Security specialist Fortinet announced a new product to extend protection to branch networks and devices on the network access edge for enterprises with software-defined wide-area network (SD-WAN) implementations.The company said the new Fortinet Secure SD-Branch solution extends its existing security portfolio to network edge protection and device edge protection. In citing the need for such a solution, the company noted the explosion of SD-WAN implementations that expose risks in branch offices that often don't have their own onsite IT staffs, along with other concerns such as direct Internet access, Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) applications, the growing number of Internet of Things (IoT) devices and bring your own device (BYOD) risks.
