Case Study: Leading MSSP Fuels SecureConnect Managed Security Service With FortiGate-5000 Series Security Systems

The rapid proliferation of broadband connectivity has helped businesses of all sizes improve productivity and competitiveness, but it has posed a challenge for leading Internet Service Providers like MegaPath to distinguish their offerings in an increasingly commoditized market.

MegaPath is the leading provider of managed IP communications services in North America. To preserve this market leadership, MegaPath determined that the company needed to provide its customers with value-added services that complemented their broadband connections.

MegaPath approached the process of selecting a security technology provider for its new services by weighing merits of both financial considerations as well as technology performance. "We sought a solution that would enable us to provide our customers with enterprise-class managed security services at an affordable price," says Greg Davis, Vice President of Product Marketing at MegaPath. "We knew that, by adding value to our broadband offerings, we would be able to distinguish ourselves from the competition."
