Enea, Fortinet Partner to Accelerate Adoption of Secure SD-WAN on uCPE
April 09, 2019 / Ray Sharma
Enea announced a partnership with Fortinet, a global supplier of cybersecurity solutions, around secure SD-WAN for white box universal customer premise equipment (uCPE). The partnership aims to provide a flexible and cost-effective solution integrating Enea NFV Access and FortiGate Next Generation Firewall for secure SD-WAN. Already verified, the joint solution is commercially deployable on any white box scaling from cost-sensitive entry-level to high-performance devices. Moving away from traditional appliance-based connectivity to virtualized network functions on uCPE increases flexibility and lowers both operational and capital costs. Thanks to a generic and flexible platform at the customer premise, communication service providers (CSPs) can add new value-added services for managed SD-WAN to their enterprise offerings. A key requirement is flexibility to offer services for different use cases and performance requirements, which requires a scalable platform.
