Oman Data Park (ODP) has expanded its managed security services offering by adding the Fortinet Secure SD-WAN solution to its portfolio.

This collaboration extends a seven-year partnership between Oman Data Park and Fortinet.

Founded in 2012, Oman Data Park is the Sultanate’s largest managed services provider (MSP) offering both local and international organisations with infrastructure, AI, cloud, public cloud, and managed security services.

“By adding Fortinet’s powerful and secure SD-WAN to our services, we are not only strengthening our relationship with Fortinet and enhancing our portfolio, but also allowing our customers to benefit from the unique combination of security, flexibility, single-pane-of-glass management and cost savings with minimal to no additional investment,” said  Maitham Al Lawati, general manager, Risk & Compliance at Oman Data Park.

ODP’s customers will now be able to replace their separate WAN routers, WAN optimisation products, and security devices with a single solution that is more secure, application-aware and offers automatic WAN path control and multi-broadband support. Fortinet’s SD-WAN also helps ODP customers to secure their applications hosted on ODP cloud, including email and web applications security and Advanced Threat Protection (ATP).

“Oman Data Park is one of Fortinet’s first MSSP partners in the region and we are pleased to see our relationship growing stronger through our shared goals – that of providing customers with critical next-generation security solutions,” said Alain Penel, regional vice president, Middle East, Fortinet. “Secure SD-WAN is a native component of the Fortinet Security Fabric and the FortiGate Next-Generation Firewall, and ODP’s customers will benefit from having such tools for undergoing digital transformation without the security risks inherent to other solutions that don’t take a security-first approach”

ODP have standardised their managed security services with Fortinet’s FortiGate appliances, ranging from entry-level FortiGate 30E series, to the high-end FortiGate 3700D series.
