GTT Communications, Inc. is expanding its managed Secure Connect portfolio, with a single-vendor Secure Access Service Edge (SASE) offering powered by Fortinet solutions. These enhanced capabilities combine Fortinet’s industry-leading security and secure networking technologies, including Zero Trust Network Access (ZTNA), Firewall-as-a-Service (FWaaS), Cloud Access Secure Broker (CASB) and Secure Web Gateway (SWG), with GTT’s award winning Managed SD-WAN and full suite of professional services for real-time visibility and control.
GTT is deploying Fortinet’s solutions inside its network infrastructure, maintaining all traffic on its global IP backbone. This helps reduce latency, jitter, and packet loss; it also improves network availability and assures improved security. GTT offers customers the choice of deploying their tailored and scalable SASE solutions on-premises or in the cloud using virtual machines to help enterprises reduce costs, simplify business operations and address complex security challenges. With both a single-vendor and dual-vendor SASE solution as part of its managed Secure Connect portfolio, GTT helps protect customers from the application to the endpoint while providing even greater visibility and control for IT and security teams.
“With many enterprises looking to consolidate their technology stack, GTT is poised to help solve the business networking and security challenges facing our customers in an ever-evolving threat landscape,” said Fletcher Keister, Chief Product & Technology Officer, GTT. “As an experienced and trusted networking provider, GTT can deliver complex security solutions with global connectivity and in house expertise for our customers.
