Fortinet® announced that it has been named a 2021 Gartner Customers’ Choice in the Gartner Peer Insights’ Voice of the Customer for WAN Edge Infrastructure and Email Security for its Secure SD-WAN and FortiMail solutions.
The Gartner Peer Insights Customers’ Choice distinctions are based on feedback and ratings from end-user professionals who have experience purchasing, implementing or using Fortinet Secure SD-WAN and FortiMail solutions.

The following is a sampling of the reviews that a few Fortinet Secure SD-WAN customers posted on Gartner Peer Insights:
“Lots Of Searching, Moved To Fortigate Secure SD-WAN With Confidence,” IT Manager, 1B – 3B USD company
“We looked around for nearly 6 months in the SD-WAN world, carefully searching for the right vendor, product, and support. After we spent many, many days of review, we decided to use Fortigate as our solution. This works especially nice when you are already in the Fortigate land, as we were. We primarily chose Fortigate as this would integrate with a lot of our existing infrastructure, especially security. IT also included the more advanced features we wanted like FEC (forward error correction).”
“Best Value SD-WAN Solution Combined With Performance And Support That It Top Notch”, Global Design, $3B – 10B USD company
“We have been extremely impressed with the ease of use/setup along with the amazing support that we have come to love with Fortinet. Super cost effective. Also, they have improved over the years how easily can it be managed without having to learn complex commands.”
“FortiGate SD-WAN, Problem Solver And Cost Saver!”, Senior IT Manager, $3B – 10B USD company
“Near seamless deployment execution and ability to replace many different suppliers/partners devices with a single solution. Near all-in-one capability. Almost couldn’t ask for more.”
