Fortinet continues to attract new managed security service providers (MSSPs) seeking a SD-WAN solution, including Node4, Zain Jordan and Liquid Networx.
“Increasingly, MSSPs in particular are delivering new managed services built on Fortinet’s SD-WAN solution. Our MSSP partners realise that delivering connectivity-only SD-WAN services is not sustainable long-term and are choosing to differentiate their services through the inclusion of security,” said John Maddison, EVP of products and CMO at Fortinet.
Research by IDC indicates that the SD-WAN infrastructure market is poised to reach $5.25 billion in 2023.
As an increasing number of businesses look to deploy SD-WAN, many are turning to MSSPs to fill skill shortages and other gaps within their teams.
"MSSPs can fill this growing need by creating value added services for customers that want to enhance user experience and reduce WAN complexity and cost, while securing their distributed networks," added Maddison.
