Fortinet Recognized as a 2020 Gartner Peer Insights Customer’s Choice for WAN Edge Infrastructure


Fortinet today announced that it has been named a 2020 Gartner Peer Insights Customers’ Choice for WAN Edge Infrastructure for its Secure SD-WAN solutions. The Gartner Peer Insights Customers’ Choice distinction is based on feedback and ratings from end-user professionals who have experience purchasing, implementing or using Fortinet Secure SD-WAN.

Fortinet established the concept of Secure SD-WAN with the introduction of integrated SD-WAN functionality into its industry leading FortiGate Next-generation Firewalls in 2016. Since then, Fortinet’s security-driven networking approach to SD-WAN has enhanced user experience while reducing costs and complexity for organizations of all sizes and verticals worldwide. Today, Fortinet is the undisputed leader of “Secure SD-WAN” with over 21,000 SD-WAN customers globally.

Rajesh Maurya, Regional Vice President, India & SAARC at Fortinet  “As the pioneer of Secure SD-WAN, Fortinet is committed to delivering the most comprehensive SD-WAN and next-generation firewall solution to our over 21,000 global SD-WAN customers. We believe customer reviews, such as Gartner Peer Insights, provide candid insights into product capabilities, implementation processes, and support infrastructure. We’re pleased to be recognized by Gartner Peer Insights as a Customers’ Choice in WAN Edge Infrastructure with the most total reviews among all vendors.”

Fortinet believes today’s announcement of its designation in the first Gartner Peer Insights Customers’ Choice for WAN Edge Infrastructure continues its momentum in the SD-WAN market. With 263 total verified ratings as of March 24, 2020 – the most reviews of all vendors – Fortinet customers of all sizes and industries have provided honest reviews, which Fortinet believes is an indication of its commitment to delivering best-of-breed SD-WAN solutions. Fortinet believes its ability to offer the broadest set of enterprise-grade use cases, such as NGFW, segmentation, IPS, and SD-WAN using a network firewall, has contributed to this distinction.
