Orange Business Services, a global network-native digital services company, and Fortinet are partnering to deliver a disruptive approach to Secure Access Service Edge (SASE) by integrating Fortinet’s Security-driven Networking technologies into the Orange telco cloud infrastructure.
This reinforces security and networking convergence, while optimizing performance regardless of the user’s location. Unlike other SASE service delivery offers on the market, this seamless approach – with built-in integration and automation – ensures real-time service updates and an unparalleled user experience.
Digital acceleration, the move to “work from anywhere,” and the adoption of cloud connectivity have altered how network infrastructures and security need to be constructed. SASE converges networking and security in the cloud, supporting dynamic, secure internet access as part of a “work-from-anywhere” strategy to connect everyone and everything using cloud-based applications. SASE extends security capabilities, allowing all types of enterprises to take advantage of zero-trust network access and firewall-as-a-service, for example, regardless of location.
This next chapter in the Orange-Fortinet partnership, which has also yielded Flexible SD-WAN based on Fortinet Secure SD-WAN, provides the foundation for cloud-native transformations at scale for improved business agility and resilience. The result is a fully controlled end-to-end globally available SASE solution that bridges the gap between the user and the application. It delivers a secure and managed service from the Orange telco cloud infrastructure, boosted by cybersecurity expertise and capabilities with Orange Cyberdefense.
