Orange Business Services and Fortinet have partnered 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 optimising 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.
