Fortinet’s proven solutions in secure Wi-Fi markets, with its FortiAP secure wireless access points and FortiWiFi integrated security appliances for enterprise branch offices and small businesses have been among the fastest growing products in the company’s ‘advanced technologies’ portfolio. The addition of Meru’s intelligent Wi-Fi solutions to the Fortinet portfolio delivers peak performance in environments requiring high capacity load and a high-density of wireless users.
‘To truly protect against all possible attack vectors, we are continuing to expand our market-leading end-to-end security platform to provide customers with the visibility and continuous threat protection they need – from the data centre, to the cloud to the end-point,’ said Ken Xie, founder, chairman and CEO of Fortinet. ‘We expect the acquisition of Meru to help us deliver new solutions and services to help enterprises of all sizes deploy, manage, and secure wired and wireless networks in a mobile era.’
Fortinet and Meru customers will benefit from Fortinet’s commitment to providing secure, uninterrupted connectivity for their highly mobile end-users, while offering channel partners a broader solutions portfolio to take to market.
With the completion of the transaction, Meru employees will officially join Fortinet.
