Innovation is offering a silver lining in a time of great strife. Advancements at the edge and enterprise networking overall are enabling the mass migration home, and security is one of the key pieces of the puzzle as organizations evolve to the cloud.

SD-WAN vendor Fortinet (News - Alert) is seeing this play out in real time in the MSSP space, noting its next-gen firewall security, open fabric ecosystem and advanced routing offers managed security service providers a path to better meet modern business need.

John Maddison, EVP of products and CMO at Fortinet explained, “Fortinet’s global partners leverage our innovative Secure SD-WAN solution to take advantage of the new business opportunities presented by the rapidly growing SD-WAN market. Increasingly, MSSPs in particular are delivering new managed services built on Fortinet’s industry-leading Secure SD-WAN solution to meet customers’ evolving business needs.”

Fortinet’s security-driven networking approach is proving a true differentiator, attracting MSSPs like San Antonio, Texas’ Liquied Networx;  Zain (News - Alert) Business, Jordan’s first secure SD-WAN managed services provider; and Node4 in the U.K. Each partnership displays the global demand for not just modern networking solutions, but secure, reliable and future-forward networking solutions – and MSSPs are quickly becoming preferred route.

“Our MSSP partners realize that delivering connectivity-only SD-WAN services is not sustainable long-term and are choosing to differentiate their services through the inclusion of security, which Fortinet Secure SD-WAN uniquely provides offering networking and security functionalities through a single offering,” Maddison continued.
