Fortinet has secured DTDC Express Limited’s network spanning 30 global offices and over 450 branches in India by bolstering its existing Fortinet security fabric deployment by modernising their datacenter and branch firewalls.

To better defend against sophisticated cyber threats seen in recent years and provide identity-based access to applications, DTDC Express decided to upgrade its existing firewall implementation to segment and control its network. The growing business demanded advanced threat protection capabilities with higher throughput to provide real-time connectivity and support for its end-to-end consignment tracking and tracing of shipments. Its network had more than15,000 users, so device identification and management were critical to provide access based on the type of device, operating system and the IP address connecting to the network.

The refreshed Fortinet security fabric deployment will enable DTDC to secure its network and data center with intrusion prevention and detection, content filtering and web filtering, application control and two-factor authentication to protect its web and mobile based tracking applications. Fortinet security fabric enables advanced threat protection and user management along with high speed network infrastructure.

Supported by a single source of threat intelligence from FortiGuard labs, the Fortinet security fabric leverages technologies from fabric-ready partners through an open integration ecosystem, and can be extended deep into new network environments with a single click using advanced fabric connector technology.

DTDC Express has deployed multiple FortiGate enterprise firewalls to secure its data centre and branches to ensure high availability and better user management.

Commenting on the development, Mrinal Chakraborty, executive vice president, technology and innovation, DTDC Express Limited, said, "Fortinet’s security solutions have been protecting our network for over 12 years now. We have deployed three generations of FortiGate Firewalls that have evolved from a UTM into a comprehensive security fabric to protect our network right from the data center to our remote branches and global offices. The FortiGate 3000D Next-Generation Firewall is a very simple-to-manage yet comprehensive security solution that helps us to control access with policies that segregate users based on their roles. A highly secure DNS caching system adds another layer of protection to our network and ensures business continuity.”

Meanwhile, Rajesh Maurya, regional vice president, India & SAARC, Fortinet, said, “DTDC Express has been our customer for 12 years, and we are pleased that through this latest deployment, we can continue to support their digital transformation efforts with our cutting-edge technologies. With Fortinet’s unique security fabric architecture and our FortiOS 6.0, DTDC has the option to add 200 new security features and capabilities for continuous risk assessment via automation. That will help deal with the issue of scarce security staff and also to continuously maintain compliance posture.”

“Technology is the backbone that holds together our operational services and we have been investing extensively to ramp up our infrastructure to enable our business expansion. Considering the fluid nature of our business and the range of applications and data flowing across our network, we needed a security solution that would provide us with the visibility to control user access. The Fortinet Security Fabric has helped us achieve our goal to create consistent policy and enforcement across the network. Additionally, massive amounts of data are being collected and correlated in our network environment. It was especially critical that segmentation controls be established to detect and isolate threats that have managed to penetrate the perimeter of our network. With Fortinet’s high-performance internal firewall, we are able to effectively protect our network from threats moving laterally across our network,” said Anil Kumar K.K, assistant general manager IT, DTDC Express Limited.
