Major Telecom Operator in Switzerland Chooses Fortinet’s FortiGate Solutions for High Performance Firewall Capabilities, Virtualization, Scalability and Flexibility
Last June 15, 2015, Fortinet has announced that Swisscom, the major telecom operator in Switzerland, has selected FortiGate high performance data center firewall, FortiManager security management appliance and FortiAnalyzer network security logging, analysis and reporting solutions to protect vital data center infrastructure. Fortinet’s ability to virtualize high performance firewall capabilities was central to Swisscom’s investment, future proofing the scale and flexibility of security for its service delivery data center.
A key part of our long-term strategy is to build the best possible data center infrastructure for over 100 different customer-facing services, and to achieve this we’ve chosen Fortinet as our solution for high-performance firewalling.
Swisscom is the largest telecom operator in Switzerland, with over 21,000 employees and annual turnover of over 11bn€. The company offers mobile communications, fixed networks, Internet and digital TV services to millions of corporate and residential customers.
We found FortiGate to be the most complete and extensible solution available. With better scalability, and excellent virtualisation and network functionality, Fortinet’s solution enables resilient and innovative services. The Fortinet firewalls required no tweaking or tuning to reach their high performance test values.
We are pleased to count Swisscom among our customers, demonstrating yet again that Fortinet’s solutions are ideal to meet the most stringent security requirements of the telecom industry. The rapid transformation of the data center along with changing business needs have resulted in security requirements dramatically different from those related to legacy data center applications. Now, telecom operators and service providers demand high virtualization, high scalability, high performance, high flexibility and excellent support, which can only be offered by our FortiGate platforms.
