Fortinet will protect the data center of the Swiss telco market leader

FORTINET cyber security solutions were chosen by Swisscom, a leading Swiss telecommunications operator. The high-performance FortiGate-3700D firewall, FortiAnalyzer log and event reporting platform and FortiManager device will be deployed in the Swisscom data center, enabling centralized management of all infrastructure built using Fortinet products.

The operator selected the Fortinet offer due to the possibility of virtualization of firewall functions as well as scalability and flexibility, ensuring traffic security also in the future, when the amount of data processed in the center will increase significantly.

Ensuring the security of infrastructure providing more than 100 different telecommunications services is a key element of our long-term "Swisscom 2020" strategy. We want to build the best data center and to achieve this, we have selected high-performance firewall solutions from Fortinet. These are the most complete and scalable devices available on the market. They do not need to be specially tuned to achieve their maximum performance, " said Gianpiero Tavano, Swisscom Network and Security Engineer.

The improvement of network security will bring additional benefits to the operator in the form of simplifying its operation and increasing efficiency and reducing maintenance costs. Thanks to the FortiManager and FortiAnalyzer solutions, each of the 30 Swisscom network administrators working in different locations will have access to a unified management system ensuring full visibility of processes.

Joining Swisscom to the group of our clients proves once again that Fortinet solutions can meet even the most stringent security requirements in the telecommunications industry. Dynamic changes in the data center market and growing business needs of companies make the network security requirements more and more. Telecom operators and service providers expect better virtualization, scalability, performance and flexibility of solutions and great support, which are best for FortiGate platforms - said Patrice Perche, vice president in the international sales and Fortinet support department.
