Customer Supporting Quotes
 “We were looking for solutions that would support our internal security Red Team, in addition to improving communication with our Amazon Web Services (AWS) cloud environment. To achieve this, we adopted the Fortinet Security Fabric, composed of FortiManager, FortiAnalyzer, FortiGate, FortiSwitch, FortiAP and a virtual FortiGate for AWS. We practically forgot about everything we did before and started from scratch. In just five months, we managed to reorganize our environment and we are already thinking about what the next steps are.”
