TYSONS CORNER, VA, August 9, 2019 — Bob Fortna, president of the federal business at Fortinet (Nasdaq: FTNT), has said government agencies can utilize software-defined wide-area network capabilities in order to support high-bandwidth applications and prevent cyber attacks in line with modernization efforts, ExecutiveBiz reported July 31.

Fortna wrote in a GCN guest piece published July 30 that SD-WAN can help address the challenges that agencies face as they move to modernize their information technology by providing the needed flexibility to centrally manage network connections, visibility into operations and a security infrastructure that is fully integrated.
