With network and security solutions each recognized by Gartner, Fortinet and Masergy have partnered together to compete in the budding new Secure Access Service Edge (SASE) industry with converged offerings that are differentiated in the market. Here’s how Gartner names our solutions in their respective 2020 Magic Quadrant reports and how our unified SASE solutions deliver more value to businesses seeking the simplicity of consolidated network and security strategies.
Both Masergy and Fortinet have never thought of SD-WAN as a siloed product–each company has always built their solutions on the notion that security must be intrinsic to the network. With a shared appreciation for security-driven networking, Masergy and Fortinet are the perfect partner pair for companies seeking SASE solutions.
More than just a concept, SASE is a solution framework and an emerging market where SD-WAN and a sphere of network and security functions are being consolidated into one unified service. Comprised of SD-WAN, firewall as a service, secure web gateway, and other security features, SASE solutions serve as the culmination of network and security convergence. SASE takes closely linked (yet individual) industries and unites them in one service that is cloud delivered and cloud managed.
Investors seeking out SASE solutions are demanding best-of-breed technologies converged into one solution, and it’s here where the Masergy-Fortinet offering stands above the rest. We are uniquely positioned to compete in this new market with Gartner-recognized offerings that come in a single, seamless SASE solution delivered as a fully managed cloud service.
Here’s how Gartner names our individual solutions.
Masergy selected Fortinet to be our primary SD-WAN edge device manufacturer because of their expertise in security. And last week, Fortinet announced it has been positioned in the Leaders quadrant of the Gartner September 2020 Magic Quadrant for WAN Edge Infrastructure, placing higher in its ability to execute and further in its completeness of vision when compared to their 2019 position.
Our solutions are further differentiated when you take a look at Masergy’s entire portfolio of offerings, delivering the full spectrum of security services needed to protect corporate data whether it’s in a data center, on prem, and in the cloud.
Our joint offering is unique because we bring together best-of-breed providers into a single, cloud-native architecture that delivers simple, efficient solutions all while minimizing daisy chains and providing the industry’s most competitive services level agreements that Masergy is known for.
Truly transforming the WAN edge requires a security-driven approach to SD-WAN that encompasses advanced technologies and end-to-end security services from the leaders in each industry. It’s all possible when you partner with Masergy and Fortinet. Together, our companies will continue to disrupt the industry with solutions that are rooted in security-driven networking principles and designed to deliver the most flexible and innovative SASE capabilities.
