management and orchestration solution enables service providers to rapidly define, launch, fulfill and operate Fortinet Secure SD-WAN’s full range of next-generation firewall security services embedded with native and scalable SD-WAN capabilities. With the proper automation and orchestration layer on top of SD-WAN, this combined solution can provide critical service agility and ability to quickly and efficiently scale to a large number of customers and sites. Fortinet’s carrier-grade Secure SD-WAN solution can be deployed on customer premises, in data centres and in the public cloud, which allows service providers the scalability to offer new revenue-generating services to enterprises of any size, small or large. Thanks to the Physical and Virtual Network Functions (PNF and VNF) of Fortinet’s industry leading Secure SD-WAN solution, those services included are managed SD-WAN services, advanced security services and SD-Branch services.
Also, service providers are uniquely positioned to evolve their SD-WAN services, with the PNFs and VNFs, to provide revenue generating managed services from headquarters, branches and data centres through the WAN and into the public cloud.
“Partnering with Fortinet allows us to further enable service providers to deliver differentiated managed secure SD-WAN services while improving time to market. Multi-site, mid-market and enterprise customers represent a growth opportunity for CSPs. Our pre-integrated service lifecycle management and orchestration capabilities including SD-WAN, application-aware routing and best-of-breed next-generation firewall (NGFW), simplify and accelerate the creation of service offerings for this growing market.”
