Secure SD-Branch Facilitates Technology Kennards Hire Modernization

How secure SD-Branch facilitates the modernization of an Australian equipment rental company.

Kennards Hire, an Australian equipment rental company, has employees across 180 branches who need to access key software in multiple public clouds and found it no longer made sense to route all traffic via its primary data center. 

The Kennards Hire leadership team decided to shift its branch locations’ networking to direct internet connectivity through software-defined wide-area networking (SD-WAN) without routing through the corporate data center.



The strategy aims to prevent any reduction in data and ensure application security by consolidating and simplifying security at the branches through Fortinet SD-Branch solution deployment.

This case study explains how Kennards Hire plans to create its network’s future with SD-Branch deployment.
