IDC MarketScape Names Fortinet a Leader in SD-WAN for Second Time.
We are pleased to announce that Fortinet has been named a Leader in the IDC Market Scape: Worldwide SD-WAN Infrastructure 2023 Vendor Assessment (doc #US50471623, September 2023) report for the second time.* As organizations increasingly look to securely connect their complex, highly distributed networks, the market has been filled with vendors offering a wide array of solutions. Third-party reports like the IDC Market Scape SD-WAN Infrastructure Assessment and the recent 2023 Gartner® Magic Quadrant™ for SD-WAN play a critical role in helping IT leaders make informed decisions.
Today’s network architectures and operations are growing in complexity. And as users, offices, and resources are increasingly distributed, the network attack surface is also rapidly expanding. At the same time, the need for fast, reliable, and secure access to applications by users and devices has become vital. Addressing modern complexity—and the resulting threat exposure—requires a solution that can adapt as the network evolves. According to the IDC Market Scape report, the SD-WAN infrastructure market grew 25.0% in 2022, and they estimate that the market will continue to grow at a compound annual growth rate of 10.1% through 2027, reaching $7.5 billion.
However, not all SD-WAN solutions are the same. Many only support a limited number of use cases, others struggle to scale as your network expands, and many only provide minimal security, or worse, leave you to figure out how to secure your dynamic SD-WAN connections. What’s needed is a solution that can support the seamless convergence of on-premises SD-WAN with cloud-delivered security to support your hybrid workforce regardless of where they are located. You need a solution that enables hybrid and multi-cloud connectivity to accelerate and secure your digital-first journey.
