Spotlight on SD-WAN – Ping: A Podcast Episode 2

Episode 2: Spotlight on SD-WAN, starring Fortinet

Have you heard the hubub about SD-WAN? Well so have we, and we’re back with Episode 2 of Ping: A Podcast to discuss this increasingly popular option to connect business networks. To give us the lay of the land (or lay of the WAN if you will), Kevin and Andrew welcome Jaime Ortiz, Fortinet Principal Engineer. Jaime discusses Fortinet’s Secure SD-WAN solutions, which we’ve gone over a bit in blog and video form as well. Fortinet is notable in the SD-WAN space for its all-in-one security plus SD-WAN offerings, making deployment and management simple.

Get your hands on the new FortiGate 100F firewall, which puts these solutions into one appliance.

Also in this episode, Network Engineer Matt McLoughlin takes us through a few scenarios in our Engineer’s Minute in which SD-WAN could be the right choice for a business. Learn more about the network security services our certified engineers offer.

And in our Headlines segment, you’ll hear about how much small businesses prioritize network security (and how much they should), as well as some tips for cybersecurity training on college campuses and beyond.
