Spark says that by leveraging Fortinet Secure SD-WAN, it is able to deliver better application experience, automate network security operations, and provide better cost efficiency to customers across New Zealand.
The telco says the solution also makes it easy for corporate, enterprise and government customers to implement network changes that ensure business continuity for an expanding remote workforce with minimal requirement for IT staff and infrastructure resources.
The deal sees Fortinet building on a partnership with Spark that, most recently, resulted in delivering one of the largest technology migrations in New Zealand, with the physical migration of 2,500 sites, many in remote locations, aided by API-driven automation to “successfully and seamlessly” finish ahead of schedule.
Fortinet says it is now partnering with Spark to achieve complete WAN transformation for a number of other major clients across New Zealand.
“Customer experience is our number one priority at Spark, so we only use solutions that make connecting seamless, and perform for our customers. Fortinet is a strong partner with proven solutions,” said Shelby Ighani, Security Infrastructure Manager at Spark NZ
“Working with Fortinet has added multiple strings to our bow in terms of the services we provide our enterprise customers. Fortinet Secure SD-WAN offers great value for Spark customers, as well as a mature and powerful security solution.”
“We’re proud to partner with Spark NZ and share its commitment to delivering security-driven networking solutions. Fortinet Secure SD-WAN offers service providers like Spark the ability to onboard customers faster and deliver a solution that enhances customers’ application and cloud experience,” said John Maddison, EVP of products and CMO at Fortinet.
