The WAN is in the midst of a remodel. For the foreseeable future, the cloud is driving a phase of digital transformation. Serving to connect organizations with critical applications, promise the performance of said applications and deliver on the demands of the cloud era.

InfoVista (News - Alert) and Fortinet unveiled a partnership pairing the InfoVista Ipanema dynamic application QoS Virtual Network Function (VNF) with the Fortiner Fortigate VNF. The integration offers the enterprise an application aware and secure SD-WAN solution in a single form factor.

The two vendors started officially working together earlier this year when InfoVista became a member of Fortinet’s (News - Alert) Technical Alliance Partner (TAP) program. Each organizations offers a crucial piece to creating a complete SD-WAN solution.

“This partnership between InfoVista and Fortinet represents two best-in-class partners coming together to deliver the most secure and application-aware SD-WAN offering in the market,” noted Sylvain Quartier, SVP Product Strategy Enterprise at InfoVista. “We are already seeing tremendous interest in this combined solution from our mutual customer base and we look forward to supporting the secure SD-WAN transformation ambitions of the market on the whole.”

SD-WAN is taking on numerous forms, and this announced release elevates WAN performance in a single solution. InfoVista adds enhanced control and visibility, while Fortinet provides the means to proactively protect the WAN.
