Published On: May 15, 2022Categories: Buzz, Uncategorized

Masergy, Fortinet, and Ingram Micro have teamed to deliver a new distribution sales route and tailored SD-WAN solution for VARs and MSPs. The move provides the reseller community with a combined offering that converges networking, security, and services, specifically targeting partners without service operations, technical expertise, or SD-WAN certifications.

Distributed by Ingram Micro, the solution combines Fortinet’s Secure SD-WAN solutions with 24/7 network and security management services from Masergy.

“In leading with the needs of our partners, we’ve designed a new distribution model with flexible SD-WAN service options that complement how resellers and MSPs like to do business,” said Bill Madison, vice president, global channel alliances at Masergy. “As a result, we’re capturing more market opportunities.”

“With Ingram Micro combining Fortinet’s industry-leading Secure SD-WAN technology and services expertise from Masergy, we are truly pioneering innovative new routes to market for our partners,” said Jon Bove, vice president channel sales at Fortinet. “Fortinet’s security-driven networking approach has been chosen time and again by customers and partners around the world to help them solve today’s toughest challenges of securing and connecting work-from-anywhere and hybrid IT deployments.”

“SD-WAN-as-a-service is a fast-growth, problem-solving sales opportunity for the channel and an area where Ingram Micro continues to expand and invest in our security and networking portfolio and resources,” says Eric Kohl, Ingram Micro’s vice president of security and networking. “As a long-standing, top-performing Fortinet distributor and Masergy’s new go-to-market partner, Ingram Micro is well positioned to bring Fortinet Secure SD-WAN and Masergy’s managed network and security services to our channel partners nationwide.”
