Cybersecurity firm Fortinet said that as many as 21,000 organisations across different industries and verticals have adopted its SD-WAN solution. The company claimed that Fortinet Secure SD-WAN is able to scale to up to 100,000 SD-WAN sites.
Citing a Gartner Magic Quadrant for Network Firewalls report, the company said that by 2024, 50% of new firewall purchases in distributed enterprises will utilize SD-WAN features with the growing adoption of cloud-based services, up from less than 20% today.
