Gartner Magic Quadrant For SD-WAN: Forcepoint Joins The Fray
The 2022 report saw the addition of security software specialist Forcepoint, while Riverbed and Fat Pipe fell off. Here are the SD-WAN vendors that made the cut.
A leader in this year‘s Magic Quadrant once again, Fortinet’s FortiGate Secure SD-WAN product includes FortiGate appliances and virtual appliances with broad on-premises and cloud-based security functions managed with the FortiManager Orchestrator. The company has an estimated 19,000 SD-WAN customers of all sizes and verticals globally.
The offering’s strengths lie in its integrated security approach and innovative roadmap. Additionally, Fortinet offers multiple purchasing options, including its consumption-based solution FortiTrust that allows customers to scale security services up or down, independent of hardware. However, Gartner said that large global clients continue to question Fortinet’s ability to meet complex enterprise networking requirements.
