SD-WAN to the Forefront

Andrew Swinn
Technical Support Leader, AGnVET Services

The real clincher for us was the fact that Fortinet’s solutions were the most cost-effective on the market. No other vendor even came close for price-performance. In the end, it was a no-brainer to choose Fortinet’s FortiGate 60E/60E DSL Next Generation Firewalls for connection to our network of mixed internet services.”
