Fortinet announced two dedicated data centres in India to expand the reach and availability of Fortinet Universal SASE, FortiGuard AI-Powered Security Services, and FortiCloud for customers across India and SAARC. According to recent Fortinet research, 94% of the Indian workforce is either hybrid or fully remote and, on an average, requires over 40 connections to third-party cloud applications. This significantly expands an organization’s attack surface and complicates enterprise security. To address this, businesses are increasingly adopting cloud-delivered services to securely connect their hybrid workforce.
