Home Hardware adopts Fortinet software

Home Hardware Stores Ltd. has joined Fortinet’s Secure Software-Defined Wide Area Network. The retailer’s dealer-owners have been using a variety of security platforms across some 1,100 locations, making network and security management a challenge as their business grows. The Secure SD-WAN will simplify and secure Home’s networks by replacing those products with one centrally managed digital system.

“Fortinet Secure SD-WAN was the perfect fit for our organization, allowing us to simplify our network and enable our geographically distributed network of dealers to access the applications they need with the same user experience across the organization,” Martin DeVries, Home Hardware’s manager of network and telecommunications, infrastructure, and security, said in a release.
