Build affordable Private SD-WAN networks based on the Fortinet platform.
Fortinet Advanced Partner Blaze and Bespoke Private SD-WANs
Blaze Networks, a security-focused SD-WAN provider and Advanced Partner of Fortinet, have created a national network which blends a highly resilient and secure network design with industry-leading secure equipment and our own UK-based Network Operations Centre (NOC).
Based around this network and Fortinet technology, we provide multi-site businesses with their own private SD-WAN networks which are highly secure, scalable and reliable.
Multi-layered Security in your Private SD-WAN
By using Fortinet equipment, a Blaze Private SD-WAN incorporates best-of-breed next-generation firewall (NGFW) security, advanced routing, and WAN optimization capabilities, delivering a security-driven, compliancy certified network for our customers. We employ comprehensive security set-up and configurations at all points within the network to comprehensively guard against cyber security threats
of all types.
Centralised Control of all Network Elements
SD-WAN technology is designed to enable your network to be much easier to manage and update with any changes needed. The Blaze Private SD-WAN infrastructure offers a single pane of glass solution to your network environment. Using Fortinet, Blaze Private SD-WAN is a complete end to end networking solution and can, optionally, extend into your LAN switching and wireless infrastructure.
SD-WAN Solutions for Multi-site Businesses
Businesses with multiple locations need to ensure the network and cybersecurity costs associated with those locations scale appropriately. Deployed within a company-wide SD-WAN network, the Fortinet SD-Branch platform delivered by Blaze Networks is an excellent solution which enables a business to avoid any trade-off between cost and security within the branch site:
- Branch locations will be connected directly to the Blaze Private Core Network, completely avoiding any need to pass data over the public internet within your company’s Private SD-WAN network.
- Blaze’s SD-WAN solutions include a wide range of Fortinet equipment at differing scale (and costs), all enabling a single network fabric and supporting full SD-WAN and security functionality.
- Fortinet SD-WAN solution enables businesses to converge their security, WAN, and LAN, extending the benefits of the Fortinet Security Fabric to their distributed branches, all of which can be managed (or co-managed) by Blaze.
- Fortinet Secure SD-WAN technology is integrated with network access to deliver the most secure and manageable remote branch in the industry.
Secure SD-WAN solutions for branches include FortiGate Secure SD-WAN, FortiSwitch, and FortiAP to deliver consolidation of branch services for LAN edge, all forming part of the overall SD-WAN solution which Blaze delivers and manages (or co-manages). When a business’ SD-WAN network includes several, or perhaps hundreds of different locations, the solution used within each site or branch needs to make economic sense. Blaze is able to deliver considerable network cost savings while delivering industry-leading security and network management functionality.
